At the risk of losing you, my lovely reader, did you see the pictures in the newspapers last week of Felix the Huddersfield Station Cat and his promotion? He's a proper sweetie - not to be missed - a real heart warming tale, and if you haven't already been convinced to look for him he even has his own Facebook page!
This week I have been working on:
1. Cocoa Sampler
|This is where I was last time!|
I stitched teddy's face, his bed, the spoon at the bottom right, and the start of a milk bottle and the turquoise and mauve background. Not a lot, I know, but it is growing!
Mini Thread Catcher/Mini Needlecase
Lots of pins helped me to stitch the base in place. It's not perfect, and it was tricky stitching as it is so small.
|This is just to show the grippy plastic base|
I have used, hopefully to stop it falling over too often!
|Almost finished - but I feel it needs a lid ........|
3. KnittingNearly finished the second front. Now need to finish knitting the back to match the length of the fronts, and then I have the front bands to add - not my favourite job!
|Perhaps you can see both fronts laid on top of the back?|
The weather is so changeable! As soon as the sun comes out I tend to put my knitting away, and when it is cold and windy I wonder why I haven't finished it yet!
I am joining Super Mom - No Cape for her Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party. If you have a few minutes free do have a look to see what super projects others are stitching! And Susan has some lovely Vintage embroidery stitchery motifs if you are hoping to stitch something for a loved one for Valentine's day.

Do have a look around, Kim has a lovely blog with lots of stitching and doll making.
Thank you for looking in. It's always exciting to see what you have to say, and I look forward to hearing from you!
