Anna Ming – Siamese Cat Pillow

Anna Ming

Here’s yet another Siamese cat pillow. This one is of a real cat we had in the 1970s and 1980s named Anna Ming. She was a lilac point Siamese.


Siamese Cat and Butterfly

There are two items with this design, a pillow and a piece of stretched fabric. Perhaps Helen was thinking of turning this into another kit….?  The pillow version has less of the body filled in, more like her best-selling Siamese cat pillow kit.

Sara the Lhasa Apso


Sara was a real Lhasa Apso who lived with us in the 1970s to 1980s. Her name comes from serendipity. This design is from when she was a puppy and had short hair. There’s also a necktie with Sara on it somewhere, but I guess I forgot to photograph it.

Lady and Gentleman

Lady and Gentleman

This lady and gentleman came from the wallpaper in my parents’ bedroom. This pillow looks as though it has seen better days…

Pillow with Eric the Red

Eric the Red

This was a real cat called Eric (the Red) who lived during the 1960s. He tolerated only a little petting – then he’d attack your hand!

Cougar Pillow


I’m guessing it’s a cougar.

Pillow with Cat Watching a Spider

Cat watching a spider

Her crewel designs of cats often had them looking at insects – spiders, bees, butterflies. She loved cats and knew them well.
