Welcome Merlin

We have a new addition to the cat family. He is just beautiful, even though his blue eyes are a little crossed.

I wondered why he kept hanging around here.  My next door neighbor told me he had been abandoned for the SECOND TIME by neighbors who claimed they couldn't catch him before moving away. HUH? This is one of the sweetest cats I have ever known. He is so affectionate. He runs to meet me every time I go outside. If I sit outside at the table he either lays on my feet or lays right in front of me on the table.

I would hate to tell you what I would like to do to people who abandon animals. It just kills me.

So now I have four cats. Three outside with heated houses (Puffy, Groupie and Merlin). All were abandoned. And of course Kilmouski he doesn't go outside.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday. Wishing all my Followers a Very Happy 2015!

The four Month Mark... Petit Point Carpet Progress

 I usually don't post the progress pictures until around the 18th of the month. I finished the interior of the carpet this morning and had to take it off the frame to turn it around. Once I get it back on, most of what I have stitched will be rolled up on the bars again. 

Now... off to the borders. That wider one looks like it is going to be a nightmare. I am glad I didn't start there. I think I would have thrown the whole thing out the window if I had tried to teach myself how to do this from there..

This is a big carpet. Finished it is 11 X 8 1/2 inches.
