Finally, the Stitching Update!

I know you've all been waiting with bated breath for my stitching update!  So without further ado, here it is!

This is a finish from during March Break, I just keep forgetting to share it with you.  I had barely started this piece before I lost Cuddles, and I decided it would be a perfect memorial piece for Cuddles.  I will frame it with one of his pictures.

Petit Chat
Des Filles et une Aiguille
Stitched on : 32ct Cloudy Day Grey Belfast from Silkweavers
Stitched with overdyed cotton

I have been progressing with my Quilt Squares, I've finished two more since I last showed them to you.  I've now got a total of 4 blocks done, and I've started a 5th.  This is my on the go/I'm exhausted project.


Finally, my obsession... Enchantment of Winter!


Oh and here's a little more Zeus cuteness!

Everything looks great like always! Now do you ever get to cuddle with Zeus-always seems like Todd's the lucky one. :)

Love Cuddles's tribute. Very sweet and nice cheery colours to remind you of the good times.

Enchantment of Winter is just going to be stunning!!!

I love the cat pic too. It makes me want a kitten! We currently have time-shares in a cat (we have breakfast it seems!) but I've not owned a kitten since I was 4.

Looking forward to seeing more of the WIP and more Zeus too.

jane said...

I love your piece for Cuddles and the quilt squares look great too. Zeus is soooo lovely - makes me want a kitten but Miss Lottie would feel differently I think.

Kate said...

Great progress - love that kitty.

Hi Dani,

A sweet tribute to Cuddles. It
will look great next to a
picture of him.

Love all the rich, dark colors
in your quilt squares and the
designs themselves are beautiful.
A relaxing, but also rewarding
project to work on.

Enchantment of Winter is going
to be spectacular! Those
colors are incredible and it's
amazing how 3 dimensional it
looks even at this relatively
early stage.

Zeus is settling in nicely I
see. So adorable.

Cheers!

First of all, Dani, thank you for your comment on my blog with sympathy for my loss of Bear. You recognize the life-changing of the loss of a beloved kitty. They take a piece of your heart with them. They change your life when they come and change your life when they leave.

I'm glad for the visit to your blog because I love the little tribute to Cuddles, I've seen this (I think) as a freebie on a blog. It's so sweet.Quilt Squares has such a pretty variety of color, but Enchantment is stunning!

Of course the best of all is the little beauty Zeus. Looks like my 2-year-old Annie.
