Done! Done! Done! + Nikki waits for me to leave

Happy Dancing X 3ish! Managed these finishes since Monday -- Encore Scissor Keep (gift for Grammy K. I think the Gingher scissors match the Far Horizons Caron Watercolour fiber I used.

Caron Keeper (times two). Freebie pattern on the Caron web site. The one w/dark blue cording is a gift. The other one made from left overs. Camp Quality book cover w/felt, buttons & various fibers. The spider web didn't show up well in the pic -- it is done with Kreinik glow-n-the-dark fiber. Used a lot of perle coton #8 & some purple tatting thread. The buttonhole stitch is not a good one for me! spacing gets off. Today I will get stitching on my Friendship project ....

Nikki curled up about two feet from my creative corner. He is just waiting for me to leave so he can bat the perle cotton balls all over the place. Nikki (my daughter's cat) aka "BRAT" is a constant pest into my floss and perle cotton. He sneaks into my room, grabs a skein of floss & chews it up .... or he paws at the perle coton balls and charges all over the house with them!

Dog in the background is Buddy .... Buddy was boarded at a kennel & never picked up by his owner. We took him in when he was about 2 yrs old. He sneaks on the bed after DH goes to work.

Great finishes! I did that Caron/DT freebie as a tin topper - it was a quick, fun stitch. I love the colours of the scissor keep at the top.

Love your kitty pic - they both look very comfy there :)

Brat is THE CUTEST! What a face! And, thank you for rescuing Buddy! How can someone be that cruel?? Well, at least he wasn't just left at the side of the road, right? Your finishes are lovely - I am so impressed :-)
