Hey everyone! Hope all is well.
My YOTA sal UFO piece is coming along nicely. Have more of the back stitching done. Still working with the #4 Kreinik braid for the back stitching. Having fun on deciding which colors to use. The YOTA sal is open to anyone and the link is on my right side bar. Pull out some of those buried UFO and use the sal to get to work!    Joan Elliott's A Wizards View
     After. Have a lot of the back stitching done on his cloak. Using the couching method with the gold Kreinik on his gown. Seems to show up better than using a back stitch.
Having fun with biscornu's! 

 I have an assembly line going with 4 different colros of Kreinik #4 braid.
 I have joined a blog SAL with Country Cottage Needleworks. The tab is in my header if you wish to join or take a look through their blog. I joined due to the new Forest designs coming out and wanted to join the SAL for this series.This weekend was the WIP-IT SAL for any CCN design. I have several CCN patterns in my stash and I chose this one to work on. Changed the fabric color to 36 count, blue hand dyed fabric. Changed threads to DMC variations and regular DMC floss/threads.
 Here is my progress for the weekend.
 My Brooke's Books Spirit Angel WIP. 14 count plastic canvas, DMC threads and Kreinik silver ombre metallic. Have the skirt done.
 This is another UFO piece. Stitching this one in the BB Brooke's Books interactive group UFO SAL.

Well. One of the reasons my stitching was limited this weekend was that my SIL and her husband came over, saturday and sunday, so my DH could repair their vehicle. SIL's husband helped so I was able to stay in and visit with SIL. She brought with her two abandoned kittens. The back story is that she has a kitty cat door for her cats to run in and out of the house. Saves on litter box cleaning. However, the full food dish also attracts cats that are not SIL's. Well, when they were moving a daybed, from one room to another, these two little guys popped their heads out from under the bed and said "hello, here we are!"
This is the second time kittens have been "dumped" in the house by a stray momma kitty.
 SIL bought kitten supplement formula and a tIny bottle for feeding the kittens. She has been feeding them for two weeks and they look like little butterballs! There eyes have not turned color yet and are still blue. We figure they are about 3 1/2 weeks old. So meet Big Bear and Ginger. They are still too small to tell if they are boys are girls. Another few weeks.
Happy stitching!
