A Quick Kitty & Me News Brief

Happy New Year 1

I didn't post yesterday because I was in a "mood". It was just the weather. I could physically and emotionally feel the storm coming and going through and it was just better that I didn't post. Basically, like my mom always says, if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything.

The storm has passed and the driveway cleaned up so my mind is in a better place today. I did start on a little stitching project yesterday but it's a gift so I won't post a photo of it until a later date. This is a small project and I'll probably have it finished this afternoon and then I'll start something else. Haven't decided on what yet but I'll let you know when I know!

Just as a reminder, the 2008 Valentine Mystery Stitch-Along starts this coming Thursday, January 3rd. I don't mean to keep repeating myself here but I don't want anyone to miss out if they want to join in. I know there are still holiday festivities going on and I know there are holiday bills to deal with but I also know that January is one long, boring month and the Valentine Mystery will certainly be helping me get through it! No, I won't be stitching it but I sure do enjoy watching everyone else work on the project! Anyway, if you've been meaning to treat yourself to a fun project, you can find it here. There are also some new patterns there just released the other day so if you have time, you might want to check them out and think about your 2008 cross stitch projects!

As for my projects, I have a bunch of them planned but in no certain order for any of them. One of my first larger projects (and not large by any means) will be a new purse for myself. I have a vintage photo of a 1920's lady sewing on an antique sewing machine. Hmmmmm.......does that remind you of anything? Ha, ha, ha! Well, you know I had to do something with that! It's already sewn into a 9 inch block and it's at the top of my list for 2008. I just thought I'd do a couple of small things first to get back into the swing of my stitching routine.

I also joined in on Sharon B's Take It Further Challenge which will start on the 1st. That will be a fun project and I will most certainly need a sewing day next week! It's a year long project so expect me to do a lot of chattering about that.

I have an order for a purse with orange sunflowers so I want to get that one taken care of ASAP. I need to get up to Michaels and see if I can find some small orange sunflowers. Then there's my peacock quilt but I need a frame for the side panels. Yes, another good excuse to go to Michaels Craft Store! Twist my arm, ooooh, that hurt! Ha, ha, ha!

Oh and then there's the Valentine Purse that I sewed up with another 1920's lady on it dressed in pinks and then a lime green purse with a bright red cross stitched ladybug (one of my little designs) and of course, Comfort Cats and cellphone pouches and fish under the sea and my usual chatter. Then there's my crazy spontaneous ideas which you know will bug me until I do them......sigh!

I think 2008 will be an interesting year here at Kitty & Me. Be sure to tune in!

I don't recall where you live, but I live in ontario canada (originally from Germany) and I despise our weather! I totally understand your 'mood' (((Hugs))

Glad your weather (among other things ;-) improved. Will be watching the year progress, and looking for your wonderful projects!
