Hot off the Press and some new Stash

This fun freebie by Stitchy Kitty was my choice for the freebie SAL over at the Needle and Thread board during the weekend. I'm going to give it to a kitty mad friend for Christmas, so I'll look around for some kitty fabric to make it into a tuck pillow or something like that.

Stitched on 32ct jobelan, using DMC threads. (If anyone is interested in the pattern, its free by just joining the Stitchy Kitty Yahoo group)

After an eventful day at work yesterday (one jammed up photocopier, one computer sent off to have a virus removed, one client toilet needing the plumber called in, and the garage door not working!!) I arrived home to find a lovely parcel of new stash waiting for me from Needlecraft Corner. I got several charts - Fish City, Bless Baby Sampler, Jolly Old Elf, a Mill Hill Angel Charmed Mitten kit, 5 of the new Gentle Art sampler threads ( liberty, bayberry, geranium, freedom, lexington green) and several Weeks Dye Works threads to add to my almost complete collection. So now I'm just waiting on my recent order to Silkweavers to arrive :)

Too cute. Please post a photo when it is finished. I don't think I have come across this freebie before!

Meow looks great. I bought all the floss for it a few weeks ago but, haven't touched it since I can't find a piece of fabric I'd like to do it on in my stash. :} Hopefully I'll come across one soon.

That's a really cute freebie, Katrina! Yours looks lovely :)

You got some great stash there - I succumbed to an order at SB&B this morning for a few charts. Nothing like getting stash parcels in the post!
