Silly Grapes

Silly grapes... more like torturous grapes. It took me forever tonight to get them done, but now all of those over one grape clusters in band 6 are finished. Whew!
Mike had a lovely, large (huge), plush recliner delivered for me this morning as an early birthday gift. He wanted me to be able to stitch in greater comfort. It is wonderful - here you can see that Beau has also discovered it (I caught him in typical, undignified cat activity here... sorry Beau!). This chair is like a big plush throne with heat and massage. Nice!


Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and Bordeaux Sampler

Woohoo... relax, stitch and enjoy (if you can get Beau off, that is!).

Kendra said...

Wow, nice chair! I'm jealous. :-)

I don't know...you may not get to enjoy it too much, as it appears that Beau is making himself comfy. He blends in quite nicely! LOL!

Mel in Dubai said...

Oh what a lovely chair - enjoy it if you can kick Beau off - lol! I initially thought he was waving to the camera - lol!

Tannia said...

Bill says that Mike is making him look bad and requests that he stops with the really good gifts and settles for "just ok" or the "my - that's really thoughtful"...he's feeling a little redundant - especially after I show him how Mike takes care of you LOL :)

Now - off to hunt down a heated massaging chair for myself!!!

Barbara said...

Did Mike match the chair to the cat on purpose, or was that just a lucky break? LOL!

Seriously, my back is screaming "I want one, I want one!" But these blasted Dutch living rooms are so small that we'd have to take out one of our sofas to put in a recliner. It's gorgeous, and it looks SO COMFY!!!

Great chair, mind you don't sit on Beau or you'll get a claw in your bum ;-) he looks part of the furnishings !

WOW! Heat and massage...that may be just a slice of heaven :)

Kathy said...

It's nice to see someone who is so thoughtful to other people have something nice done for her. Now, move over Beau, Carol wants her chair. and I am ssoooooo jealous

Sampler is lovely, and I'll bet it felt wonderful to put the last stitch in the grapes and know that you don't have any more of them left to be able to finish that band.

Your chair is gorgeous, and looks so comfortable. It should be wonderful to stitch in (when you can convience your various furbabies to get out and let you have it, LOL).

Cheryl said...

Your sampler is looking fab. As for that chair...wow, that sure looks comfy! Lucky you

Ranae said...

Love the sampler, it's looking great. Ohh I would get lotz of stitches in that comfy looking chair with heat & massage.

Bonnie said...

With the heat and the massage how will you stitch without falling asleep? Didn't think of that, did you? Better ship the chair to me.

Your Vineyard is looking beautiful. I love the 2007 section. Congratulations on finishing those grapes!

Little Grey Cat said...

I want that chair! lol. It look soo comfy. We need a photo of you now disappearing into it, stitching in comfort. :o)

Susimac said...

Oh Wow nice chair. Beau seems to have priority tho'!!

Dawn said...

What a sweet man Mike is:) It looks so comfy!

Beau looks like he approves of the chair:)

Heather said...

Beau must think the chair is for him, the colour matches him perfectly ;)

When exactly is your Birthday Carol? Is it this month?

Svenja said...

Oh, you have a chameleon cat! ;)
The chair looks very comfortable. :)

Great progress on the grapes!

Lauren said...

Looks comfy!

Annemarie said...

I wouldn't mind such a chair myself. Nice present:o)

The BS is, as always, lovely. Hmm. BS might not be a good way to abbreviate the stunning Bordeaux Sampler...

Karoline said...

Bordeaux is looking gorgeous, enjoy your new stitching chair (if you can get a look in, Beau looks very comfortable there LOL)

Jenna said...

The grapes may be terrible to stitch, but they look fantastic! And well done to Mike for that gift. The recliner looks really comfy. And that was before you said that it did heat and massage! Mmmmm.... enjoy!

Glenna said...

I'm not sure I could stay awake to stitch in that lovely chair. Good work, Mike!

Sharon said...

Oh, awesome chair! I hope you get to sit in it-LOL. Beau is too funny! Do have much further to go on Bordeaux? It looks great.

Barb said...

Nice chair. But who does it belong to, you or Beau. Beau seems to think it's his.

Joanie said...

Oh...in these parts we call a chair like that a MARSHMALLOW chair cause they are so squishy! Beau blends right in. And that pose, we call that the turkey leg.

Your sampler is beautiful. Congratulations on the grapes.

PS...When's your b'day?

claudia said...

I'm so happy for you that you finally got through those grapes! And now you have a beautiful chair to relax in and do more...uh...stitching. I just had to chuckle at Beau. Such a typical pose for kitties...I love it!

Lelia said...

LOL! I'm borrowing DH's laptop & nearly spilled my tea looking at your new chair w/Beau. What a LOOK!

Enjoy your new seat - ahem, that is, when your furbabies allow you to use their new chair!

The new phone sounds nice - DH just bought a new computer book something Dreamweaver - which lets me off the buying hook.

Enjoy the day

tkdchick said...

What an awesome b-day gift! YOur hubby is so clever!

Anne S said...

Oooh, what an awesome gift - gotta love Mike huh? :D As for those dratted over one grapes, if you're still in the mood for more torture let me know and I'll send mine over to you haha :D Don't ask which part of (in)sanity made me change the date to more of them hmmm ;)

Carla said...

nice chair....it looks so comfy..I can see Beau thinks is comfy too :)

Aussie Stitcher said...

WOW!!! Great chair. I can feel myself sinking into the plushness (such a word....not sure) No wonder Beau likes it for his uummm cat activities LOL.
