Embroidery Journal Project 2012 January

                                       Cat in the Garden

I have joined this project, introduced by The Floss Box, and enjoyed the first embroidery.
It's a 6x4 (postcard) piece and tells several things about me:
1. As I've stitched and hoarded for about 65 years I have lots of pieces that hang about waiting to become something - ie the overstitched cross stich in the centre.
2. I usually have plenty of stash in matching colours, with a variety of textures, threads, yarns, buttons, etc.
    to make an embroidery - ie the fabrics, edging textured wool, small crochet flowers, and mini and cat buttons
So this month it's just gather up a few things and stitch ...
3. We have a Ginger Tom, with attitude, who enjoys sitting around - there he is!

Enough for the first project - maybe next month I'll do something entirely new (I doubt it!)


  1. I like this idea, it is very me...just gather up and sew...yes!

    I love what you have done with your incomplete cross stitch.

  2. I've seen your beautiful work in many different spots...and am so happy to see you're doing the embroidery journal project as well.

    What a pleasure it will be to see what you create this year. Your embroidery is lovely...and will be enjoyable to see each month.

  3. Lovely little project! I like all the materials you included! Thanks for joining in.
