I finished the stitching of the cat needlepoint in Middle School when I was about 12 years old. I'm turning 54 this year - you can do the math on that one, ha ha
The kit was given to me by grandfather for Christmas about a month after he passed away. I always wanted him to paint me a cat portrait, but he found it very difficult as he mostly painted landscapes.
I am so happy with how sweet it turned out.
I also had the Ridgewood Needlepoint Shop block this needlepoint that my mother, Cathy, finished before she died sometime before she died. So that's been more than 25 years now.

On Monday we woke up to a lovely spring snow it was completely melted by sundown.
I've been doing a little house construction while watching House of Cards. I'm so looking forward to teaching a Liberated House workshop in Texas next month. I forgot how fun these were to make.Diane, of Butterfly Threads has published her first book. Congratulations Diane; it is fabulous! She sent me a copy and a cute mug rug in preparation of participating in her blog hop. I have the lucky spot of being the Caboose on the fun train.
