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!

Friday Frolics & FNSI

Happy Saturday!

Now if today is Saturday, then that means yesterday was Friday.... and Friday now means "Friday Frolics".... and as it was the third Friday of the month it was also "FNSI"!

You would have seen FNSI (hosted by Sugarlane Designs) around before, but "Friday Frolics" is a new Friday stitching plan/idea suggested by Kaye (Kitten Stitching).

Kaye has set up a blog with the aim of stitching on WIPs or UFOs on a Friday night and then posting our progress... and who knows we may all end up with more finishes.  Link to the "Kitten Stitching & Friday Frolics" (FF) blog is here.... and also on my sidebar where you see this gorgeous badge that Kaye created just for the blog :o)


Without further ado... here is my FF & FNSI update for this week:

As I have been doing all week... I continued stitching on Lizzie Kate's "Feelin' Festive" as I really want to finish this one by the end of the weekend.

"Feelin' Festive" looked like this when you saw it on Monday for my "GG" post...


and now it looks like this:


I am now so close to finishing this one that I can taste it!!! :o)


Before I go.... this weekend is IHSW so if you're planning on stitching this weekend why not pop over to Joyce's blog (Random Ramblings) and sign up and then post your stitching update on Monday!

I shall now leave you to enjoy your Saturday - hopefully you have some gorgeous weather where you are, and no doubt if you have a cat they will have found whatever scrap of sun they can just like Oscar did the other day!


He wedges himself in between Hubby's bedside table and the window so that he can lay in the morning sun as it comes through the corner of the window!  He just adores the sun.... right now they are both outside on their "catio" (cat patio) sunning themselves in the Spring sunshine!


Til next time, happy stitching!

This little reindeer is just adorable. I have been looking for patterns with reindeer as I really love them for ornaments and cards and found some very cute ones for my Christmas cards.
