Finito

The Christmas Cat Tree is finished.   This I rather like so see more of these, but maybe not this year.
Stash provided the little beads for the candles and now this will rest in the pile to be constructed closer to C Day.
Thank you for all the good wishes for the DBEM.  She tells me she feels much better than yesterday:-)
I'm wondering if charity shops would sell stitched Christmas ornaments.   Unlike the DBEM I will not be knitting sweaters for toddlers when I retire but I would be happy to stitch small items like ornaments, book markers etc.  Any suggestions?

  2. Pleased to read that DBEM says she is feeling better. A lovely finish. I like the use of beads rather than cross stitches.

  3. What about lavender sachets Margaret. You could stitch the front and use pretty fabric for the backing. They're good for drawers or you can add a loop for hanging in a wardrobe.

  4. Lovely finish and the beads do look good. I am sure that charity shops would like the ornaments to sell. Or you could donate to an old people's home or children's hospital ward?

  5. The beads were an excellent idea - they look great. Delightful finish (all of this group of ornament designs is adorable, IMO). Sorry your mom wasn't feeling well, but glad she's feeling better today.

    Donating to a hospital would be nice.
