Stitches and Fur!!!!

Hello World,
I would like to take this time to introduce the newest member of my family
Chase!
He used to belong to my SIL until his mouth had an unfortunate meeting
with her prized heals.
Her Loss...My Happiness!





In stitching news this is one of the two projects that I have going at the present time.
This is Margaret Sherry's "Machanic Dog".  I was having fun with it until I got to the backstitching.
This is turning out to be a BIG PITA!!!!!!!
I finally got tired and gave in to the voice that was calling me to start this...
Margaret Sherry's "Fishing Cat"
What you see here is my progress over the last two nights.
A very dear lady in the Counted Cross Stitch yahoo group
started the 100 Stitch Challange.  It says that you must stitch at least 100
stitches a night for 1 month, at the end of which you get to look back at what you have done.
last night I got 140 stitches in on Mr. Kitty here.

Glad you have a new addition. That first piece is so cute, must be for a mechanic.

Congratulations on Chase! He is so adorable. Your stitching is beautiful. I think I will try do the challenge too. I havent done much stitching this past month.

Margaret Sherry always has crazy backstitching! It's enough to drive one batty. They look so good when they are done though...
Keep up the fight :)
