This month the challenge piece we chose at Needlecraft Haven was this one from Lynn at Happiness is Cross Stitching. The album is here. Only a couple of finishes so far this month, I think everyone has been too busy with holidays and summer activities.
I finished mine as an little ornament (I know, how boring am I?) to hang in my kitchen, and I couldn't resist turning my teapot and cup into blue and white Cornish Ware. Its backed with a blue and white striped fabric (natch), and I made a little hanger from some artfully rusted (ie acidentally left in the garden) wire and blue and white beads.
On the crafty front, I've been playing with my Cuttlebug and I've made some little vintage-inspired heart ornaments.I'll leave you with a picture of Bill the foster-cat. Here we see him failing to grasp the concept of the cat flap...
Your finished work is quite lovely -
Hopefully Bill will get the "cat flap" idea soon :)
ooo I stitched this one too .. its a lovely sweet design :) and poor Bill hasn't quite got the hang of it yet has he ..lol love mouse xxxx
yup..i really love your finished work..it is so lovely..i love it with my heart..
and bill is so sweet too..kisses xx
Your little hearts are adorable, Christine--very sweet...As is the tea inspired ornament. I love the blue and white you've chosen (my whole kitchen and family room are blue and white!).
Bill is sweet--I hope he figures out the cat flap very soon :)
Love the challenge finish and the way you changed the pot & cup to match your cornishware.
I'm a sucker for hearts so clearly they are a winner with me!
The challenge finish looks great, and your little hearts are adorable!
Poor Bill, hope he gets the hang of the cat flap! My cat (picture on my blog) is probably too big to get through a cat flap, not to mention too lazy!! lol
Love your challenge finish and those hearts are so sweet :)
all so pretty. I love the hearts
Being from one of the 'colonies', grin, I hadn't heard Cornish Ware. Love the blue and creamy white!
where has it been all my life?
Love the pic of bill the cat. cheering remotely for him to travel through the magical mystery flap and find his out cat!
Um, that's 'outER' cat...
Lovely finish on the challenge piece and the hearts are so pretty.
Hope Bill has found his way outside by now!
Your finishes are all cute. Love the artfully rusted hanger!! And Bill is gorgeous! I would love to have a cat door, but my apartment won't allow it.
I love how you matched your teapot! So cute! The hears are adorable!
The hearts are soooo cute! Love how you finished the monthly challenge, well done!
Super challenge finish, will try harder this month and get mine done in plenty of time!
Lobing the vintage hearts, so pretty
Awww, Bill is lovely, furry headscratches from me and the boys
