Vacation II

Although I am not tired of stitching Sarah McPhail, I am tired of looking at her on this site. So she'll be back in a couple of days when I've moved away from the pink roses. I picked up a couple of things to work on last night before I went back to work on Sarah. This is English Whitework. It's fun to stitch, but it's definitely daytime stuff. And I can't get the color right with the camera--it's more purpley than this photo indicates.

And this is something I hadn't worked on for a while. Too Christmasy. Only, it's just two months away now, isn't it? The colors in this are great. I'm forgetting what I'm using on it--a Lakeside I think. Maybe pear. The colors in this photo are pretty true to life. This is almost done.


I've got just one more day of being housebound with my schoolwork, and then I'm free. We're planning a trip to Richmond to look at furniture and go to lunch at someplace fun. And come along with us to Maryland to Captain Billy's for a mess of steamed blue crabs. I'm planning a field trip to In Stitches, always good. And since it's supposed to rain on Friday, I'm hoping to set aside the whole day for stitcher numb-butt.

The bunnies' union says that the bunnies deserve a rest, and the cats' union wants to know why they're never featured here. This is Little Friend, saying good night.


Night, all!

Great whitework! And I love the Christmas WIP too! It's unbelievable that it's getting so close! Your little kitty is so pretty! Are the bunnies happy with their vacation? :D

Little Friend looks just like my childhood pet, Booboo Kitty. Booboo was sweet as can be. (Yogi was a money cat and very mean.)

Good move -- you don't want to get on the wrong side of those unions! A bunny strike can't be pleasant!

Oh hello, that's a handsome/pretty feline!
Your new sampler looks very promising so far, even if the colours aren't true to life in the picture. And I adore that Christmas house. Puts one in the mood for Christmas!

Tell the cats that it's because cats are weird. RG says so! And we believe him.
