I did manage to snap a photo of the little Thanks A Bunch! biscornu that I finished up yesterday - now you can see that the top is stitched on Natural Belfast linen, while I used Olive Green Belfast linen for the bottom - it matches the DMC 522 in the daisy leaves almost perfectly. I cannot take any credit for this idea - I pinched it from Karen V's blog a few days ago, and I think she said she also pinched the wonderful idea of using two colors of linen from another blog as well.... so, I don't know who to thank - will choose to thank Karen V for passing the idea along :-) Thanks Karen! Now the wee biscornu is packaged up and ready to be shipped to someone in need of support and cheer - I hope this helps her a tiny bit!
Here is my little Lily - she has been sleeping at Mike's end of the sofa (aka "the lounge" for my Aussie and Kiwi pals) most of the day.... I wonder if she is ailing too? She is totally unimpressed with the wet food diet we have out because of Angus, so Mike keeps sneaking her dry food - oh, what to do?!! Sigh. Oh, Angus appears to be quite well. He will have another blood test soon to check on his kidney function. He is a real begger for table food lately - if you go near the stove, he vocalizes his desire for... eggs :-) He wants scrambled eggs! Funny cat :-)
Stitched on today: Started yet another gift, Rachael's Neighborhood Round Robin (will show more progress soon) and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow
