Welcome, everyone to Catrinket. My name is Cathy and my cousin used to call me Catrinket for a nickname when I was little. When I decided to start a blog to show off my crafting, I thought the name was perfect. I've been working with polymer clay since 1995. I LOVE it! And I also love quilts (but sewing, not so much), so I merged it with my clay work and the results are here.
Quilt patterns lend themselves to caning, which is a good thing because I can't get enough of it! It can be a bit of a problem, though...what do I do with all those canes (I probably have well over a hundred quilt canes right now? Lucky for me, I've signed up for the year-long PCA Virtual Retreat and I've managed to find new ways to use my quilt canes in the first two lessons! Yay! First with Syndee Holt's bracelets, and now with Katie Oskin's animal figures.
I used some of the techniques from Katie Oskin's class to make this Emerald Tree Boa. I'd been wondering what to do with this quilt cane--I put a border on it too soon and reduced it too far to be very usable. But it works great for this critter! Thanks so much for coming!!
