Another Finish and Update

I only started stitching this design yesterday, and have finished it this morning:

The design is Margaret Sherry's 'Hiking Cat', and it was in CrossStitcher magazine (June 2009).  I stitched it on white 28ct evenweave (2 over 2) and used DMC threads.  A great design to stitch!

I have found that I have some fantastic friends over the past few days.  There are things going on in my life that I can't talk about just yet, and these friends are really helping me out with things.  It will become clearer when I can talk about it in the next week or two.  As they say, it's at times like these when you realise who your true friends are!

Happy Stitching!

How cute is that? Sometimes I wish my cats would take a hike... lol
Nothing like a quick stitch to keep the MoJo going.
Be always in stitches.

I did not see an email address so I could answer the question you had on my blog, so I will leave my answer here.

I stretch and pin my pictures. I have also laced pieces but usually they are small pieces. If you have any other questions please email me.

Thank you for visiting my blog
recently and leaving a comment.
I followed the link back here
to your blog and have been
browsing through some of your
recent posts.

Your Hiking Cat is quite the
jolly little fellow in spite
of all that gear that he's
carrying along. Margaret
Sherry's cats are always
such cheerful designs, with
lots of "movement" to them.

Your Halloween Fairy looks
awesome in the mat and frame
that you chose for her. It's
such a beautiful design with
all the beads and sparkly bits.
I love the fabric that you
stitched her on too. Do you
intend to keep her out all
year or just bring her out at

Your SEBA Designs "Dimond" is
beautiful too and the perfect
project to stitch in the Spring
time. Love all the bright colors
in this, which is probably
because you used Dinky Dyes
threads. Yummy colors!

Your daughter looked lovely in
her pretty pink prom dress. I
hope that she enjoys prom night
and has a great time.
