Little Black Cat

I'm finally getting around to posting a snappy of my finish. It's been done, we have just been crazy busy. It's also been a horribly sad time for us. Dash's oldest brother passed away and we've been out of town last week with family. Between planning home stuff and work stuff in order to to be away, I found comfort in stitching...a few stolen moments.

Design ~ Sneak Peek "Halloween"
Designer ~ The Trilogy
Fabric ~ 28 count Lugana, tea-stained
Fiber ~ DMC

Molly was boarded at the vet's office where she got giant frozen beef bones to pass the time. She came home "blowing coat" (seasonal shedding) and there are drifts of hair piled in every corner. Surely, it MUST be spring, right? 

A funny to amuse you...the receptionist at the vet's left a message today asking me to confirm Molly's boarding appointment this week. I returned the call saying that appointment was LAST week. Okay...so I get the feeling when I showed up with Molly last week, they had no idea why I was there, but happily took her in anyway. Have I mentioned how awesome our vet is?


I've now begun another project. The colors are scrumptious. Here's what I've got so far. The title? The Designer? I'm keeping it a secret from you. You will have to guess!

I'm a shameless tease.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I agree the colors do look good enough to eat, almost like some wild berries... interested to see this one grow too! :)

So sorry to hear your news. Love the Black Cat finish :) The new project I bet is a Bent Creek design but I have no idea which one. Take Care :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's brother, Sharon...how very sad for your whole family. I'm glad your stitching brought you some comfort. That little black kitty is adorable and I like the fabric you're stitching him on.

I hope spring is making an appearance in Oklahoma.

Thinking of you and your husband at this sad time...
