Last Private Commission of 2012


This is Blockhead, my talented friend Hazel’s cat. Well, one of them. She is a confirmed cat lady. She asked me to immortalise him in thread for her. Now I would not normally divert from the Mother Eagle path and do something like this, but Hazel is a very magical girl, and Blockhead is a magical cat, so all good.
