Big Eyes Kitty - 30 hour update

Hello everyone,

Well, despite having a very busy week spring cleaning the house I still managed to fit in my ten hours of stitching! Misty now has a bed to lie in and some fur around the outside of her head. I think I'm about on schedule for the 60-70 hours I estimated she would take. She is still a pleasure to stitch so I am going to stay with her for yet another 10 hours and work my way towards the centre of her face. Here are the 20 and 30 hour pictures:

In other news, my son had a fantastic week away with the school at Calshot Activities Center near Southampton. He came home exhausted having done climbing, skiing, cycling, archery, trawling, orienteering, a river study and video making, as well as various other team-based indoor and outdoor games. And all in just four days - phew! Unlike some children, he actually returned home wearing different clothes to those he went in and had showers whilst there! But a bath was still the first necessity that evening!

On the job front I didn't have any success. I was obviously disappointed but not surprised as the position applied for was full time and I could only offer part-time hours due to caring for my mum. It was a cheeky application, but if you don't try you don't get. I was, however, informed that my application was "very impressive" so I was pleased with that.

Hopefully I'll be back soon with another update and a cute kitty face appearing. Until then,

All the best and
Happy stitching :)

  1. Lovely stitching! Looks like you're about 1/2 way done.

  2. Great progress and fingers crossed something will come up in the job front!
