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

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:))

It left just enough room for the cat to roam!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

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.

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!

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 :)
