Well, today is a report back on the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW).
I didn't get quite as much stitching done over the weekend as I had originally planned but I did get started on the new kitty card. It is about half way done so that is a result.
Since getting my iphone a couple of weeks ago I have become addicted to it... and Dragonvale!! So now I have to divide my weekend time around housework, washing, ironing (yuck), blogging (like), cross stitch (like) and Dragonvale (addicted).... oh and don't forget the furbabies and hubby!! (double like)
The kitty design that I am now stitching is from the Cross Stitch Crazy magazine issue 137. The designs are nice bright kitties with colourful flowers. Just the right design to send to someone in the UK with a February birthday!

Now before I leave you I have to share a photo of my little kitty. We were sorting out the spare bedroom for my step-son (Jack is going to come and stay with us for a wee while now that he has finished University and is about to start his job as a Graduate Mining Engineer) and the boys had to help - as they do! We put a plastic bag (recycled shopping bag) into the waste paper bin and no sooner had we done that and Felix decided that he wanted to sleep in the bin.
First he had to knock the bin over and remove the plastic bag. I swear to you that he pulled that bag out all by himself... no human help or kitty help involved!
And now he fits beautifully in the bin. No waste paper bin is safe when Felix is around. Whenever he sees one of these small bins he loves to turn them over on their side to see what's in there. And they do make such lovely kitty sleep spots.
So til tomorrow when I will be back to show you my pathetically small number of ORT's for January, safe stitching!
