Cardinals, gifts and kitties!

I was fortunate to win a chart from Cathy at Crafty Cat. She also was so sweet as to send me a big piece of aida cloth.   Here is a link to her blog.  It really is a great blog to read.

I decided I needed to do something other than all those flowers for awhile.  Mrs cardinal is looking rather nice!  It is a nice break as well.

Here is the baby afghan as well.  I bought some blue and yellow to add and more pink in case I need it.

I got sylvia all wound up and playing yesterday.  She has been extra silly lately.
And I have a video pf her enjoying some tummy rubs.  She lets Jack do it most of the time but not me!

LOL!!! Not that Sylvia is spoiled or anything! I could even hear her purring. My dog is laying down in that same position...on an electric blanket set on low. It's just so easy to spoil them, isn't it??

Now about the needlework - love it, the cross stitch and the crochet. I told you I was going to start on a project and I actually did - yay! I'm working on a little sampler-type thing for my daughter for her wedding. I'm glad I have a deadline or else I'd probably put it off. Have a good weekend ~ Beth Russo

Your needlework is always so lovely to see! Thank you for the thread offer, but I too have lots I'll never get to and #20 is my favorite. I love your 'Little House' cross st pattern. You always make me want to get back to my cross stitching 'wip'. Someday! In the meantime I'll just enjoy yours Michelle.

Congrats on your win, I worked that chart a few years ago and went to great pains to find a frame exactly like the picture. It is one of my most complimented on pieces of stitchery to date. I love visiting your blog and seeing sweet Sylvia and her wonderful adventures. Blessings to you and your family.
