I have finally finished my We're All Mad Here cross-stitch. I bought this pattern on Etsy. I love the wide-eyed crazy of this cat. I found it difficult to stitch on the black aida of course. I have poor vision anyway but this was a real challenge. I usually stitch in hand but this required me to use a hoop. I kept a white flour sack towel on my lap while I stitched but found that I really needed to have natural light. I had to look through the stitches to be able to stitch properly. If you look closely at the smile below you can see how the black stitches really make the smile standout versus just leaving the background fabric. I admit, I was tempted to just leave it and be finished!

Keeping up with the Saturday Sampler.
This is a quilt that Red asked for years and years ago. I made a mistake when I started cutting the appliqued circles in quarters so it has been in timeout for a long time! I started working on it on day when my DH was using my cutting table and my ironing table for his project. This was at hand and so I worked on it. I think it needs borders to make it a little larger and then I'll quilt it.
And finally this is a quilt kit that I've had for a very long time. When the kit was packaged they didnt take into account how one of the fabrics ran so I replaced it with this dark plank fabric. I think I'll add one more border before calling it finished.
