Another Valentine Cat Doll

I spent yesterday shopping in Crystal Lake with my cousin Kim. I had a very nice time with her as I always do.  Before she picked me up, I had a little stitching time and finished up my red and white Valentine Cat Doll:

Very traditional, isn't it?  And here's a photo of the next cat in Hot Pink:

It easy to see the outline of the cat on this one.  As you can see, I run a basting stitch on the sewing line.  This way, I can see how far I can go with beads and other embellishments.  When I complete the stitching, I just pull out that basting stitch.

Today is my annual New Years Eve shopping spree at JoAnn Fabrics.  I really don't need a thing.  I picked up some of my favorite Watercolour threads by The Caron Collection yesterday along with another yard of waste canvas.  I received some nice CQ supplies for my birthday and Christmas too so today, I'll try to be selective about my purchases.  Wish me luck!

I have both your books, and LOVE doing the stitches on waste canvas. I just read that you buy the canvas by the yard. Where? I have only found the 12" square packages at Hobby Lobby.
Thanks,

Pam! There you are!! As with a couple of my other blogs I follow, I wasn't getting updates, so I didn't know you were still here!! Your cats are so beautiful, I love the stitching. How are you and your mother doing!?

Happy shopping. You need to buy what you want when you see it or it's gone and you're sorry. I went to Joanne's yesterday. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Pam I just love this color combination, the white and shades of pink. This is so beautiful and has inspired me :)
A Blessed New Year.....a step closer to dreams come true!

Joann's sounds like such a fun place (of course we don't have them here). Maybe it's a good thing we don't or I'd be spending the grocery money for sure!!
