My craft room walls...

...are getting pretty crowded! Last Wednesday I received the first batch of framed Nora Corbett Holiday fairies, and today the last three arrived, so I have spent the last hour hanging and re-hanging pictures. It's difficult to get good pictures, with all of the reflections, but at least they give some idea of what I look at while I'm stitching:

When the first box arrived, I was a bit worried as one of the corners was ripped and bulging out, but Jill's helper did an amazing packing job; I think they could ship anywhere in the world and get it there intact! To give you some idea of the packaging, here is Keishu rustling around in the box full of the packing paper:

And paper from the first box has been well-used this past week by just about all of the kitties!



And Callie:

The white blur on the right side of Tailor's picture is actually Callie's whisker, as she came to me to see what I was doing. She then promptly booted Tailor from the paper tent and got in herself, as if to say that I should take her picture!

No new stitching to share, as I'm still working on a model. I am really hoping to have it done before the stitching retreat in just under two weeks, but I'm not sure if I can do it. Better get back to work!


  1. Wow Melanie. What an awesome looking wall. Love the kitty pics.


  2. All your framed pieces are gorgeous! Your kitties are so pretty and mischievous! I wish I could send some pieces to Jill so my cats could have paper and a box to play in! LOL!

    1. Thanks Marilyn; that is a color called Cursus, on opal Belfast linen, that was dyed by Sugar Maple Fabrics.

  6. Wow! I don't think I could concentrate on my stitching with all of those lovelies to look at! That is some amazing stitching!

    The kitties are too cute!!
