In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a cat lover. Even worse, I’m the kind of girl that shouts “Hey kitty-kitty” and tries to make friends with every cat in sight… Anyway, here are some of my newest cat designs!

Just for the fun of it – a gif showing how the Vault dwellers wedding project was made 🙂
I hope that next Wednesday I will happily write a post on completing my Vault Couple project. While as for now I can only post another photo of my progress, which is quite plausible, because the couple is almost stitched. Hopefully the date and text won’t give as much trouble.
Skipped several days this week and did not work on my Vault boy and girl project. But then – uh-oh! – I realised that the deadline is inevitable and tried to speed up a little. Here is my current progress:

I’m constantly moving on with the project for my sister’s wedding and still hope to make it on time. Remember last week I started out only with a marked canvas? Here is the most recent photo:

I am a slow stitcher, and to tell you the truth, I haven’t stitched most of the patterns I designed. That’s why it is always a pleasure to see how these virtual patterns become real projects in skilled hands. Today I want to share a picture of my Fish Pond pattern, stitched by Alyssa from Brownie’s Chair.

As for my own stitching, I had to stop working on Cats in the Kitchen (again!). It dawned at me that I should make something for my half-sister Katie’s wedding, so I made a pattern, bought all the supplies and have been stitching like crazy to make it on time.
It started out with a grid…

On my holidays I love going to the seaside! I love the feeling of sand under my feet, the bright colors, the seashells and even the salty smell (especially that). So here are three patterns that try to capture that mood, three, because stopping at one was practically impossible 🙂
A Day at the Sea (versions 1, 2, and 3)
All three patterns are available in my Etsy shop ($3.99 each): https://www.etsy.com/shop/HappyStitchNet
A simple lady in blue adapted from the same vintage pictures as the previous girl in pink. As it usually happens with vintage pictures, it’s all beautiful and sweet. Best stitched on cream or ecru canvas 🙂

Punk project challenge (week two, since I have effectively overslept the previous one) is to make a project using my favorite colors. And for me nothing represents my favorite color – blue – than the beautiful Mediterranean doors, deep blue on perfectly white walls. So today I made a big pattern using three images of such doors.
The pattern, as usual, is completely free to download (look for the link below the image).
Three blue doors cross stitch patterns
Pattern size: 327 x 136 stitches, 27 colors (approx. 46 x 19 cm on #18 canvas)
