Fun mail and a WIP

See what I found in my mailbox? Annemarie's kitty! Isn't she the sweetest? I am in love! I won the kitty in Annemarie's blog giveaway. The kitty is filled with birch shavings and smells lovely. Annemarie took the time to stitch a little tag for the kitty with our initials and the year. OMG. Be sure to go visit her blog. Be warned: I am not responsible for ruined keyboards on account of drooling.


Last post I promised I'd share my new WIP when I decided on one. Here it is. Creepy from Lizzie Kate's Boo Club. I must have taken 20 pictures but I can't get the fabric color to come out. The fabric is the orange I dyed on Saturday. Think of the brightest tangerine you've ever seen...that's the color. I'm stitching with sunglasses on...



Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Lucky you to win that kitty. Congratulations! Doncha hate taking pictures sometimes? You want to show how nice something looks but the light, time of day, something just never comes out right.

Dee said...

Cute kitty. Your stitching isn't creepy! Love the fabric you dyed. Even if the brightness doesn't show --- it's still pretty.

Creepy is super cute! And the kitty you won is gorgeous!

Julie's Keepsakes said...

I've made 2 of those primitive kittys. Aren't they the cutest?

I remember what your orange looked like the day you dyed it. I wonder what has happened??? Did you try taking a photo outside? I can imagine this is really cute and the fabric is as bright as the sun. Are you going to do a purple next?

Nancy said...

Lucky you to have won Annemarie's kitty, and I love the tag she stitched! Your WIP looks like a very fun stitch.

Carolyn said...

What an adorable kittie that you won! You have a great start to LK's Boo Club. I like the color of your fabric.

saras said...

you win the coolest stuff! :)

PaulineD said...

Your kitty is gorgeous, I have that kitty in my stash to stitch too. I really want to stitch her, but I've got a heap of other stitching to do first. The tag Annemarie made for it looks just right.

I'm drooling over your kitty- I want one too! Maybe I can convince Annemarie to stitch mine for me...

Nita said...

Pretty kitty!
I tried squinting my eyes, but on my monitor the orange fabric for Creepy is not so orange. So then I pretended to have on my sunglasses - wow! that's orange!

Christine said...

Your kitty is just adorable!
The L*K is going to look pretty darn fabulous on that orange fabric too

Michelle said...

Annamarie's kitty is so cute! Love the new start - it's a pity the colour does not show up correctly - it does seem so bright on Saturday's post.

I can't find my blog on your blog roll and I am a follower of your blog and have you on my blog list as well - so feel free to add me if you want to :)

Have a great day!

Oh you wonderfully lucky person! Enjoy that adorable kitty from Annemarie. Love your new start!

Annie said...

That's the sweetest kitty ever! Give her a hug for me.

Very cool new LK piece. The fabby doesn't look as orange on my screen, but I love the variegated effect and how the stitching just pops!

Heidi said...

What a sweet kitty! I always admire her kitties! Congrats to you for wining one! Love the new start too. Can you adjust your photo color in a photo program?

Kathy A. said...

Love the new start - tangerine orange - sounds like fun!!!!

Annette said...

What a lovely Kitty, I will look on here blog, to what she al makes.
Your new start is lovely Creepy....

Old Yankee Stitcher said...

Very cute cat, how sweet. Great start on Creepy. I know the orange you mean as I just dyed my fabric last night, intense orange. Plus I have a big piece of peach which I am hoping to brown down today, but it was fun thanks for the inspiration. CJ ok;-)

Chiloe said...

What a cute kitty !!!

I love the color of your fabric ;-) Nice start.

Julie said...

Cute kitty, loving the new start too

Julie M said...

Cute kitty! My dogs would eat it though.

I wonder why your fabric color wouldn't come out when you took a picture. I'm imagining the bright color you described though and I love it!

Have a great day!

Micki said...

Cute kitty all right! Lucky you! I like your fabric dye job for Boo Club (finished mine last month)...and your San-Man owl in a previous post! Fabbie is perfect...don't recall that design...was it a special release? My cat-themed Halloween BAP is gonna have a few owls and a frog or two as well!
