A No-Sneeze Cat & A Start I Didn't Need

I'm loving my cross stitching lately, can't you tell?!

This little finish is one kitty that I do love... normally I have terrible allergies when I'm within coo-ee of a feline, so this one suits me fine... not sure what I'm going to do with it, so I've just tucked it away safely for now. Cute, or cute?! At 2" x 2½" it's definitely sweet...
 

Now for the start I didn't need... seriously, "can someone tell me why I started this one?" 
 I went searching in the Overload on Friday for something to take to Patch group, something not Pfaff-y because I'm not very inspired at the moment... I really didn't need something new to work on... oh well, it's started now & will be a nice easy no-think piece, so it can go on the WIP & WISP pile!
 
Every square in the design area is stitched, so that will keep my needle busy ;)

It's almost time for CTTY again... at least this month I don't feel so bad that I'm not ready for it, but I'm still hoping to have something to add to the Giftie Box for August, even if I am a little late... will you join me?

~ Thanks For Stopping By ~

Hello Anthea,

You little kitty would make a sweet pincushion for a feline lover. Have fun with the frangipani cross stitch. I have one half finished somewhere, one of my girls was into frangipani's years ago.

Happy days.
Bev.

Cute little kitty cross stitch. Glad to hear your son is recovering well from his operation, he needs to keep it easy for a while, I guess it'll be hard to keep him calm, good luck with that...

Oh yes - just the kind of cat that we allow in our home too! He is very cute (and very small!). I can sort of join you in adding to the gift box this month. If making lots of tissue covers counts? It's my new 'go to' gift when I need something little. Want me to send you one?
