A Fine Romance

Your comments on the doll have been very appreciated. Thank you!

Although the snow did not reach my place, this has been a cold weekend. I was almost ready to go for a walk, though, when I heard the hunters shooting, so I decided to stay home instead. 
I had received the Dec 2012/Jan 2011 issue of Stitch, and found this nice little project by Janet Humphrey.
It was fun finding the right laces for the background, and the matching beads or sequins. And preparing a nice cup of tea, for me to drink and for the Noel motif to dye.

No dyeing for this one.

Below the grumpy heart-shaped cat, you can see an example of the original project.

This look means "Stop playing on Internet, woman, go to the kitchen and fill my plate!"

I wish you all a good week. Take care!

These hearts are gorgeous Vero. I am always amazed by your talent. Your kitty needs some love...or food. What a cute picture. I hope you are having a good week too.

The last picture with your cat is so hilarious!
I think our little furfriends do think we spend too much time on the internet and less time on them.LOL!
'Please play with me!!!' they said.

Lovely work, as usual, Vero. I'm always amazed at your creative interpretations. And maybe that kitty isn't as grumpy as the photo suggests?

I love the subtle colors in the first heart. Tea dying makes such a pretty shade and looks especially good with white.
Both hearts are beautiful.
Your kitty pic is very funny. Isn't it amazing the expressions we sometimes catch on their faces? :)
