A Happy Dance and some framing

I've not had much stitching time recently, due to working 2 teaching jobs, but I finished 'Astrocats' today:


Capricorn Cat was the last one stitched on the piece...

I have also had two pieces framed recently:


'Chorus Line' by Valerie Pfieffer

'Faith' by My Big Toe Designs

It's half term at the moment, so I have a week off work.  However, Rachel is here with her boyfriend Nick for the week, and Steven is home until he gets a placement...I'm also off camping with the Guides on Friday for 2 nights, so I don't think I'll feel like I've had a break once I go back to work next week!

Happy Stitching!

I got tired just reading about your schedule, and your "half term errr break?" LOL. Your life is a busy one but it sounds wonderful...enjoy having the kiddos around..my youngest is home for the summer from university, and my oldest has his own apt but is still home on the weekends, so it's a good happy medium.

Your framed pieces are gorgeous! I love the "Faith" finish, the colors are so serene and peaceful. Your "Chorus Line" is adorable, and I love the colors as well :) I love love love your "Astrocats" what a huge WIP, and to finish must feel wonderful!

Enjoy your break and be safe..take some time to stitch.

Hugs

Oh, Astrocats is fantastic :)
(At first I reda "Aristocats", you know that Disneystory... That would have been pretty cool, too!)
Nice to hear that you have a week off, even if you are pretty busy :) Better than not having a week off. I hope you enjoy it :)

Wow, everything looks great. Astrocats is adorable!! You picked great frames too. I have A Chorus Line on my wish list. Did it have lots of fractionals in it? Faith is lovely too. Like the color you chose for it. Grats on all three finishes!! And good luck keeping up with yourself, lol. I could never do all that!!
