Here is my progress this week on Celtic Winter. I finished a little more on the skirt, more on the right border and started on the puffy thing in her hand. The Whisper thread really looks neat. This is the first time I have ever used it. Tomorrow night I will actually do some work on White Wedding…Bad me for not pulling it out last night, but I got too caught up in Tuesday night TV. With these 2 hour American Idols, I end up watching NCIS and Scrubs down in the basement and it is a pain to bring my big stitching stuff down. As for tonight’s kick off show, I was right in who would get kicked off, but was a bit surprised by the other two in the bottom three.

On a funny kitty note, Cooper was apparently a bit jealous about Zoe’s “tape butt” incident being immortalized on my blog. Tonight, as Allen and I were settling in to watch the Survivor filler show, we hear a great thundering coming down the steps. Tons of stuff was knocked over, which is not usually the case even when Cooper chases Zoe. On this occasion, Zoe was no where in sight and as Cooper ran off, I kept hearing this funny thumping noise. As he ran around the corner again, I noticed that something black, but not Zoe,was chasing him. It turned out to be a large fuzzy black mouse toy that hangs from the door to one of our bedrooms. Apparently the string it hangs on got caught around Coopers leg and he yanked it off its hanger. I thought Cooper’s poor heart was going to explode. Now he his firmly attached to the couch next to daddy for protection:)



  1. She’s looking great!

    Poor Cooper! Hopefully that’ll be the last ‘something attached to the cat’ incident LOL!

  2. Celtic Winter is looking great, Leslie! πŸ™‚
    I can imagine how scared Cooper must have been… But sometimes they’re just too funny aren’t they! πŸ˜‰

  3. CW is looking great! Poor Cooper! I guess he couldn’t let his sister get all the attention. πŸ™‚

  4. Awww! Poor Cooper! I hope he’s feeling less stressed now.

  5. Your CW is looking good. I haven’t been brave enough to use the Wisper thread yet, leaving it all ’til the end!

  6. Great progress on this since I was last by here. Love the cot stories and I’m with you on Idol was shocked with the bottom three but happy about the ones voted off. So many good ones this time makes the voting difficult.

  7. Hi Leslie,

    Celtic Winter is looking great. I hope Cooper is ok now:)

  8. Hi! Looks like your CW will soon have a face πŸ™‚ Yay! Oh no! Cooper!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. CW is coming right along, Leslie πŸ™‚
    Cheering you on !!!

  10. Oh poor Cooper – I’m only just catching up on blogs again, and I have to say I sat and fair howled at the picture in my head of poor Cooper being ‘chased’ by the mouse toy – thanks for giving me a laugh today πŸ˜€

  11. Stitching Celtic Winter and I think 2 strands of Whisper with 1 thread of DMC is a bit thick. Just wondered what you used?
