I had last week off work and managed to get Zenia about halfway.

At the rate I'm going and since the over 1 skin is done, I'm hoping to be pretty close to a finish by the end of the week.

Finish! and a new start.

Halloween Cat is finished!  Yay!

Instead of picking up on of my WIPs which are pretty much all BAPs, I decided to stick with something smaller.

This is Nora Corbett's Zenia.  I'm stitching it as charted on Colour Cascades Fabric in Black Holded Sun on 32 ct Jobelan.  It's my first time stitching on Jobelan but I think I really like it.  

Here's my progress as of this morning.  The picture that came with the chart shows beads that are way more red than the beads listed in the materials but these do have a little bit of red in them so I left them.

Another Halloween Cat update

I'm hoping this is the last Halloween Cat update.

Last night, I finished the little cat on the left and the center one.

That bit cat just reminds me so much of one of mine.

When we were trying to pick names for him, my son decided to call him Oreo.  I wanted to call him Cricket since he was kind of a bouncy baby.  But Oreo it was.  Now, it kind of fits him.  He's got a nice soft light grey tummy.

Halloween Cat

Last weekend,  I did a little stitching on Halloween Cat

I'm still not very happy with the coverage of the black but I'm not going to frog it now.

I also did lots of cuddling with my four legged boys
