~*It Is Monday... already?*~

Hello Dear Friends! It is shocking to me that it is already Monday! Where did the weekend go? We were having so much fun! Saturday was the monthly hooking at Judy Cripps' place. (It was GREAT... as usual. :) Lots more showed up to hook this month than did last month. My sweet SIL, Robin, was able to make it this time, and so were Sher and JoJo. It is always nice to see such happy hookers spending the day together!) Then yesterday was our big, family birthday bash. (We had over 30 here for food, fun, and go karting. It was a wonderful time! I'll share more about this later.) PLUS, this weekend was an online stitching retreat for one of the online, cross stitch groups I'm lucky to be a part of AND an anniversary party for another online group. (I didn't get to spend much time socializing with them because of all the other happenings of the weekend... but aren't our online friends just AWESOME?!)

I did receive an email this weekend sharing this darling ditty... :) ...

This awesome ditty was hooked by Rebecca. The pattern is the freebie ~*Halloween Cat*~. It is GREAT too! I just love the variegated wool used for the kitty body. Makes me think of my own lil' Sarah kitty. (she is black, gray, and kinda tort-like) Rebecca offers many of her fine wares for sale on Ebay with the seller id Goodwool. She is also a member of The Primitive Rug Hookers group (on Ebay). Have you searched the groups goodies lately? Click HERE or do a search with the letter PRHG to see 'em all. It is a fun search to do!

Well, I must get back to stitching. My Momma's birthday is Friday and I only have her present about half stitched. I'll show you all when I'm finished so you can see.

Wishing you all warm smiles,



  1. Betty - That is an adorable kitty - I somehow missed that freebie! Too cute! Stay cool out there!

  2. Betty~ your kitties are popping up all over and this one looks super! Happy Birthday to your Mom!!

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend! Nice Halloween Cat there! Thanks for sharing the finished freebies!
    Happy Birthday to Mom!!!

  4. Betty, it was so nice to see you and Robin at Judy's. I always have so much fun there and it's inspiring to see everyone's rugs. But I'm still hunting for that Halloween pattern without any luck. But for today, I've promised myself to get OFF the computer and get some other stuff done. I get too sleepy after an hour or so of searching on line.

    Many happy birthday wishes to your mother! Do you know if she has any special plans for her celebration?

  5. Love this one. I's amazing how many different ways this kitty can be made and all of them cute as can be. Great design Betty.
