RAK!

Margaret, of A Sampler of Stitches, recently finished the most beautiful bourse. It's by the Cat's Whiskers and when I admired it, Margaret sent me the chart! I found in the envelope a cute Bent Creek and a darling Lizzie*Kate chart as well. I wonder how she knew I like cats?
Thank you, sweet Margaret!

That's it? Half an hour to go through the 230+ blogs in my reader? Was everyone invited to a party, except me? Post, people, post! Don't you know I am lonely? Really, I'm serious. Jessie has been busy with school and work and Rick's shift has him at work until late. This is my third evening all alone this week. (Sniff, sniff.) You'd think I could get lots of stitching done, but I haven't. I decided to plug away at this snowman. I'm thinking I am probably being too fussy and critical. If I still don't like it when it's done I'll work something out with my partner.

That reminds me to remind those of you participating in the snowman exchange...the mailing deadline is next Monday! If you think you are going to be late please let me know.

OMG I just got that SAME Bent Creek White Cat pattern off of Ebay last week! Karma? lololol....I thought about changing his color to a gray to look more like my Smokey cat! That was a wonderful gift she sent.
