Grumpy cat

Little annoyed just wrote this up and posted it and it didn't post it -_-. 

Bought this pattern on etsy from sugarstitchbyellie shop. I modified it slightly changed the balloon from red to rainbow. Used thread bought from color lei. Also added the bow to the bottom of the balloon to give it a little 3D effect. Stitched this up for a friend.

Kitty tree finished

Here is my progress of the Kitty tree ornament from the last few days first here is a picture before back stitching.
Now one after back stitching which I did this morning :).

Lastly a picture of Kitty tree and Kitty stocking ornaments fully cut out. The tree originally had a yellow Pom Pom to put on the tree but I felt that was tacky and bought a yellow star button to put on it instead. Happy with my choice. 

On to my next project a grumpy cat magnet for a coworker. :)

Kitty Stocking 3

Ok I'm in trouble! Got an early birthday present today some had dyed thread.

So I usually buy this type of thread online some from the UK. Which can be vet expensive so I can't do it very often. Now this thread? It was bought from a family owned store in the valley. I have a store  I can drive to with hand dyed thread AND cloth! Woohoo! Need to check this place out in the future.

I got some done on my kitty just need to finish her head and a candy cane, then off to back stitching :).

Sorry not the best picture the lighting isn't that good.

Kitty stocking 2

I did not get that much stitching done yesterday my youngest was and still is really sick. Hit a point in the afternoon that I ended up running him to an instant care because he was showing all of the signs of an ear infection. Turned out I was right poor kid hopefully the medicine kicks on fast. Anyways here is a picture of what I did do since my last post oh and Happy New Years.
