Is that a…Cat Flower?

I have to admit that the idea for this little project came to me in a dream. In the dream I saw what looked like an amigurumi cat head with a ring of flower petals around it – I’m convinced that it was an appliqué on a crochet sweater. When I woke up I had already forgotten most of the details so even the description I just gave is altered – sigh, if only we could accurately remember our dreams.

Anyway, let’s put aside the fact that I dream about crochet things and get on to this interesting project. I made a three-dimensional figure and called it a Cat Flower. Your first reaction is probably, “…Cat…Flower?” I know because that’s the reaction I got from Jay and a friend who had asked what I was working on. And maybe now you may have warmed up to the idea of a cat being a flower. Could make for a cute garden…
