Sorry, but I can't show you a photo of my latest bit of craft handiwork just yet as I need to send if off to the UK. Once Julie gives me the nod that she has received her birthday card and magnet all will be revealed! So stay tuned to this
Ok... so that's the birthday card done for the "Crazy for Kitties" birthday exchange, it's now time to get cracking on my next project - a stitched gift/card for Parsley's Valentine's exchange.
I actually started that on Monday night after I finished the back stitch on the kitty... so this is well in hand. The gift part of the exchange has been purchased and is just waiting for me to finish the stitching and then I can pop it in the mail to...... (secret destination)

what I am stitching!!
Luckily I had my phone on the table otherwise I probably wouldn't have been able to take this photo. Usually what happens is the cats (and Daisy) stop doing what they're doing when you go and get the camera!
I was sorting out my threads on Monday night for the Valentine's stitching and the gorgeous puddy tat decided to plant himself in amongst the threads!
I was fine with him helping sort threads until he decided that he wanted to hold the skein and help me cut the thread to stitching lengths.... then I had to put the thread under the table in my lap so he couldn't see them!! I was rather nervous that I would end up poking him in the eye with the scissors....
Well, it is back to the Cricket and more stitching for me... Have a safe and happy week, and if you are an Aussie, have a safe and happy Australia Day!
