A Few More Stitches

Here are a few more stitches that have happened this week.

This Christmassy Cat will, in the next week or so, be made into a hanging decoration and posted off to someone special for a very special greeting.

My Summers End Mandala Madness Part 14 is done (the fawn bit). Hope to get part 15 started this week too.

And I enjoyed making my last garden inspired weaving, so I've started another fiberart weaving to match it using the same warp, and it has begun with an even plain weave at the bottom for a reason, which will be revealed at a later date when a bit more has been completed, and some more of my freeform style has been added.

And, after a joint effort (hubby & I), we got all the lounge furniture out of the lounge so that we could get that carpet cleaned before putting up the Christmas tree and decorations. It looks so much better now, and we can put the furniture back in tomorrow.
We also went shopping for two days to select a houseful of furniture for the new house we bought for our son to live in while at Uni in another town a few hours away from us.
Phew!!! It has been a very busy week.


This has been another YOP post.


Happy Stitching

  1. The christmas Cat is charming. Looking forward to seeing the completes project. The mandala looks interesting also, as does the weaving you have started. So many great projects you have.

  2. Oooh, I love the little glimpses of what you're creating. The anticipation of seeing the finished projects is fun. I love embroidery and can't wait to see that finished Christmassy Cat - and your other projects, too!

    1. Thank you Becki. The mandala will be a while to completion yet as I've got 4 more part to go. There are up to 6 rounds to each part, and it is already taking a long time just to do one round. But I shall persevere with it.

  5. I love your cat! How did you make it? It looks like it was hand dyed and then embroidered and appliques? Wow! A work of love and what a lucky person to receive such a beautiful gift. I want to make a mandala...one of these days. Some of them get really huge. How big is yours? Your weaving is lovely with all the pretty colors of the rainbow. You are very creative!

    1. Thanks Sam. The cat had a light paint wash first, then ironed to set the paint, and then embroidered, no applique tho. It's for my daughter who is a 'crazy cat lady'. The mandala is in threads, and is getting close to the size of my round dining table now. I'll measure it for my next post on it.
