A two part Friday Frolics post.....

Okay, now as I forgot to post for FF last Friday night (13th May) due to the intensive freelance work I was doing - you can read about it on my Kitten Stitching blog - I have decided that this week's FF post will be a two parter. So, here goes.....

Part One: Friday 13th May:

So, first of all I had a Happy Dance at my new stitching group with MelodyHelenChristine and Julia (no blog).  I will post all of the fun of the day on my main blog, Kitten Stitching, when I get the chance.

I finished my second Nordic ornament from PS Book #191 for the Christmas Ornie SAL May theme of "Reindeer".

Isn't he a proud, handsome fellow?

He is a companion piece to the April theme of "Ornament".

So, at a loose end (I know, I know, how could that be with all of my UFOs?????), I downloaded this pretty pattern from Lynne B of Happiness is Cross Stitch.  If you don't know Lynne's blog, it is well worth checking it out - she is very generous with her freebies and if you are a cat lover, she has lots of cat designs.  "All you need is love" is her latest design, not a freebie but at $5 was a bargain, I thought, especially as it was instant download and I have now stitched two of them (you will have to check out Kitten Stitching in a few days to see them both stitched up.)

This, of course, is Milo.

... and lastly, I got up to make a cup of tea when I was reading this very gripping thriller but obviously Furio didn't find it all that gripping!

So, that was Part One, now for Part Two.

Part Two: Friday 20th May:

This past Friday, for FF and for FNSI (hosted by the wonderful Wendy), I picked up this lovely design.

Bet you can't guess why I love this piece????? Silly me, of course you can because there are my two kitty cats, Milo and Furio in the window! How could I resist?

This is a design which I bought on eBay, it is a Bayview Publication but no indication of the designer.

Anyway, that is two weeks of Friday Frolics for me and now it is Wednesday morning so I am thinking about my next FF selection.

Have a great day everyone, I am off to Aqua aerobics, then my dear friend Marie is going to teach me to make Polish pirogi this morning and then this afternoon, my next lot of freelance work should have appeared in my inbox so it will be back to the grindstone for me - lol! - and tonight is book club - so a very full, busy but enjoyable day ahead.

hugs, Kaye

Great stitching Kaye.

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

Gosh, you have been busy! The cat pieces look great. How nice that you don't have to re-colour the cats in the window design.

Wonderful new starts! I really like Too Cold To Go Outside, can't wait to see more of it :)

Brigitte said...

A great catch-up post, Kaye. These ornament finishes look gorgeous. And no, I could never guess why you started the new projects that you did, lol.
Now, the only thing that is missing here is the title of the gripping thriller :)))

Rachel said...

Your Christmas designs are lovely. Aww....Furio is a cutie :)

I love Lynn's blog...she has lots of cute patterns.

Good luck with your projects and work :)

Great catch up post!! I really wish I could remember to take photos of my stitching before I start on a Friday night... I just sit down and start stitching - think I will have to set a reminder for 7pm on my phone!!
