Scrappy Cats

I started this in class last week and finished the paper-piecing today. It's intended to be a Valentine's Day wall hanging, because really, nothing says "I love you" like a pink cat, right?

When I showed it to Leanne this afternoon, she informed me it was not a cat. "Cats have eyes, Granma, and that doesn't." Duh.
I'd like to have a small wall hanging for each month/holiday - plus I wanted more practice paper-piecing - so I also made a St Patrick's Day kitty. Check out the shamrocks in his ears.....

Borders - and eyes - will be added during class tomorrow night. I'm thinking the shamrock fabric will be the outer border. Maybe a thin gold inner border? Gotta raid the stash tomorrow and see what I have.
