Over-One Grapes

I worked on the over-one grapes on Bordeaux Sampler for about as long as I could stand tonight - and then a bit longer. Wow, cannot wait until they are done! Part 5 is a mirror reflection of Part 3, I think. I am looking forward to that - it was a more enjoyable band with no over one stitching (except in the verse band). I just keep plugging along, as I am anxious to see this one finished. The colors are so pretty on the fabric :-)
I caught this shot of Beau and Angus sleeping together on the sofa a couple of nights ago. How rare for them to lie together. Of course, it is near impossible to make out Angus' black face here, but you can see that the fur on his front legs is growing back in now.

Your sampler is really coming along nicely. I can't wait to see the end result. And those kitties are just so adorable! I'm so glad to hear Angus is doing better too!

How peaceful those kitties look :) I had to click on the bigger photo to see Angus' face and I'm glad I did - he looks so comfy :)

The sampler looks lovely too :)

Hi Carol - I've been reading your blog for close to two years now and since I've finally started my own blog, I decided to leave you a comment. :) (I also added you to my blogroll - I hope you don't mind).

I'm glad Angus is doing so much better and I hope his vet bills are under control.

Oh, and your stitching has always been lovely! :)

This is such a sweet pictures of two of your fluffballs! They look so sweet. :)

Your BS looks great. Good for you, sticking to those over-one grapes!!

Isabelle said...

Ooooh, what a precious picture of Beau and Angus! They look so happy! That's perhaps the prettiest picture you've yet posted of your kitties... Love it! It exudes kitty sweetness and cosiness :)

Great progress on the Bordeaux sampler - wow, all that over one stitching you did! :)

Beau and Angus look so sweet cuddling up together :)

Angus & Beau look so cute together. Not being able to see Angus's face reminds me of a comment Paul made about Misha the other day. She wall all curled up in her cat bed sleeping and he took one look at her and said "where's her face?" she was so curled up he couldn't tell one end from the other.

I hope you get your over one grapes done soon so you can move onto the next part.

Cute kitties! Your work looks beautiful as always my dear :D :D

While the sampler is looking lovely, I can see where you'd be getting a bit tired of over one grapes. I'm glad you have a band coming up that will be a little more fun.

Beau and Angus look very comfortable together, and they are both so nice and fluffy. It does seem to take forever for the fur to grow back though. My cat Bug had his leg shaved several weeks back when he had to have his teeth done and it is still growing in.

BTW, got my fabric today. It is lovely, and you were right, my dragon will look spectacular on the Mummy's Delight.
