PIF and Kitten pics

A while back, Chris at Tot Hill Farm Stitches passed this chart along to me.  I decided to try something different with it.  I stitched it on Grape Ice 30ct linen with white Threadworx thread.  It was the first time I used this fiber and it has a pretty sheen to it.  I plan to make this into a needle book.  Stay tuned.  Now that I am done with the chart I would like to pass it on.  If you are interested please leave a comment saying so.  If more than one person wants it I will draw a name on Sunday Aug 7th.

As promised,  here are pics of the kittens.  The first pic is when they were delivered to us at 3 days old.  The following pics were taken today.  They are now 7 days old and are starting to open their eyes.

 




As you can see, they sleep alot right now.  When they aren't sleeping they are eating.  Phoebe is doing well and is starting to look a little less ragged.  Thanks for visiting and as always, Happy Stitching!

What precious babies! Takes me back to when my KiKi would have kittens. There is absolutely nothing sweeter... well, ok, maybe my own babies, but that's it! :) I love your white on blue. I would never have thought to do that and it's beautiful! I'll pass on a chance for the chart right now. I have *so* many I want to stitch at the moment! LOL!

Tiny, precious kittens. Brings back quite a few memories. Your version on Grape Ice is very pretty. Please include my name in your drawing. Thank you very much.

My eyes have swollen shut just looking at the kittens. I know I could not resit holding them and I am sad to say that would result in my allergies kicking in. They are so pretty.Love the one laying with his belly up.That is a happy cat!

Mouse said...

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Please put my name in the draw for the chart and a kitten. Ooops just the chart!
I love the colours you've chosen, very fresh.

Your kitties remind me of this:

Have you seen this design before, I stitched it two years ago but haven't framed it yet (blush)

Those kittens are so precious! I'm so glad that they have you looking after them as well as Phoebe. It's a very worthy cause that you have undertaken.
