A Few Finishes

I finished up a few things yesterday on my sewing machine. First, my little red cat doll for Cathy D. is ready:

Cathys Cat

Next, I sewed up the little band sampler that I used on the cover of my book into a doorknocker:

Band Sampler

Last but not least, Kim stitched the Valentine Ornament design that I did twice. Once for herself and once for me. I finished them both exactly the same:

Valentine Ornaments

Thank you Kim!

Finally for today, I'm going to sew up the Sunflower Purse and get that finished. I also want to sew up my February Take It Further block. I added a dark blue cloud background to the little angels that I plan to use as a focal point. Remember, the concept is "what are you old enough to remember?" The first thing that came to my mind is the Apollo 13 Space Mission:

Angels Among Us 2

I noticed this morning that I'm having some trouble with my Corel Photopaint software. My brushes have disappeared and I don't know what to do. I hope I don't have to uninstall it and then reinstall it.

Beautiful cat doll! I just love the colors!!!!!!
The Valentine ornament is, well a must have I think. I just came across (while moving files around in my Cross Stitch Pattern folder) a pattern you did a while back I think. I won't say which just yet; just think it may be waaaay up on my "to do" list.

Your comfort kitty finished up beautifully. CathyD must be so proud!

I love how you finished your band sampler and the valentine ornaments! Thank you for mine!
