October has been a busy month all round for me not just with work but also with the amount of stitching that I have been doing. In November there are 3 Craftbubble "Crazy for Kitty's" birthdays to stitch for and I thought that I would be a good girl and get a head start on my stitching this time... and guess what I am on target! Quite a surprise actually....
I have now stitched two of the three cards and they are already winging their way over to the UK and the Netherlands! I hope the girls like them.
So what did I stitch? Have a looksee....
Birthday card #1
Stitched for Ambersilk (Heather) in the Netherlands. I found this cute design in the Cross Stitch Collection magazine issue 198. This kitty is one of four designed by Lucie Heaton. Heather has a black and white cat and this design was just so cute, how could I not stitch this one for her?

Stitched for Stitchmadmummy (Debbie) in the UK. For ages I have been wanting to stitch the Margaret Sherry X-stitching cat but just never got around to it. So when it was time to look for a design for Debbie's card I went straight to the Margaret Sherry bookazine and low and behold there was the X-stitching cat looking out at me and just begging to be stitched.

Earlier this month it was my birthday and therefore my turn to receive the cards from all my Craftbubble friends. Below are the photos of what everyone sent me. One of the girls even sent a stitched kitty Christmas card! Also in the photos are the gifts that some of the girls sent - a couple of kits, some bangles, fridge magnet and a bookmark. Did you notice all the grey kitties that the girls stitched for me? Aren't they just gorgeous?

I am going to make this into a little pillow using Christmas fabric. I have even had a thought that I could stuff it with the 2011 TUSAL ORT's!
So that's what I have been up to over the last couple of weeks... no wonder I haven't had much time to do any blogging I have been too busy stitching!
I will be back again very soon to show you my new start and also to share with you what arrived in the mail the other day!
Til next time, take care and happy stitching
