Build a Seam Week 13

I'm learning how to "Crazy Quilt"...I love hand embroidery and the fun this is bringing to me is fantastic....On this particular group I am on, they have a new stitch every week for each member to create something different..Well, I'm a newbie so just learning the stitch plus adding a bit of me into it has been a great experience..
Week 13 is the Herringbone Mirrored..
I used #5 DMC for the herringbone stitch, then I looped it using regular 6 ply floss adding a pearl between each stitch..I know it's not much but it's a start!!

Introducing "Noel"

Noel is our new little kitty...She was born November 5th and came to our home Christmas Day..She's an interesting color for sure but I'm kind of a person who loves unique and interesting things..She's a piece of art ...Noel is into everything and I mean everything, yet she's as sweet as she could be. She's eating wonderfully and using her kitty box perfectly - no accidents since arriving home thank goodness. We, meaning Lee and myself, are already in love with this baby and she is fitting in as though she's been here forever.
