Frosty Hopes ...

Hi all, well, I am back from Byron Bay (that is why there was no Friday Frolics for me last weekend) - if you want to read all about my trip up north for a wedding, just click here.

Anyway, to get to the business at hand - lol! - this Friday for my frolicking, I went to my Girl's Nest and randomly put my hand on this WIP - Just Nan's "Frosty Hopes".

Here is the before pic:


The After FF pic - look Furio has snuck in somehow!


"Frosty Hopes" is a companion piece to "High Hopes", which I stitched in 2004 - oh, my goodness, that means I have had this piece in my UFO pile for 12 years now - Bad Kaye!


I personalised this piece by stitching my Cameo tortoiseshell cat, Coco, and changing the phrase from "High Hopes grow here" to "My cat Coco lives here".  So, I will personalise this new piece as well, adding the phrase "My cat Furio lives here".

I am going to have to look for a third similar design, so that I can stitch one for Milo.  I just looked at the Just Nan website and couldn't see anything suitable so if anyone has any good suggestions, I would be most grateful.

I am continuing to stitch on it over the weekend, so watch out for an update on Monday morning.

That's all from me for now, 

Enjoy your frolicking, 

hugs, Kaye

  1. So cute! I love the way you have personalized it too:) I'm afraid I can't help you with suggestions for cat charts since I only look for doggy charts lol! Don't we just love our furbabies:))

  2. It left just enough room for the cat to roam!

  3. There's a mission for us! Find another cat chart. I will have a rummage through my Just Nan collection
    These make a great pair already.

  4. Just a thought, The Snowflower Diaries latest release has a cat in it!

    I love the charts you have stitched, and such a lovely idea to add your furbabies!

  5. I have to give my WIPs numbers and then use the Random Number generator to pick one for the Friday nights. I' always on a loss because I have so many choices and then just continue on what I stitched before. Nice picture of Furio :)
