This challenge is linked to Frederique’s sewing theme for her blog posts on A to Z Challenge, at

I’m a beginner and self-taught artist. I welcome suggestions for different art forms (and medium) based on my main subject, which is the domestic cat. Thank you.

Frederique’s Sewing/ Textile challenge for the letter A is Abat-jour, the French word for lampshade.

John has a suggestion for participants. Since we may be visiting other blogs, he says to look for bloggers who posted about apple, and the next day, bear and etc. He says its a scavenger hunt. We’re supposed to gather the specific items mentioned in those blog posts and copy-paste the link in our corresponding respective post. For eg., if a blog post is about apple, copy their link and paste it into my own post on the letter A.

  1. Thanks. I don’t have fabric scraps yet. I have to buy or ask for some from my local area tailor. I bought a stack of fabric squares which were meant for quilting. But some fabrics were dark colored and unsuitable for art. I can’t take close up pics using my iphone because the memory size is large and can’t be uploaded into this blog’s media library.
