Some Stitching

cross stitch of many simple cats
I finished the stitching part for three of my little projects. Not sure what or where Aunt Millie will end up, but I sure love her. She is found in The Flower Patch book by Bronwyn Hayes. The redwork teacup is Bea's BOTM for August. And the cats cross stitch I will make into a little scissor case. The chart for the cats is a freebie offered here.

I've been sewing the last of the all little, dark log cabins. Should have a picture of that after the week-end.

Connie W. is having a 'Just Because' giveaway on her blog. The prize is still a mystery.
Eileen made a cute, little scrappy quilt to celebrate her first blogaversary. Check it out here.



Tami is having a 'green' giveaway although the prizes are blue. She has a knit dishcloth, cotton dishtowel and some cloth napkins for giveaway.

My red hibiscus began blooming this week. I kept noticing other yards where the flowers were open, but mine just had buds until now. They are so huge and pretty!

Jeanne, I love your kitties and teacup stitcheries, but Aunt Millie is my favorite! And the hibiscus is beautiful; mine has only leaves, and it's about time to bring it inside......

Nice stiching you've done! I'm impressed on your wonderful hibiscus as well. And how many give aways.....

You do such great stitching! They are all beautiful, but I love the one of Aunt Millie. She reminds me of my sister who has 5 cats. The picture of the hibiscus is so pretty. I used to grow them, but where we live now, it is too shady for them to do well.Thanks for the links to the giveaways. I have chosen you for my favorite blogger this week, and I think I made a great choice!!

Those little cross-stitched kitties are so adorable. That is going to make a very lovely scissor case.
