Finally, another blog update. I have made some progress with finishing bears and have one photo as a preview. Still so much to do and time is running out.
This is my little Thread Keeper, a tiny 2.5" bear, I am so happy with how she has turned out.
A couple of weeks ago I was the lucky winner of a blog giveaway on and today my parcel arrived. A lovely cross stitch pattern, silk thread and a little pincushion. It was a lovely surprise and really made my day special.
Yesterday Leila got stuck up a tree, Wendy and I went to the post office and when we got back home my Dad greeted me at the door with a panicked expression. She had got high up in the tree and couldn't get down (she has never climbed a tree before). I had to get the ladder out and shove her with a broom until she crawled/ fell low enough for me to grab her and then she fell out the lower part of the tree anyway. Poor little kitty has shredded her claws and one of them has been pulled out totally, she is okay otherwise but I just hope her claw grows back.
