Winter -- update

As I've said many times, I'm a one project kind of person. Right now I'm working on Elizabeth's Designs Winter Sampler. Anyway, I have a little progress to show. See that big white arrow? I did that darned leaf three times thinking I had made a mistake in spacing the stitches. Finally realized my fabric was causing an optical illusion making me think my stitches weren't even. What a deal!
I sent my HOE scissor fob this morning. It should be sitting in the Tulsa exchange center waiting to wing it's way to???. I have to say, it was very hard for me to give this one up. I'll be doing one for myself for sure. Photos will be posted when my partner lets me know its been received. It'll be a while.
A shelter update on Abner and Starcat (Klaus), both were adopted Monday to good homes. We took them to the vet to be neutered and spayed before going to their new homes. Seems both had already been altered, and Starcat is a Klaus. We were right the first time. He's all male.

This is going to be so pretty! I'm glad the kitties found good homes where they will be loved. I'd like to have another cat, but DH thinks one at a time is enough :)

Winter is looking lovely. I've done a couple of the Elizabeth designs and really enjoyed them. To bad on frogging the leaf only to find out it wasn't really wrong, that would be so frustrating. I love the look of linen, but sometimes the uneven threads can really be a bear.

That's wonderful that both kitties found homes, what a relief for you to have two less to worry about.
