Cattitude horoscopes: Taurus


I hope you  had a beautiful weekend. It´s the second half of April, it´s time for the sign of Taurus. This sign (the second sign of Zodiac) is ruled by Venus. Taurus belongs to the Earth element. Is there someone born in this sign?

Have a nice evening!

Send a Smile Exchange - new dates!!

Hello ladies!
Sorry for taking a while to update on the group exchange (especially to Pretti whom I haven't replied yet), I had a couple of hard weeks (baby teething =/) and by the end of the end I'm just too tired to think about anything.

Everyone is welcome to join our exchange, you just need to be (or become) a group member and there's no problem if you haven't posted anything on the group for a while... maybe now you'll have something to make you want to post more often ;)

Preeti asked for a longer deadline, until mid July or even the end of the month... I'm all in favor, I just worry if August will be a month for others to go on vacation =/ So, asking to everyone who already signed up, would you be ok with a new date? Posting until July 31th?
If you're going on vacation, you can post before, no problem! I just worry if everyone will be around in August, to get their parcel on the mailbox. Please, comment about this here!! Thank you ladies :)

If we set a longer date to post, I'll set a longer date to sign in as well. My suggestion is below.

Theme: Free
Itens: At least 5 itens + 1 handmade - Margaret Sherry design, always!!!
Sign up: until May 31th
Post: until July 31st

Nia (ok)
Noni (ok)
Angel (sooner)
Judith (Musicwoman) (ok)
Pretti (ok)
Olimpia (ok)

Calendar Cats: April

Hello everyone!

I was really bad blogger on this blog the last year. It´s time to publish all hold-overs. I wrote a list and I continue with this design. Here is my April cat from my personal Project 2014 :-).

new group exchange :)

Hello ladies :)

I was giving some time for more stitchers to join our conversation here but looks like everyone has been pretty busy and still working on last year's SALs. So, I won't overwhelm you more, let's wait a bit to star new project as a group. Of course, everyone should continue to stitch everything you'd like, we all will love to watch it here :)

Let's move on to the group exchange, what about...

'Send a Smile Exchange'
... sounds fun? :)
Free theme, just a package with fun goodies that any stitcher would like to receive ;) At least five itens and one handmade - off course, that's always the star on our exchanges :)

As always, this is a group exchange, only for members. If you want to join, sign in here, leave a comment on this post.

Theme: Free
Sign up: until April 20th
Post: until June 1st


SAL #5 Spring Bouquet completed :)

Finally, I successfully completed my SAL#5 Spring Bouquet :)
I know I am shamelessly late to post but I guess it is just in time for spring !!

I enjoyed stitching for this SAL and look forward to next one:)

Have a nice day!

2015 stitching plans

Hello everyone! :)

I'm still waiting for more updates on our SALs from last year. If you haven't read it yet, please, check this post here and let us know how you're going on your projects too :)

Those who have finished it all, are waiting for new projects and ideas to stitch so... let's brainstorm :D

1. Debbie is going to stitch "Coffee and Cuddles" and suggested it could be an idea for a SAL too! (posted here) Anyone up for it? :) I know the pattern is on the book 'The best of Margaret Sherry' and also on an old Cross Stitcher magazine (I will have to check the issue).

2. Any more suggestions for a SAL?

3. How about an exchange? We haven't done any in a long while! Maybe we could make a 'happy exchange', nothing about a theme, just some fun stitching and goodies any stitcher would like to receive :)

4. More ideas? Share! Let us know ;)

SAL #7 Bags of Fun

I finished my stitch-along just before Christmas last year and then subsequently lost my post!

I am soon going to start another Margaret Sherry project, so I thought I had better post my finished SAL.

Here is a photo of my WIP:

And here is the finished piece:

I loved working on this project so much, even the backstitch was a joy. I plan to frame it sometime during the year.

This will be my next Margaret Sherry project. As you can see it is similar to bags of fun. I just need to buy some new material and get my threads out. I have a friend who I think will love it!

Happy stitching!
