Adding some stitching to a WIP

I don't understand this new sleeping area. She has been in/out of this box x 4 days now. DH tells me that I "spoil her"; however, she is very difficult to discipline.
I pulled out my afghan project. I don't know why it has been a WIP this long!! I worked on a corner block over the week-end. [after the linen issue ... and no, I didn't ruin the over dye fibers b/c they were inside a plastic bag] I think I could have finished this block; however, I found myself watching all the musical performances, Grammy Awards. Such talent.
This is what the afghan will look like one day. I ripped out stitching on one block, because I didn't have it centered. The pattern is Acorn Sampler Afghan c.1989 Jill Siegler, Samplers from the Heart [Mill Hill]. I'm using Anchor floss on Zweigart Novara Afghan Fabric.

Oh MY!!! I love the afghan! I am SO glad you pulled it out! I will enjoy watching this one (I have an afghan project too that I was so excited about and purchased everything to stitch it with when it came out in the SC mag...the Nature's Home afghan...NOT one stitch in it :( )

I love it, GF! :)

That will be fantastic finished. I love the acorn theme.

As to the sleeping arrangement, cats do find the oddest places to take a nap don't they. Sometimes it is just amazing what they seem to think is comfortable.

This is the most beautiful afghan design I have ever seen!!! I hope you find your mojo back for it to be completed: it will be a wonderful heirloom someday.
Take care!
