I'm sure you recognize this as one of Little House Needelwork's designs from a few years back. It was a really fun stitch and when I decided to finish it off, I thought this checkered fabric would be perfect for it.
I also had some black and white checkered ribbon on hand which worked nicely for the hanger.
And now for something a little different:
I've been thinking about doing this type of embroidery for a while now, it seems to be becoming more popular lately and I see it everywhere. I used to do it a lot many years ago until I discovered cross stitch and then that was that. It was fun though, and the nice thing is now we have all the overdyed and multi-colored threads we can use which makes it even more fun. I found this free pattern at NeedleCrafter.com and she has many more that are just as nice.
I found these heart pincushions at a craft show yesterday. They are made out of vintage fabrics and I got them for the unbelieveable price of one dollar each! I don't suppose I needed any more pincushions but I just couldn't resist!
Here's Harley taking his afternoon nap. I've been trying to get pictures of our other kitties to put on the blog, but I can't seem to get them to cooperate. They always look away at the last second or run off when I go to get the camera. We have a lot of pictures of Harley because he's such a little ham he's always ready to pose.
Maybe it's because he's such a people kitty, he likes everyone!
Thanks, everyone, for visiting, I hope you enjoyed yourselves for a minute or two!
