It’s Time!

I usually retire my Padres purse after baseball season ends. It was such a great season for our San Diego Padres, that I wasn’t ready to do it that soon! Plus…

I had tickets to an Elton John concert…and why did I wait till he was almost ready to retire to go and see him? Well it was at Petco Park, home of the Padres and couldn’t bring any bags in.

And then I went to see Hamilton, so that delayed the changeover. But today I will ceremoniously change them. I have bought a new wallet to go with the colors and I have a darling little change purse with cats on it. Go figure?!? It was a gift from a dear friend that she bought for me in England.

This is a picture of AlleyCat that was take years ago with her table surfing around all the while not taking her eyes off the turkey. I laugh a little every time I see it. Speaking of Thanksgiving, I hope you all had a great one. I did as I stayed home (by my choice) and spent the day with the cats, stitching and eating turkey stuff! I finished 2 small pieces, another travel tag and an ornament. I will save pictures of them for another day.

Speaking of cats, here they are keeping me company. I do love their company and their warmth, but I have done a fair amount of reverse stitching because of too much black cat hair in my stitching!

I promise not to wait so long between posts, especially since I am headed to M’s Canvashouse this week for a class with the Embellishment Squad and Suzanne, Tony and Meredith. So I’m sure I will have plenty to talk about!

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Your posts always brighten my day, here in South Africa where cats are abundant but needlepoint is very thin on the ground! Have a wonderful festive season with lots of furry purrs

  2. Thanks for the photos.
    I’m sure the Elton concert was great. I saw him on his joint tour with Billy Joel many years ago. A friend had tickets and wanted someone else to drive to the Meadowlands stadium in NJ. Yes, a football stadium and we were in the 3rd row just off the right side of the stage.
    Enjoyed the kitty update as usual.
