Olympic finishes and cat photos

Now wasn't the Olympics just a wonderful venue for sitting and stitching!!!  I love to watch the Olympics both the summer and the winter games.  I do not like all the events but there is enough on the television on the various channels that you are bound to find some event you like.

Fair Charlotte is stitched - this is a workshop and design by Sherri Jones of Patrick Woods.  Now all I have to do is do the finishing! 
 This is a closeup of Sweet Charlotte, stitched mostly over one except for the skirt.
 Here is a photo of the sleigh
 I finally sat down and finished the necklace that I did as a 'pilot' class with Marie Campbell.  I still have to finish the embellished loop that hangs on the necklace.  Another time.


So I just love hanging around grocery bags!!!
 Now these two are not the buddies that they are portraying here.  Mars has no idea that Jasimine is laying beside him!!  Mars is out cold!
 Mars protecting my magazines - he is the only male in the house other than my husband!!
There is something to be said about dirty laundry - oh so comfy!!
For the rest of this month I will be working on Lounging Hare - another of Sherri Jones's pieces, this will be stitched while watching the Paralympics.  Goal is have this piece stitched by the end of the month.

Also, will try to work a bit on Quaker Christmas now that I have found the threads!!!

Have a great day everyone  ------------ Thank you for stopping by ------------------  Roberta

Beautiful stitching Roberta, I love the details on your class piece. Also your beaded necklace is stunning.
Your sweet kitties look so comfortable. They know the perfect places to snuggle down.
