We found Raoul in July 2014 in our neighborhood when driving home after watching a World Cup match. He was emaciated, dehydrated, and covered in fleas. It took a couple of days to nurse him to the point of acting like a normal kitten – he wanted constant human contact to ease his achy belly.
This was the day he figured out how to climb on my desk and “help” me sew.
This was made from a few charm packs – Solstice by Kate Spain.
It took me a few months to finish this one, as I worked on it casually between other projects. No hurry since it was meant to be a holiday gift.

I step away for a moment and come back to this!
See how he’s growing?
He always jumps into the picture immediately! Nice coincidence that he was wearing holiday clothes, too.
