Cats & Quilts Counted Cross Stitch Series

Well, as you've probably all noticed, I've gone back to my old format. Sometimes we try to make changes and they work and other times, they just don't.

Anyway, I have loads of stuff to share with you today. First, I started a little Bonnet Lady from my collection of vintage embroidery iron-on transfers:

Like the little kitty I did over the weekend, I will be sending this to Pat for the Comfort Doll Project. If you would like to stitch this little design, here is the pattern:

In other news, I mentioned last week that my counted cross stitch followers were saddened by my retirement. Again, changes just don't always work so we'll just say, that I'll be designing cross stitch on a part time basis.

I decided to do a series of Cats & Quilts designs. There will be one for each month of the year. I've completed January & February:



If you're interested in stitching this series, you can find the patterns here.

Finally for today, here are pages 29 & 30 of my 1936 Herrschner's Catalog:

Check out the prices on the DMC Embroidery floss! 5 cents per skein!

Well, we didn't get as much snow as they had predicted last night. Fine with me. And it's been bright and sunny all day. Nice change from that overcast grey that we've had so much of since the beginning of December. It's supposed to get really cold for a few days and then warm up again.

Well, enough of the weather. Enjoy today's pattern and catalog pages.
