Dancing with the Cat update and mini-Feeling Better to date.

I've been working pretty steadily on Dancing with the Cat since my last post, though I don't get near as much stitching time in as I think I should, since I am retired and imagine that my days will be filled with stitching.  I can't blame it on doing too much housework, but can say that family, friends, way too much time on the computer with forums and silly computer games (I've become addicted to Candy Crush saga and a few word games on my iPad) are interfering. Still I managed to complete the top half of page 3 with some overflow stitching on page 4.  When I next pick this up I am pretty sure I will be able to start stitching the lovely bow in the ballerina's hair.  I have enjoyed stitching the rocky background as I love the texture the detail gives it, but I am eager to start on the little girl and some different colors.

Next up is Mini Feeling Better by Maxine Gadd.  This was a RAK I received last year after I had suffered a pretty nasty fall so it is kind of special besides being lots of fun to stitch. I am tent stitching 2 over 1 on 28 ct jobelan or laguna (I am so bad at remembering).  Love the coverage!  Have a Hardanger SAL to catch up with and then some time on this one!  This is where I stopped the last time I was working on it.

Thanks for looking
