Calendar Poodle SAL

Hi friends!

I have an update picture to share with you of my sampler. You can click on the on the picture to make it bigger.
I am now working on words I am putting above. I am over half done with that.
Can I promote The Cat Who books enough? I think NOT! 😻

Jim Qwilleran lives in Pickax, a small town 400 miles north of everywhere, and writes for a small newspaper. He stands tall and straight. He dates a librarian. His roommates are two abandoned cats that he adopted along the way, one of them quite remarkable. Qwilleran has a secret that he shares with no one—or hardly anyone. His male cat, Koko, has an uncanny intuition that can tell right from wrong and frequently sniffs out the evildoer... 

Retiring in Pickax, actress Thelma Thackeray has decided to start a film club and organize a fundraiser revue, starring Koko the cat. But Thelma's celebrated arrival takes an unpleasant turn when the strange circumstances of her twin brother's recent death seem suspicious to Jim Qwilleran. Qwill needs a helping paw in this case. But will Koko deign to take time from his stage debut?

What could be more purrfect for fans of the Cat Who series than an intimate look at the private lives of those extraordinary Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum—the most unlikely, most unusual, most delightful team in detective fiction!
In this charming collection of feline antics, you’ll discover why Jim Qwilleran considers Koko a veritable clone of T.S. Eliot’s Rum Tum Tugger, how Yum Yum was rescued from a burglar who is not above a spot of catnapping, and many more fascinating catly facts...
My stepdad Jim is doing fairly well with his chemo and radiation thank you for your prayers. Our friend Julie needs us to pray for her also. She has uterine cancer. She has a tentative date of October 9th for surgery. 💗

I am so thankful you stopped by today my friends. I thanked God for you today! God bless you!

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world Philippians 2:14-15

Stitching and praying,
