Singular Stitches: Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

I'm just so glad it's Friday. It's been rainy here, which is just great curl up and stitch weather. I'm looking forward to a weekend in my jammies!

I worked on Purr-Pals yesterday. I bought this chart back when ribbon embroidery was still the rage. (I never did get into that. The finished pieces I saw were truly beautiful, but just not my cup of tea.) I bought the chart because it matches my kitties. Anyways, the whole reason that I bring up ribbon embroidery is becasuse the Lazy Daisy stitch on the branches call for silk ribbon. I decided to just use the darker of the greeens (DMC #3051).

The leaves were going really well until I started paying more attention to the TV (we were watching an 'As Time Goes By' episode - I love Brittish humor!) than my stitching and had to cut my losses and stop while I was ahead. The leaves you see are the ones I didn't have to rip out.

(If you click on the picture, you'll see a clearer image)

And poor Mr. Tabby has been waiting for a face for a while now since I've run out of #740. I'll have to stop at JoAnn's and pick up a skein before he calls the ASPCA.

Oh, by the way...

Lynn, the Purr-Pals DOES match your kitties! How clever to turn a ribbon embroidery chart into XS! I bought several ribbon things, but also never got into it. Just got rid of mine on eBay. Can't wait to see this one finished! Love those kitty designs!
