Merry Christmas...a bit early


Hexagon Addiction

I can't stop making them. I have a problem!

Thimble Love

Yes, I collect thimbles too! These are my most recent purchases.

Handmade Cat Trio

This cute cat trio consists of a paper-pieced bookmark, a matching paper-pieced pincushion, and a cross-stitched ceramic cat pincushion. I bought the ceramic dish at a yard sale (bone china made in England). It's hard to tell by the picture, but there is a boat with two cats in it on one side of the dish. So cute! I just had to stitch up a small cat's face to create this unique item!
Cat straight pins purchased from Etsy.

Labour Day Weekend Saturday BBQ

Salmon Sampler served with new potatoes and fresh green beans (left to right: au naturel, homemade teriyaki sauce, dill, and maple and Dijon glazed). For dessert, baked pears with brown sugar and a balsamic reduction. 


My Garden Hopper

Ta-da! Here is my new toy! I've had it for a few weeks now. It was on display in the living room up until today. I knew once it went outside it would get all dirty (sad face). So, here it is. I used it this afternoon for the very first time! It is rather cute, don't you think?

Cross Stitch Love

I want you to know that I haven't been idly sitting around and not doing my cross-stitch and other sewing projects. Unfortunately, work and life get in the way sometimes. I was working on a cross-stitched dollhouse (two actually) that took FOREVER! So many small sections with lots of floss colours. They are finally finished! I posted one of them in my ETSY shop. Please check it out!
Also, I want to thank everyone who follows my blog. All 51 countries! How cool is that? I welcome your comments, too!


Cat Photo Shoot

Truffles the Cat
She looks like an angel, but she's the devil in disguise. All 6 pounds, 10 ounces of her! She's bratty and she picks on the dog!

A Day at the Mall

I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of the mall displays yesterday. I thought they were soooooo cute!
