We adopted a new cat a couple of weeks ago.  We were looking at kittens at Petco in the top cages and this sweet girl in the bottom popped her head up.  We pet her through the cage and was loving the attention and purring very loud.  We went home and I couldn't stop thinking about her.  The next day we went back and got her.

My pretty girl! We've had her a week now and she's doing great! #ginger


She is getting along with Oreo pretty well.  There was a little bit of hissing in the beginning, but now they greet each other and touch noses.

I have been stitching and knitting a little bit.  This is what I'm working on... 

I finished an autumn design for Plum Street Samplers.  I can't show you the design, but I can show you the pretty thread colors.


I started a sock using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi (Cool Colorway). The pattern is Vanilla Latte Socks.  I'm using size 1.5 dpns.


Next, is my Shepherd's Bush Fold project.  I finally got all the grass filled in and started working on the top portion.


I finished the cat on Charlotte Clayton and I also got Isabella Fox back out and worked on it a little bit, but what I really want to get back to is Plum Street Antique's "Crown Sampler."  I just love this one!


I just need more time in my day!! :)

Slowly Stitching

My Stitching time has been few and far between lately.  I have been very busy at work, so I haven't been able to sneak in a few stitches during slow times.  The main two projects I have been working on are "Charlotte Clayton" and "A Full Heart."

40 ct. Vintage Sand Dune, NPI silks (1 over 2)

32 ct. Stone Steps linen, Various silk threads (1 over 2)

I also got a little stash in the mail from Down Sunshine Lane.  Blackbird Designs "A Rosy Morning" and the second part of Shepherd's Fold "My Home Fob." 



To save a little money on the fold project I painted my own paper mache box black.  I hope it will look nice once it's all finished.  


Well, that's all for now.  Hopefully, I'll have a finish to share one of these days!  Write soon!

Hi Everyone,

I'm so sorry I've been such a bad blogger lately.  My life has gotten so busy since I started working full time last fall.  I also feel like I've lost my blogging mojo.  I still post pictures on Instagram when I can.  I have been doing a lot knitting, crocheting and some stitching when I find the time.  I finished two pairs of socks...

Finished just in time for the big ice storm! I know you all up north are laughing at us down here!! #aniceribbedsock #knitting #socks #mistialpaca

I'm just doing a lot of filling in right now.  So that's what I've been up to for the last few months!  Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!  Hopefully, my next post won't take so long.  Until then, I can be found on Instagram!

Stitching Get Together!

I met up with the "Carolina Girls" (Faye, Karen, Charlene and Linda) yesterday for a stitching get together. We met up at The Stitch and Frame Shop in Rock Hill, SC.

I got a very pretty cut of 40 ct. Vintage Pecan Butter linen, a few threads and some needles.

We ate lunch and then stitched (I knitted) for a little while at Panera. Linda gave us some very yummy cookies and a kleenex cover that her mom made and Faye gave us all a very sweet pin cushion that she made (shown below)

Thanks again Faye and Linda!! I'm working on a Honey Cowl for a co-worker. These are fun projects.

I knitted a Honey Cowl for myself in green a couple weeks ago.

I have also been stitching a little. I join the Snooty Stitchers on Facebook. I started The Snooty Parrot sampler on New Years, but haven't gotten too much done. I really need to get back to it!

Hope you all are having a great three day weekend. I'm going to get to my knitting and laundry (unfortunately). :)
