a smal cat

so... if someone follows my blog with a certain continuity, will probably start thinking I love cats... CORRECT!!! LOL

this is another small one I stitched in Spring but completed only last week-end:

I really like this pattern (Alice & co.) and have stitched it with a thread from Les Fils du Rhin. both pattern and thread were bought last year in Alsace, France where I went with two friends to visit a lovely embroidery fair.

Cats are like chips: you can't have only one!!

isn't it true??? surely it is in my home!! I live with three cats and a fourth has choosen to "migrate" at the ground floor because she doesn't like the two newest one... so I really have 4 cats.

I have stitched this sentence with a hand dyed thread made by Heartstitch Designs, while the cat-buttons were made by 4 cupcake addicted. they are two Italian girls with a lot of creativity that create little treasures I like so much!!!

Margaret Sherry SAL

with some friends we were planning to make a nice surprise to a common friend who has 2 twin daughters that will be soon 2 y.o.

she loves Margaret Sherry's patterns, so the choice was almost obvious

I stitched this (and have done it as part of the SAL):

and here you can see all the things we prepared for the two children:

a little Cat-work made in a summer week-end

I have stitched this on a hot summer week-end and I have realized that this cat seems so much to my cat Birba, who is a calico kitty with her three colours that seems to change position each time you watch her... so this work has gained the name of Birba:

The thread is one of Les Fils du Rhin. I really like her threads full of colors and easy to be used.
