Stitchery BOM

I have finished stitching blocks 1 and 2 of Bea's stitchery BOM. It's such a bummer that I have to wait until March for block 3. They were nice and quick and easy to do. I decided to stitch in blue to match some nice blue and brown Charleston fabrics I have that need using.



Yesterday Molly visited her cousin Sam. Sam lives in Ulverstone with my Mum and Dad. He appeared on my sister's doorstep a few years ago as a very sad and bedraggled little pussy cat. She already had two cats so Sam went to live with Mum and Dad. He is very spoilt and extremely affectionate, and has a purr that would put a lion to shame!

Sam is not very welcoming of other cats - poor Oliver once spent a weekend hiding under a recliner - but loves Molly!

One of his hobbies is playing the piano - he sometimes likes to practise in the middle of the night! He is especially good at rapid ascending and descending runs.

Like most cats another favourite pastime is sleeping in a comfy chair. Here he is with one of Mums patchwork cushions. Such a hard life! The housework beckons so until next time happy stitching.


  1. i love your stitcheries - almost as much as i love that cat. check out that tongue in the last photo - how cute is that.

    we have a cat, georgie, who we saved from the gas chamber. i think she has issues as she can sit next to you, but never really on you. it's a shame as i love affectionate cats. she has lots of other issues too - fear of the great outdoors, fear of the great indoors! i think she may have been tortured before we got her. she's a bit better now but still very scared.

  2. That is the cutest photo of the cat and dog. I love your stitchery that you've done.

  3. Way to go with the stitcheries, I'm getting there...your babies are very spoilt I think...

  9. Christine, that cat is stunning and I love the pic where she "kisses" Molly

    Think I have to post a photo of my beauties too


  10. How cute are Sam and Molly together! They must both be so beautifully natured to have taken to each other like that!

  11. Hi Christine,
    I've only just discovered your blog - Where have I been - I really love your stitcheries. Your blog is very easy on the eye - the photos are lovely. I'll be visiting often.

  12. I love the stitcheries also and think I might do them for my 2008 challenge from my quilt guild. I don't think I can get the January one though. Did you happen to download it? Could you send it to me? I'd really appreciate it. I enjoy your pet pictures also. Ruth

  13. I'm also doing my Bluework BOM in blue. I haven't started Block 2 yet but will be very soon. I am really enjoying it and I'm thinking of making two sets, the other in red.

  14. The cat looks so very much like our baby Darwin...there is nothing like cats to look comfortable...I have had to give up the head of my side of the bed to him over the last few weeks...we'll see how long it lasts. When I go to bed I have to really hurry as he comes running and jumps up almost before I have a chance to move the pillow...they do get what they want most of the time, don't they...


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate your thoughts.
