Today Rachael celebrates her birthday. If you are a visitor to her blog you will know she has a deep love for cats.
As soon as i saw this lovely design a while back i just knew it would make a fabulous card for her, it was such a fun project to stitch. It's from a book i have called Quick to Stitch, Cross Stitch Cards.
Someone else i know loves cats too. My grandaughter Isabelle is fascinated with our cat and the 7 that come into my garden from next door. I showed her mum this free knitting pattern from Deramores newsletter and of course nanny had to get knitting straight away.
This week i had a visit from Tina (no blog). We meet at the stitchers meet up twice a year and she asked if she could take the short train journey to spend a day with me. We chatted and stitched and i even 'made' her call into my LNS - for me that stands for 'little' needlework shop as it really is not much bigger than a broom cupboard, and with DMC at a price of 89p i dont venture there often unless its an emergency. In this case i needed a DMC to make a start on Lynn's RR.
The summer exchange has been stitched, i finished that whilst Tina was here. I just need to make it up now but the post out isn't till mid June for that so a while before i can show you.
Monthly challenge has also been completed today. Stitched last week and made up this morning. I can tell you this months chart is What a Cut Up by Patrick’s Woods but again a no show till the last Sunday of the month. This one has been popular, i have seen a few different finishes of this in blogland recently.
Tomorrow, i am off to visit Clare.The RR goes to her after me, but, unless i get off here and stay up all night and stitch, she wont be getting it this visit!
I hope all is well with you and yours.
