Starr of Mine and winner

Happy Friday!!

I finally finished "Starr Of Mine"
Half way through stitching this I seen the TV series "The Bachelor" Why??????????????

By Little House Needleworks in TGoS

Stitched on 32ct unknown scrap of blue.

I picked a winner this morning for a beaded FOB

Congrats!! Sue I don't think I have your addy, so could you please email me.

Does this box look a little over stuffed????

She is my box kitty, no matter how small it is.

I will update a progress kitchen photo soon. The plaster guy has been here all day yesterday and today, it's looking good. I have to paint when it gets dry and then the cabinets go in, yay!!!

It's hard roughing it!!

The appliances are here in the garage. We have the flooring picked out and ordered. We still have to go shopping this weekend for paint, sink and back splash. I get a new table set, because the one I have doesn't match the cabinets, For your info I didn't plan that, lol

o.k. yes! I did.

I will leave you with a photo of me and my precious Grand sweetie pie

Have a super duper weekend!!!!!!

Tammy said...

Oops, I forgot to tell you that a long time ago, I had a long hair calico female kitty (Henrietta/Henry). Aren't they great. Yours is beautiful!

Ranae, that's such a GREAT photo of you and your sweetie. :D And I love your stitching, too!

Lindsay said...

Congratulations on the finish. Here was me thinking that I was only person that has a cat that insists all cardboard boxes are her's for sitting in/on

Love the pic of you two..precious...and lastly...I popped your pattern in the mail today! Keep an eye out for it! :)

Love the saying on your "beautiful in blue" finish. Congrats to Sue, she chose the same fob I loved. Your daughter is adorable, great shot of the two of you. The "cat in the box" reminds me of my cats...yes, plural, I have 3 of those furry critters. They love boxes also and newspaper and magazines......they crack me up, it makes you wonder how they fit their whole body in such a tiny space and think it is actually comfortable!!!!

Deb said...

Great finish Ranae. That fabric is just a perfect choice for it. Sue is a lucky girl to receive that fob. And what a sweet g'daughter you have. Great picture of the both of you!!

Siobhan said...

Congratulations on the finish! It's adorable.

It sounds like the redo is coming along nicely. I hope you're taking advantage of the chaos and ordering in take away so that you have extra time for stitching! ;)

Lovely pic of you and your granddaughter. She's too cute. Enjoy your long weekend!

Lauralness said...

Great picture!! I'm glad that they almost have your walls up for you.

Carol said...

Hi Ranae! Lovely blue finish and what a sweet photo of you and your granddaughter--I think she really resembles you! Glad to hear your kitchen is progressing--it will be worth all of the inconveniences in the end!

RuthB said...

Yes, that there is a very stuffed box. lol

Congratulations on some lovely stitching, and thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving me such a nice comment.

Christine said...

Great stitching!
My cat does exactly the same thing, he can find a too-small box within seconds of it being emptied, and somehow he always manages to squeeze himself in

Julie said...

A special 'granny loves ya' pic, she is adorable.

Kitty picmade me smile, i have one that loves to get into tight places too.

Starr is amazing, so glad you stayed with the fabby, its great.

Suzanne said...

What a wonderful photo! Starr of Mine turned out beautiful, the fabric looks perfect with it.

I know the pain you are going through with a kitchen renovation. My laundry is finished, it just needs painting. We have decided to put ourselves through more renovation pain with our bathroom. What am I thinking!!

Doris said...

the box is a litle tiny to the kitty, look so flurry!.

cute picture of you and your sweetie

Mylene said...

Congrats on the lovely finish and that's a great picture of you and your granddaughter.

Sharon said...

I just love that finish of yours and the picture of you and your grandbaby is just sooo sweet, she is beautiful and so are you. Love the kitty pic too, so funny how they squeeze into little places. xoxo

Sharon said...

Beautiful finish and a beautiful pic of you and Briana!

Sadie said...

What a cutie she is, great pic of you both!
Congratulations on a lovely finish. I am seriously thinking of doing this now that I have seen your finish.
Your cat is so cute.

Myra said...

What a gorgeous girl and happy grandmother! Oh, I absolutely love your header. :o) I am enjoying all your Halloween pictures, I am in Halloween mode right now and it seems that is all I want to stitch. Your Bent Creek pattern probably won't make it until next year but I love it! Thanks for trading with me. If you need some more finishing fabrics, just give me a yell.

Loraine said...

I like the finish. I think it turned out great!
Love the kitty. My cat tries to do the same thing, but she is about 3 times the size of your cat. It's hilarious to see what she tries to squeeze herself into.
Cute picture of you and your sweetie!

Your granddaughter is such a cutie, and "kittie in a box" was wonderful. Cats are so funny to see all the things they try to get into, mine love boxes as well. Congrats on your finish of Starr, it looks fantastic. I'm thrilled too to have won the cat fob, what a fun treat, I just sent you and email.
Sue
