I love the hummingbird, you did very well for your first one also. I like that the cat seems a little cartoonish. Makes me smile. Grin Hope your grandma likes it.

Looks like you have found a new craft for yourself!  I think your grandma will be so proud to have something that was made for her!  The colors are very soothing and perfect for a pillowcase!
