This month I have mainly been stitching on my Rose Garden Mandala, but I did take time out to stitch a little birthday card for the Craft Bubble "Crazy for Kitties" Birthday Exchange.

Also this month I finished my Autumn Kitty (MS Lover's Blog SAL #3) into a little pillow. I found the fabric for this a few weeks ago when we went to Handcrafters House. Once I started to stitch the pillow I realised just how perfect the fabric was! The pillow ended up being bigger than I had originally planned it to be....when I stitched the large piece of fabric to the kitty for the back of the cushion, I looked at it and thought it actually looked nicer with the fabric on both sides of the kitty.... and so I continued along a different line! Here is Autumn Kitty in all his glory!

Now this weekend has been the weekend of IHSW... but unfortunately I haven't really stitched very much at all - but that is for another post tomorrow or Tuesday. When I do the IHSW update hopefully I will have a picture of my finished Rose Garden Mandala. I am in the final run up to finishing this - stitching the beads. Almost done!!
You may have noticed that my pictures have all been prettied up! I read somewhere on my blog stalking travels (sorry can't remember which blog) about a website called Picmonkey that you can pretty up your pictures... so I had a little play today and the pictures on this post are the result. If you want to have a look and play with your pictures I recommend it. It is a free website - for now at least!! So make the most of it :o)
Well dear readers, that's it for another ORT report. See you all again same time next month.... Pop on over to Daffycat's blog if you are interested in signing up or keeping in touch with what is going on with the 2012 TUSAL.
Til the next new moon on 19 June 2012, happy stitching and may your collection of ORT's keep growing!
