Kitten Update and a Finish

Good News!  All of the foster kitties have found their forever homes.  Daisy was placed in a home with a young boy who recently lost his adult cat.  It was a surprise gift from his dad and I know he will be greatly surprised.  Jordan (aka Moses) and Oliver (aka Dexter) were a adopted by a wonderful young couple who also lost their adult cat due to cardiac arrest.  Sometimes in this process, I don't see the connection with the kittens and the potential adoptive family but in this case I was pleasantly surprised.  The husband and wife sat on the floor and 1 cat went to each of them and cozied right up.  The connection was so evident that I knew they were a match.  She has sent me wonderful emails and pics since the adoption and told me the kittens are inseperable.  I am so happy they will be together in a loving home.




I spent the weekend doing some finishing.  I made 5 ornaments and 2 pillows.  The Ornaments I will post at a later date and the other pillow is for a swap which can't be revealed yet.  That being said, that leaves this tooth fairy pillow.  My mom had asked me to make this for a friends daughter because she saw the one I made for my niece.   It is a design by Lizzie Kate.  I added a small heart shaped felt pocket to hold the tooth and ultimately the token from the tooth fairy.  I hope she likes it.

In a recent trip to Michaels, looking for DMC thread that they didn't have, I found these packets of assorted trims in the clearance section.  They were 50% off and I got them for .75 cents each.  They are great for doing some finishing and I loved the colors.  Besides, who doesn't love a bargin.



Well, back to stitching!  I hope you all have a wonderful week. Happy Stitching!
