Sunday Sampler--Mini

I made some progress this week on the cardinal Christmas ornament. Here it is on Friday:

And today:

This little guy was a Prairie Schooler freebie at my LNS--he's on a little card about the size of a business card--so clever (chart on the reverse side):

I went into our little library to take these photographs, since the sun was on that side of the house. This room amuses the heck out of me. With six cats in the house, there's very little that doesn't receive a regular dusting of cat hair, despite a virtual army of vacuums. You name it, we have it: uprights, canisters, little ones, big ones, bagless, beltless, European, American (the Germans make a heck of a vacuum, in my opinion). But even with regular vacuuming and brushing, it's hard to keep up. So we have this one room, with a door that closes, but with glass panes. It's so satisfying to go into that room and shut the door. Within minutes, a crowd gathers. Here are three of them now (payback time for whoever threw up on the stairs last night):

"Aren't you going to come out and feed me?"

A pet-free room!! That's brilliant! Once the kids get old enough to understand the concept of closed doors (not to mention glass doors!), I'm going to have to give this a try!

Your cardinal is coming along beautifully.

Thanks for giving me a laugh so early in the morning - or rather, thank your lovely kitties! I can imagine you smirking at them from behind the closed door :o))

Lovely progress on the wee cardinal!

Ohhhh! What a precious, cute tabby face! Wonderful photo!

Have been a "lurker" on your blog for a long time; as a fellow stitcher, I really enjoy your progress and finishes.

I love the picture of the kitties in the hall, and I can almost read the thoughts in their minds! Your cardinal is going to look stunning.

Your cardinal is going to be just lovely. I love bird patterns and this one just got added to my list of "must haves." And the cats are adorable.

LOL I just adore these pics of the cats, Glenna! Wonderful idea and darling cats. Before I had scrolled down, I thought I was going to see another of your creative ideas of taking pictures of your RR stitching!!! LOL You always give me a good time reading your blog..Thanks
