My Latest Finish



My most recent Saturday evening went something like this: I spent five hours reading a bunch of blogs and answering a few emails. Then I took a picture of the cookies I had been munching on all day.

Don't you wish you were me?

The cookies are the ginger cat ones from Trader Joe's. Usually, I just grab a few out of the container and pop them in my mouth without really looking at them. Now that I see them up close and personal in that picture, I realize they are not cute kitties at all. Good thing they taste good. (And, they are low fat.)

One of the cross stitch Yahoo groups I'm in recently held a stitch-a-long. I decided to do the Spring cottage from Les grilles de Maryse. It's a freebie chart (in English). Then I waited two months and didn't start it until Spring was officially over. I like how it turned out (except for the usual puckering along the seam to close up the opening in the little pillow). I used all the suggested floss colors and stitched it on Fiddler's 18 ct.
