Meet My Friend, Sammy!

Isn't he a cutie?!? I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this delightful design from Stitchy Kitty. He's stitched on a piece of blue 32 ct. linen from Silkweaver (one of their mystery colors) using all Crescent Colours fibers except for the scarf color, which is WDW's Confetti. That part got a bit boring, but I really did enjoy my time with Sammy.

BTW, the chart is a complimentary design when you join the Stitchy Kitty newsletter/Yahoo group.

Basking in the Sun

I love this design! I've wanted to stitch this design for quite some time, but it kept getting pushed to the back of my stitching to-do tote. I finally dug it out a couple of weeks ago and got it stitched. The design is by Brittercup Designs and it was a Charlotte Market exclusive kit in 2005. I decided to stitch it on 32 count Summer Sky linen from Silkweaver because the fabric was way too perfect for it. I used the Crescent Colours fibers included in the kit.

It's really an appropriate design for me since I've got 2 kitties who enjoy basking in the sun. A fun, fun stitch!

This Cat... sick! This is my precious Hannah Grace. She's been sneezing off and on for the past several weeks. Since we were taking Callie to the vet last Friday for her annual check up, I called and asked if Hannah could tag along and be checked out. She loves going to the vet and checking out all the cabinets and instruments laying on the counter! (Not sure the vet & staff like it, though! LOL) She wasn't running a fever, but he did a PCR test to see if she tested positive for Feline Herpes Virus like we've suspected ever since we brought her home from animal control. Since we already give her L-Lysine daily, he gave her an antibiotic shot and sent her home with antibiotic pill treats.

All was well until Monday when she woke up congested and snotty. Ugh! We've been there, done that before, but it's still no fun when one of your babies gets sick. She has one more day's worth of antibiotics, but I have a sneaky suspicion that she'll be going back to the vet before it's all said and done. I miss my little "helper" and curious kitty who likes to play in the kitchen while I'm cooking kitty. I miss her little chirp and her meows. I miss her curling up on my chest while I'm on the computer. I miss her tormenting her sister, Callie. I miss her little perky self.

I'll be so glad when this crud is gone!
