A Bluebird, a Wishing Well and some Kitties

I recently finished off "Singing the Blues" by Little House Needleworks into a stuffed ornament.  I changed it a little by making the alphabet and border pink.  Although I think it was really pretty the way it was designed, I preferred to balance the colors out a bit more.  
The pattern for this design is another one from the Flickr group, Hoop Love Vintage Transfers".  I really love some of those older designs and they are fun to stitch.  I used  Cosmos Seasons and DMC Color Variations on this and I'm not sure what to do with it yet, maybe I'll make it into a summer purse.
This design came from a wonderful site called Homeberries.  There are bunches of free patterns like this one in a primitive or whimsical style.  I made this for my friend Choral who's a kitty lover like me.  And speaking of kitties, here's a couple of recent pictures of our spoiled babies:
Harley, being the silly boy that he is.
Tigger, with Harley in a head-lock.
And Trixie trying to sneak a cuddle with Tigger.  That's it for now, thank you everyone for looking at my blog once again and thanks also for all comments, I love to hear from you!

Your needlework is always so fun to see and so beautiful! I love the pink letters on the LHN piece, and I love your embroidery too. Thanks for the link to Homeberries.

Your spoiled babies look as spoiled as ours are. They are so cute!

Wonderful pieces. Thanks for the link to the Homeberries site. I'm developing quite a fondness for prim stitchery.

I love your Singing the Blues! Looks so pretty with the red of the alphabet. I'd never thought of doing that!
