'Cat in the Moonlight' has always been my best-selling design and yet in all these years I have never been asked to make a 'Cat in the Moonlight' lampshade until now.
Although very intricate and time-consuming, I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed this commission.
In order to make the design work, I have adapted the original drawing slightly, putting the cat and moon on one panel and the church on another.
The village with its cottages, some with lit-up windows and a back-drop of fields and sheep, continues all around the shade.
My customer's coming to pick it up next week and I won't want to let it go. I LOVE it!
It all took a ridiculous number of hours (best if I don't start adding them up) so this may well be a one-off!
