Happy Monday Everyone!
Today is the first Monday of Spring, so that makes it better, right? Right? Sorry for the delay in stitchy postings over the weekend, I didn't do any embroidery until last night as I was a little consumed with me new baby (see previous post). I did two squares last night to make up, so let's jump right in, shall we?
Square 19- Here kitty~kitty! This is my cat Egypt. He's my old man, I've had the pleasure of his company for 14 years. He's a sweet old dude. When I first brought my little fish tank home he would lay next to it on the desk and watch the fish swim around for hours. He never tried to get into it, he just liked to watch. Kitty TV if you will. I knew when I started this project I wanted to include a kitty square, but I didn't know it would be an Egypt square. Yay Egyie, you're a star buddy!
Egypt still likes to watch the fishies.
Square 20- I will admit it... (shamefully shaking my head) I used a patch. Groooaaan. I know, I'm a terrible cheater, right? But it's so cute, I couldn't help it! Plus it was late, like after midnight late, when I started this square because I had to tear out the first version of the kitty cat and start again, that was about an hour and a half of lost time and I needed to get to bed. Am I forgiven?? Pwease??
I did use a new stitch here that I hadn't done before, and I have to say that even though it's a little bit tricky and I made a couple of mistakes, I am LOVING this stitch and plan to use it more often in the future. The border surrounding the little patch is called a Cable-Chain stitch. Do you guys know this one already? I love it.
Thank you so much for your comments and well wishes with my new Vespa, I couldn't be happier, I think it's just beyond awesome! I don't know how much I'll be able to post the next couple of days, I have to fly to Southern California tomorrow for business and I won't be back until late Wednesday night. Does anyone know if I can take a small emboidery kit in my carry on luggage? Dang, I hope so! I could get a LOT done at the hotel...
