SPOILER ALERT: Picture of L*K Spooked part 1 in this post

Thanks to all who left kind words for Tailor in my last post. Tomorrow marks two weeks without her, and while my heart is still sore from her loss, we have now adopted two kittens who are making the transition more bearable as we try to get them settled in their new home.

I wasn't able to stitch for a few days, as my eyes were too swollen from crying, and when I was able to get back into it I didn't have the mental focus to work on a model, so I pulled out a Mill Hill kit that I had started a while ago called Sophie Sheep, and was able to finish it:

She joins a finished Percy Pig, with Clarissa Cow still to stitch:

My Gracie was kind enough to keep me company while I beaded:

Another "comfort" stitch was part 1 of Lizzie*Kate's Spooked mystery, which I'm doing on SW Halloween Haunting Belfast:

Last night I started back on the Rosewood Manor model, which is being done with some really pretty WDW threads. So far I've turned in three other models that haven't been released yet, so hopefully they'll be showing up at some of the fall shows soon.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!


  1. Lovely stitching Melanie.


  2. Great finishes and I hope the new kittens help heal the sharp edges of your loss. So glad you're enjoying the model stitching.

  3. Love the stitches. Two kitties? Fun!!

  4. Sophie is so pretty and colorful.
    Great start on the LK.
    Can't wait to see the new RM models.
    Have fun with the 2 new kitties. :)

  5. Lovely stitching I hope we get to see the new kitties soon :)

  6. Hi dear Melanie
    I'm so sorry for your lost
    Tailor will be always in your heart
    I'm happy that you have adopted 2 kittens. Congrats for your beautiful stitches. Gio

  7. Ah bless you being too upset to stitch. Sophie Sheep is so pretty. She doesn't look like an easy stitching have to get back into the swing of it!
    Love the little LK witch but I'm sworn off mystery samplers.
    Hope you're having fun with your new kitties and they're helping with the healing process.
