Green Comfort Kitty

I have loads to share with you today! First, I thought you'd like to see this photo of one of our sunflowers:

Our Sunflower

Scott took this photo on Friday. It grew from seeds dropped by the birds. Actually, we have a ton of them and they're so pretty, we decided to let them just grow! I would like to use this photo on a purse one of these days. I've always loved sunflowers. They're so bright and cheerful!

As planned for yesterday, I finished the hand-sewing on my latest little seascape cellphone pouch:

Under The Sea Cellphone Pouch

This is a gift for Scott's step mom. I'll be seeing her the first week of August and I like to have something to give to her. She loves the cellphone pouches that I've made her so I thought it was time for a new one!

I also worked on Maxine's quilt during the ballgame yesterday. I'll have some highlights for you later this week. When I got tired of working on that, I started stitching on the green comfort kitty doll:

If I finish this one today, and I expect I will, I'll start on the pink one next:

I'm not exactly thrilled with how the pink one sewed up but I know I can work with it.

Last but not least for today, I sewed up the side panels for my peacock quilt:

Peacock

I'm not thrilled with that bright blue in there. It matches the shading in the peacock's body but it looks a little bold to me. I think I can soften it with some ecru colored lace. I don't have any stitching frames that these will fit on so I'll have to ask Scott to make me something. It'll be a little while before I can start on these but I thought you'd like to see the pieced blocks.

Finally for today, I thought my cross stitch readers might like to check out a new blog. Felicia blogs about her stitching at Felicity In Cyberspace. If you have a free moment, please drop by and say hello to her!

I like it all of course - but I was especially admiring the peacock - the side blocks are very striking next to the peacock :-)

Your kitties look great Pam. As does the new cell phone pouch.
I'm sure you'll get the panels for your quilt to work for you, you have a knack of making things right.

I like the peacock pieces. I can see what you are saying about the bright blue, but the lace you mentioned, as well as some discreet dye painting perhaps, will change the look of it, as will your stitching. I'm sure it will work out to be wonderful.

Lucky to have a talented husband. =)

Love your sunflowers, Pam! I've always wanted to grow them but never had any luck in our stony ground. Native plants thrive, but not much else. Guess I should try sunflowers in pots!
The peacock is looking fabulous already. I think the colors really blend well with the embroidery, and the brightness of them is a great contrast to the black background of the bird.
