A Few Finishes

I've had quite the busy day today.  Didn't feel good this morning but kept myself busy and it got better.  First, I finished up this piece:

It's not in the frame permanently yet.  I'll do that tomorrow when I go to mom's.  This piece is a gift.

When I had this finished, I sewed up a few more blocks.  A couple of cat dolls, a couple of purses and another framed piece.  I think I'll stitch that next.  I'm wanting to make some more felted brooches as well.  And some cuff bracelets and some embroidered things.

Speaking of embroidery, I pulled out my boxes of vintage iron-on transfer patterns.  I'm going to take them over to mom's tomorrow and we'll play with those.  It's been a while since mom and I went through them.

Am I all over the map?  LOL!!!  Yeah, my ADD is still here!

Anyway, I just added a few new additions to the shop:

These are recent finishes by Mom.

Also, Kathi asked me to mention that she is donating all proceeds from these earrings to the Susan G. Komen Foundation:

Pink Cat Earrings

All are available here.

Well, I'm off to heat up some soup and some cheese muffins.

To be so productive when I don't feel good!!! Your mind runs in circles like mine does but you accomplish something, I just think about it. Beautiful work!!

Love the framed piece. Looks like Mom is really getting back in the swing of things.

That is wonderful that you can be productive and make such beautiful things when you arent feeling quite up to par. I am sure there will be one excited person recieving that gift. I cant wait to see your transfers. Going to look at the new goodies in your shop and your friends shop too. Have a great day, Hugs from Kim

I’m glad you’re doing better, sweetie! We had rain when you did, and then again last night. Like you, I am trying to stay upbeat and on task. AND (surprise, surprise), I’ve got lots of things going too - a wall hanging, some RR blocks to do, and I just bought yarn for an afghan. Even with a standing Ott light, I don’t see well enough in the living room when watching TV to do CQ. So I’ll crochet then instead, LOL.

Your framed piece is gorgeous! I can’t believe how quickly you work. I seem to agonize over every stitch. And tell Kathi that I love my pink kitty earrings and wear them regularly!!

Big hugs,

You've been busy again! Your violet picture is so pretty - I really like the bow at the bottom. Another piece that makes me think of spring!
