My Pretties ...

Happy Wednesday. I hope everyone is having a great week so far. We've actually had a couple of nice sunny days along with some rain squalls ... gotta love Spring!

I was stitching on Primitive Wizard of Oz while dinner was cooking ... slowly but surely the kitties decided to join me ... Subie and Chloe were first to arrive ... they love the back of the couch. My stitching spot is left of where Subie is sitting ... when I got back to the couch from dinner another kitty decided to join in on sleep time ... but this kitty, Beau, invaded my stitching spot!
I have to say after seeing how cute he looked all asleep on my stitching it was really really hard to move him ... but he's been moved! lol I know, I'm a mean kitty mommy! lol

Last week I was watching Throwdown with Bobby Flay ... love this show! Anyway he was doing a burrito challenge and I learned how to fold a burrito ... kinda funny because we eat a lot of mexican food all the time, but I've never been able to fold a good burrito, I end up rolling them ... well no more rolling for this girl ... they turned out great! lol

At work we get a productivity bonus in February. I took some of the money to get a few things finish finished ... I sent these to Vonna to work her magic and look what she created for me (pictures shamelessly stolen from Vonna's finishing pictures) ... First up is Why Is It finished into a flat fold ...
Merry Winter as a cute ornament ...
LHN's Coffee as a hanging pillow ...
and my favorite .. Bent Creek's Rise and Shine, finished as a wall hanger ... how cute is that! and it's now hanging in my kitchen ...


I've been catching up on American Idol while writing this post ... I sure love the guys, but not very impressed with the girls yet. Big Mike has my heart right now ... we'll see how he continues to do. Back to stitching on OZ ... might have a few kitty hairs to remove first! lol

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for Thursdays ...

love love love the finishes! I have a couple things to send to her too! I just have to figure out which ones and when.
You should have asked me when you were here in AZ how to fold a burro, I know how. LOL

Your kitties are really cute. Mine loves to "cuddle" (play with floss) while I stitch.

Great finishes too! You've been busy.

Harmien said...

Pretties all around!! Vonna is the star of finishings! Rise and Shine would be my favourite too! Enjoy all your pretties!!

Linda said...

Your cats look so cute. Our cat also likes to sit in my stitching spot, and I move him too :-)

Love all the finshes and Vonna did a lovely job.

Nancy said...

Beautiful new finishes, and Vonna always does such a pretty job of it.

Your couch looks like ours with the kitties except mine would have had the thread on the floor. Don't you love Mexican? We have a good restaurant about 3 minutes away! Enjoy stitching on your Oz and American Idol. We're watching it too!

Natasha said...

Awww look at those sleeping furbabies. My pup Samson loves the back of the couch also, hes an odd dog LOL

I love those finishes I keep forgeting to get my two things into Vonna for finishing.

I really love the mantel with the St Patricks theme.. My favorite holiday. I like how you are always changing that up :)

How are you coming along on AS? I posted a progress pic on my blog but I am not moving fast enough. DH is going away for buisness next week so I will have lots of stitching time :) Maybe I will have a finished picture to share, I really dont have much to complete.

Take Care

What a great job Vonna did on finishing your projects!

Can't wait to see an update on the OZ piece!

Carolyn NC said...

Wonderful finishes - you and Vonna make quite a team!

Karen said...

How cute are all of your finishes! Your kitties are cute too! Wish I could "relax" like that.

DaisyGirl said...

Vonna does such an awesome job with her work! I love it when my kitties join me too!
As to folding, I'll just have to try that one day, we don't get a lot of mexican, it's just easier to go out to Fernado's!
Hugs,
Daisygirl

I should pull out my Oz and start stitching too! :) I do believe that you are the reason that I purchased the design ~ saw it here.

Love all of the finishing that talented and lovely Vonna did for you. Her work is truly top notch.

Any interest in selling the pattern for Rise N Shine?

Susan said...

Wonderful wonderful finishes!
I guess I'll have to watch for a repeat of Bobbie to learn the technique of folding!
Happy Stitching!

Deb said...

Love all those finishes!!! I don't even know which one to pick as a favorite so I won't. But great stitching and Vonna's finishing was perfect for all of them.

Just love the picture of the kitty's especially the one cuddling your stitching!

Lisa said...

Gorgeous finishes!

Candi said...

Your finishes are beautiful!! I have two very fat cats! and they have to lay on something and it usually is my threads while Im stitching. But I cant bring myself to make them get up so i have to lift up a leg or tail to find the threads I need. :)
Happy Saturday!

I love all your stitching and Vonna did such a great job with the finishing. Your kitties are very cute!

I can never fold my burritos, I always fill them up too much and they fall apart.
