Nov and Dec Small Cross Stitches

I've been trying to get back into crafting.  I always feel better when I've got a project to work on.  Sometimes it's just knowing I have a project that I CAN work on is more important than actually working on the project.

Over the holiday season I wanted to do projects that didn't require a lot of concentration.

A few weeks before Thanksgiving I started Bent Creek's Thankful Quaker.

I used a piece of 18 count cream/antique white colored aida I had in my stash.  I also used DMC thread instead of the specialty threads listed on the chart.

I've no idea what to do with it, but it was a fun little seasonal chart to work on.

Being in the mood for whimsy, while I was visiting my mom over Christmas, I stitched this Grumpy Kitty.
Eventually I'll finish him into an ornament.

The chart is by Brooke's Books Publishing and can be found here for free.

This design was stitched on a scrap of blue grey 28ct evenweave I had in my stash.  Amazingly I left this design unaltered!

Don't you just love Grumpy Kitty?


  1. James needs that grumpy kitty! ;)

  2. Is the grumpy kitty his spirit cat?

  3. I would say so, although FSM is his deity
