Cats & Quilts - a match made in heaven... (except maybe those stubborn little clouds of fur that latch on to the fabric!)

Kitty Quote of the Day

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul. - Jean Cocteau

Tuesday Treasures

My treasure today is another saved craft work from the Op Shop. It is a lovely cross stitch sampler, framed & with anti glare glass. The cross stitch panel is 60 cm x 38cm (24 inches x 15 inches).

I started my stitching hobby with cross stitch so know this would take me so long to complete. Every stitch is perfect & so much time, effort, expense & love must has been expended to make it. It has pride of place in my home now & was a brilliant $20 investment.

To see a whole lot of treasures, go to Melody's blog & check out the other links.

Happy stitching

  1. That sampler is amazing. I love the look of cross stitch but it is way too slow isgrowing for me. $20 and with such a lovely frame is a great investment.

  2. Oh my gosh! What a fantastically gorgeous find at an incredible steal of a price! Oh goodie for you!!!

    Happy stitching,
