“row of cats” – 3 more

My cross stitching followers will be pleased to hear that I’ve put down my crochet hook over the past week . . . and have been cross stitching a little more.

Which means, the four Bothy Threads cats I showed you, not very long ago, have been joined by 3 new playmates.

bothy plus 3

Well, two and a half really, since one is only a kitten.  I therefore have 7 cats on my aida

plus an extra toy (next to the Siamese).  I’m still hating the backstitch, but am gritting my teeth and getting it done.  Nothing worse than having to go back over an entire project with backstitch at the end.  Much less painful to do it as I go.

So . . . 2 more cats to stitch (to the left) plus a few edible items.  Next time I show you this project, I’ll be having a happy dance!

    • don’t worry, it’ll be gentle ^^
      Foot is doing well this week but all the resting is playing havoc with sciatica which is still with me, but only in left leg. Lots of walking usually helps to ease it, but obviously, I’m not allowed to do much walking these days.

  1. I was wondering about your sciatica and hoping you get through the foot recovery without it going bonkers again! Our winter got so long and snowy, mine started twinging again. I had to pull out the yoga mat and get serious about doing hip turn outs for a week or two. I much prefer walking!!! Cute cats, and T least they are. Diversion while you keep your foot resting. 😄

    • before foot op, I had been doing some extra exercise on a “cross trainer” which has eliptigo movement, and the exercise seemed to be helping sciatica, but I forgot to ask foot surgeon when I could get back on that. When in doubt . . . wait for the next medical check-up and get the green light.
