After seeing some great Christmas Garden finishes (Katrina, Lois and Marsha to name a few), I decided to get my Christmas Garden back out...

40 ct. Vintage Lt. Examplar, CC and GAST (1 over 2)

And I worked on Charlotte Clayton a little bit.  I have the outline of the orange kitty stitched.

Speaking of kitties, I have to share a picture of Oreo, She was sleeping on a quilt my mom made years and years ago (all by hand).

  33. That is one lucky kitten to find your home. I love it(girl or boy) also. I have always loved cats now I have a black cat with 3 white patches on the belly. His name is Shadow when he was small he followed us always. Now has a mind of his own.
    Those silks are beautiful I have never used silk. Is it easy to work with? Bonnie
