Singular Stitches: Stitching with friends

Stitching with friends

I worked on Santa of the Forest some more on Friday and Saturday. We watched Series 6 of As Time Goes By (hysterical as usual) and The Weatherman (didn't care for it). We recently got a DVD player for up in the bedroom (yay for cheap technology!), so I can comfortably stitch, watch a movie with DH, and, most importanly, allow for the comfort of feline companions. Very rarely are we ever without the company of either, or both, kitties.

Itchey is snoozing while I work on Santa's left shoulder.


A bit wider shot shows that Abner is also in attendance.


Jenna asked about how the kitties got their names.

We adopted the kitties from a local shelter, and these two were brought in together (they were house mates, but not litter mates). Itchy and Abner were the names that the previous owners had given them. DH's guess is that Itchey (I added the 'e' to her name) is named from the 'Itchy and Scratchy Show' on the Simpsons, because she looks like the cat, but the cat was Scratchy. (This is all from DH. I've never really watched the Simpsons.) Abner is a mystery, though it really is a fitting name for him. We would have most likely picked some more...intellectual (nerdy?) names like some mythological character or some star in a distant constellation.

Of course, as most pet parents do, they're rarely called by their names anyway.
