Halloween Scared Silly

I started this in June and kept putting it aside, well I finished it in Nov. This cat is just hilarious. I am going to have it framed after Christmas. This is a Birds of A Feather pattern called Scared Silly. I used the weeks Dye Works threads, on the pattern it has a guide for DMC threads. I do not know why the color of the fabric is so light, on this picture in person it is very rich I used the Linen 32 count Sparrow and it is much prettier. Please stay safe.
Happy Holidays.

Cherry Heart from Shepherds Bush

I finished this beautiful heart last sunday, I am going to have it framed this week.
This is a pattern from Shepherds Bush, I love the colors they are so soft,
I cannot decide if I should keep it or give it to my beautiful Mother.
Happy Holidays everyone.

I am not a good blogger

Okay so I am not a great blogger and am a self taught computer user, I am still trying to download a picture so please be patient with me.
I sent my Blackbird Designs exchange off at the end of May and have not heard if the person has recieved it. I would like to post a picture but am still having problems.
I joined the second exchange and hope I get a partner as nice as Lane my last exchange partner, she made me such a pretty picture, the stitches were so lovely.
Thank-you Jane.
Well it is raining here in Annandale Minn. and poor peanut the dog cannot go out and play, so she is bugging Verne the cat.
I am working on a biscournu pattern and hope to have it finished by tuesday.
I will start my Blackbird Designs exchange project, wish me luck.
Have a good day everyone and remember that God watches us every moment of everyday.

My name is Catherine and I live in Annandale Mn. I have been married 32 years. I started cross stitching in 1971. I love the blackbird designs and most samplers. I have a christmas tree with nothing but cross stitched ornaments. we have a cat Vern and a dog Peanut. I am so new to this blogging and somewhat bewildered. I am 58 and all of this is so different from sending a letter or phone call. I look forward to hearing from you.
