That's really sweet! Well done Anne!
Thanks! I'm really glad you like it, Mike. Does the Missus like it too?

It is beautiful Anne, good work.
Wow, that's great!
You have deft hands Pieanne.
Thank you all!

I almost lost my right hand 4 years ago, after my cat scratched me. I had gangrene (?) up to the elbow, I could have made a fortune in gore ads (silly me, I didn't think of it!)
Two weeks in hospital, and a large graft on the top of my hand. Fortunately, I can use it normally now, though the surgeon doesn't know by what miracle.

Sorry to tell that, but it does me good to talk about it!

If you have a cat, and if you have roses, make sure you have 60% alcohol at home, it's the only effective way to disinfect the scratches.

And thanks for adding one more reason to my arsenal for 'Why Not to have a Pet'.
Oh Gosh, what a story!
Anyway, it's so good that you didn't lose your hand, and you can use it to create such a beautiful work!
It was not the cat's fault, you know... Just one bad luck in a billion. He's still with us, but I must say I never carry him. I was given another one, and she's enough to reconcile anybody with the "pet" concept.
