Exclusive Colorful Cat - Sapphire

I've completed another exclusive Colorful Cat!  This is Sapphire and she's available only from Stytching Country:


I still have quite a ways to go on these.  There are a lot of cross stitch shops and I really want to help them either stay on their feet or get back on their feet.  It's really fun to do this too.  The shop owners are so happy to have their own special cat design and stitchers get to check out shops that they probably never heard of.  It's win/win for everyone!!

I will have 2 new cats ready for my own Etsy store next week and I have to get going on the Autumn issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly so there's a lot of great stuff coming!!

Exclusive Colorful Cat - Lollypop

Meet Lollypop The Colorful Cat!!!




She's exclusive to Hobby House Needeworks in New York.
In my quest to help the needlework shops though this crisis, I offered Kathy Mills, the owner an exclusive cat design.

Not only was Kathy thrilled but she in turn will be donating her proceeds to Lollypop Farm, her local Humane Society! Can you believe it!! Sharing the love and paying it forward!! And ya'll know how I feel about animals! So thank you to Kathy Mills!!!

Here is the information about Lollypop Farm as written by Kathy Mills:

Hobby House Needleworks is proud to be a corporate sponsor of Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Great Rochester. Lollypop Farm provides shelter for homeless or abused animals, and offer programs to ensure pets will receive veterinary services while they await their forever home. Support from sponsors and the community enable approximately 115 staff members and 800 volunteers to care for around 10,000 animals each year.

Pam Kellogg, owner of Kitty & Me Designs, has donated her design services and Hobby House Needleworks is donating 100% of all profits from the sale of this pattern to help this amazing organization.

And here is the link to Hobby House Needleworks:

Exclusive Colorful Cat - Delightful

I've been on a mission to help the retail needlework stores through this crisis.  Honestly, I don't even want to talk about the crisis anymore.  The radio and television beat it like an old rug!  But I want to help the shops so I've been doing exclusive Colorful Cats.

Meet Delightful:

Delightful is exclusive to Needleworker's Delight located in New Jersey.

I've known and worked with Jim the owner for many, many years. I tried to work Jim's cat in the colors of his store.

This is first Colorful Cat that I done for a dark colored fabric.  I think there will be a few more since the dark background really makes the cat pop!!

So if you're collecting the Colorful Cats, contact Jim at Needleworker's Delight for this one!!

Colorful Cats Exclusive - Gingerbread - Chelsea Buns Cross Stitch

Today, I have another Colorful Cats Exclusive - Gingerbread:





I mentioned yesterday that due to this virus problem, I was concerned for the retail needlework shops. I'm on a mission to help them so for the shops that I work with, I am designing a "Colorful Cat" that is exclusive to those shops.

Gingerbread is exclusive to Chelsea Buns Cross Stitch.  Chelsea's shop is located in Ottawa Ontario Canada.

I'm hearing that the Colorful Cats are starting to become "collectible".  Wow!  I've been told that some cross stitchers are on a mission to have all of them no matter where they are!  How cool is that!!

So, please hop over to Chelsea's shop and order your copy of Gingerbread today!!

Exclusive Colorful Cats - Cobweb Corner

During this challenging time, I've been concerned about the retail needlework shops who have had to close their brick & mortar stores and operate solely through their online shops. I asked myself how I could help them. 
 
I decided to do a few Exclusive Colorful Cats. Exclusive meaning that as I can do them, each shop that I work with, will have their own cat design and it will only be available through that shop. These exclusive designs will not be available through me. They will only be available from the stitchy shop that I designed them for.

The first to be released is Cobweb. This Colorful Cat is exclusive to Cobweb Corner located in Swisher Iowa. Here is the link to Carla's website:
 
And here is the Cobweb Corner Facebook page:
 
 
Colorful Cat - Cobweb
 
Cobweb Corner is also hosting a "Colorful" Stitch Along. Please join in! I'm sure you'll love seeing everyone's stitched pieces and you can share your own as well!!


Carla is taking pre-orders for Cobweb now. She will also stock the little spider charm that's used in the design.

If you love my Colorful Cats, you'll love Cobweb!!!
