A finish, a WIP, stash and a cat.

This is my first finish for 2010. It's part of the monthly from LittleHouse Needleworks. I actually finished it at the very beginning of January. I haven't decided how I'm going to finish them yet, I'm toying with the idea of doing them as flat folds and then displaying them on the mantle piece. It was really quick and fun to stitch up.

I've finally got my charts that I ordered the middle of December, I have no idea what the postal service was doing with the for a month, I was beginning to think that they had got lost.

My WIP is "4 Wishes" from Just Nan. I fancied doing something different and I've not stitched a Just Nan pattern for some years.

While I was taking the photo my cat Koko just couldn't resist trying to eat the threads from the edge of the fabric. He really is a naughty cat, you cannot leave any socks lying around as he loves to pinch them,I'm forever looking for odd socks now. He has a brother Wilbur but he's extremely shy and refused to have his pic taken.

Thank you once again for stopping by, and I really appreciate all of your comments.
