Happy Easter to you all! I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday and have enjoyed the break.
Hubby and I stayed home this weekend except for the odd shopping trip to buy weekend supplies and a wedding present for my brother's big event next weekend.
We have spent the weekend at home with the furry babies, catching up on all the TV shows that have filled the IQ box over the last couple of months and crafting - me stitching kitty cats, hubby sewing up a quilt top.
I have finally finished the third cat for the MS Lovers Blog SAL #1 Culinary Cats. Yes, a big tick off my stitching list for 2012 - little happy dance happening here!!

Once stitched I made it into a small cushion - with hubby's help. I sewed the front part but I got him to actually make the cushion as he is much better and quicker at cushions than me. Thank you my dearest clever hubby :o)
The fabric I used was a panel from a range called "Peony Tales" by Betty Wang. The main panel we used on the back and the side bars trimmed the front of the cushion. It is so pretty and I still have about 1/2 of the fat quarter left - bonus!
So that's my latest stitching update for this week, however I do have something else to show you. While playing on my blog today and going through my finishes I noticed that I hadn't shown you two finishes from last year and early this year. How did I not do that.... no idea at all!!
So here they are!

Now for the other finish that I forgot to show you! This was a freebie that came with one of my magazines and I stitched this in January. It is a little Christmas card designed by Joan Elliott. So cute.. and just what I needed to stitch one weekend as a fill in. Can't believe that I didn't tell you all about it though!!

I will now say bye bye and sign off. I hope that you all have had a safe and happy Easter.
Til next time, happy stitching.
