I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Summer is done....

Yes, Summer is finally finished!  Both in stitching and weather....  although Summer in Australia is still hanging on and will do for another few weeks yet.  But at least the weather will hopefully start to cool down now.  Often though Summer wags it's little tail throughout March and only lets go after Easter!

You are so not going to believe this but, I have been very good lately and stitching away most nights on my MS Lovers Blog Easter Exchange and alternating with the MS Lovers SAL#3 Cool Cats "Summer".

While I can't show my Easter Exchange stitching until after it arrives at its final destination - Russia... I can at long last show you, my finished "Summer" Cool Cat.  And by showing you "Summer", I can now put a big green tick against the MS Lovers Blog SAL #3.  Happy dance!!

I finished the last of the back stitch on Cool Cat "Summer" the other night!  Wow, that was a tough one (all that white and cream) but he is now all done.

I have finally finished all three of the original MS Lovers Blog SAL's which means I can start SAL #4 with a clear conscience!  Well, almost a clear conscience as I haven't made them all up yet... but that part will happen soon.

MS Cool Cat Summer - SAL #3
And here they all are.... all stitched and waiting for some place to go!

Finished MS Lovers Blog SAL #3 Cool Cats
Finished MS Lovers Blog SAL #2 Christmas
Finished MS Lovers Blog SAL # 1 Culinary Cats
I can't wait to finally start the next MS Lovers Blog SAL - "Puppy Love"... this weekend is the beginning of a new stitching adventure.

Well that's it for this update from me. Til next time, happy stitching
