Surely you can tell, by these several photos, how eager I am to show you how the Warrior Cat is coming along. This work  feels so right. Before while beading I often felt pushed - that I needed to hurry to get the animal done - but now I feel contentment and ease with such a rightfulness that there is no need to hurry. I judge these feelings to be coming from the work and not from my daily emotional status, which is tired, nervous and weepy. The tattooing on the face came out more like metal face protection - as used on the old helmets of jousting armour. Am thinking of how to do the tummy and am considering the solid tattoos of Moari warriors.
