Kitty Cats and Happy Dances

My exchange ornament is done, but of course I can't share it with you just yet. I also haven't done the finishing on it yet. I'll have to get that done this weekend. 

After finishing that last night, I kitted up another quick ornament to stitch. Here it is in progress, while Hunter was having a little lap time today. 

This of course was a super quick stitch so it quickly became a Happy Dance!

This evening I worked on a project I picked up earlier this month, and it's a fundraiser for the Ottawa Valley Guild of Stitchery. Zeus seems to be an evening lap kitty. 


I happened to finish it off tonight as well!  It should of all been done in black, but I liked the idea of putting the word Ottawa in red.

Love your little helpers too. Mine are the same way. They keep you warm so I turn a blind eye to the cat hair that seems to get woven into everything I do. lol :)

Cute kitty pics Dani and lots of good stitching to enjoy. Love your flatfold finish of the L-K snowman from a few posts back..that has been on my wish list to stitch for some time now. The saying on that ornament is scary as it's going to be Christmas before we are ready!
