I thought this week's theme on Wicked Wednesday - Horrorscope, is a tough one. But my husband said:  "Get real, it's the easiest of the lot - Year of the Cat". Every day, our cat is the softest, most purringful person around. However, we are forever cursed with a MEOW!!! of indescribable decibel proportions at 4 am every single morning. Since 2007, every year for us is year of the cat.

And just have to enter this ATC into Show Us Your Pussies Furry-Thing Goes challenge this month.

Here is the monster:

Quirky Stuff

This week's ColourQ challenge has the exact colours of the quilling strips I need to de-stash. So I've come up with this paisley ATC:
3mm (1/8") & 1.5mm (1/16") strip
This is the challenge palette:

Love this week's topic on Wicked Wednesday - Something Quirky. Here's something quirky alright:

And this is a little tag from my Tag Tuesday blog, that I made in honour of snow, which we don't have here.

A Couple of ATC's

In response to Colour Q's palette challenge for this week, I have a quilled chameleon ATC.

He adapted to this colour palette:

It looks like it's Father's Day around various parts of the world. Down here it's not til September.

The keyword on Wicked Wednesday this week is Bookworm. I found this a tough one and eventually ended up embroidering a reading worm. Suppose this can be used as a bookmark. It's been about 7 years since I read a book - shame on me!

June's topic on ATC's met Herz is Im Wasser (In the Water).
Does anyone remember Paul the Octopus who predicted winners in the 2010 soccer World Cup? Have a look herehere and here. Who would have thought that the whole world would come to love a yucky creature. Paul passed away shortly after he became famous. He had an interesting life.
Here is a tribute to Paul.

Paul is stitched in metallic thread on hand dyed cloth. Couldn't get the photo to sparkle enough, so took one in almost darkness:

Little Fun Инчиковый Проект - Июнь

Мои инчики для Little Fun на июнь:

Мой знак зодиака и мой каприз.
Муж и я водолеи; наш знак очень хорошо символизирует писяющий мальчик из Бельгии.
Мой каприз это Apple. Люблю наши iPad и наш iMac, и раньше или позже у нас появятся iPhone. Я не хочу жить без Apple.

Мой рассвет и мои достоинства.
Люблю кровавый рассвет. А мои достоинства - ха, смотрите и завидуйте.

That's What I'd Like to See in the Sky

For Something in the Sky, this week's theme on Wicked Wednesday, I came up with this. I suppose it can be captioned "If you can see me, the witch fell off".

Also entering this ATC into the Show Us Your Pussies challenge "Furry Friends".

For a change of topic, ATC Around the World's June theme is Anything Goes with Option Flowers. Shaken, not stirred, Mr. Bond, I have a black tie with white carnation. And just as my husband came up with this idea, the ever gorgeous Moo Mania & More published Masculine as their theme for this fortnight, so linking up to you as well, MMM   :)
A little fringed/quilled carnation added to the lapel :)
