Cutie Pin

Hi friends! Isn't this sweet?
Yes, this is the second time I have stitched up this adorable kitten. Last time for Carolien. This time for my Mom.
This is a Wichelt freebie you can find RIGHT HERE . I stitched this two over two with DMC on 32ct Wedgewood Blue lugana.

I used silk ribbon for Cutie's bow and to edge the pin. We shall see if my mom wears this pin. Not sure. I am thinking she will since she has become a "crazy cat lady". I am giving her this for Mother's Day.

I have planted my cilantro and basil outside. I am using these 2 liter soda bottles to protect them and keep them growing. We won't be frost free for at least 3 more weeks.
I am doing the finishing on a small stitched gift I am making for another friend. ;)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends!
Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Pretty little pin! Love the tiny sweet little bow. I know that took some time to tie! Great idea of using the plastic bottles on your herb plants. Our temp today was 95!
love Annette

Lovely little gifts Vickie and good idea with the frost covering. We've lost a few things this last week or so as the weather reverted to winter. Our neighbour had a stunning magnolia in bloom and the flowers all turned brown overnight.

Yay, this little freebie is definitely one of my favorites. I'm a crazy cat lady too though. :b

I use milk crates for my plants haha. I think we're mostly done with frosts but it still dips down at night. Grow, garden, grow! :D
