Evie’s Cat Update

I was secretly excited to see that Evie had moved Snowball into a prominent place in her bedroom. “But why is she facing towards the books instead of out into the room?” I asked.

“Because I’m embarrassed about the face”, she responded.

Now, nobody wants to hear that someone is actually embarrassed by their handiwork, but I was certainly glad she told me. I knew she was unhappy with the face, but I think it was about the best I could do at my skill level, and I actually thought it looked kind of nice with those happy, anime-style eyes.

In any case, I made the cat for her, and it would be foolish to ignore her opinions on the matter. So I ended up taking out the eyes and mouth. Evie decided to keep the little pink dot on the tip of the nose.

She says she likes it better with no face, but I haven’t seen it turn up anywhere since then. Luckily, that’s about what I expected, so it wasn’t too disappointing.

  1. Tell it’s an Amish cat – the Amish don’t put faces on their dolls! I know I’ve been told the reason, but unfortunately can’t remember why that is. Aunt Jane in CO

    P.s. Evie is kind of right on this one…
