Barnabee’s Quest is almost over…

Hopefully by next Friday, Barnabee will have made it to his destination. He has been a busy little bee. This weekend, I made it all the way to the bottom of the sampler. All that is left before adding embellishments is to add a little to the boarder, stitch some bees and backstitch the honeycombs.


And now for some obligatory kitty cuteness. It was a beautiful weekend in DC, so we had all the windows open in the house. The cats were sooo excited. Zoe especially didn’t know what to do with herself. I am pretty sure she sat in every window this afternoon. Here are Cooper and Zoe kissing. Don’t tell them I shared this pic…I am pretty sure they don’t want anyone knowing they like each other!

And here they are watching kitty TV.

I hope everyone had a wonderfully relaxing weekend! Allen and I had some time to enjoy the beautiful weather. I spent my afternoon tackling the evil Ivy that is trying to eat our mailbox. It does not want to give in. I would love to be able to get it all up without the use of chemical plant death, but after it ate Allen’s pitchfork this afternoon, I may have to change my tune on that one. Hopefully next weekend will be just as nice and I can get another crack at it. Unfortunately, it is back to work in the morning and I will have to waste most of another beautiful day stuck in an office building/school. ICK!!

ETA: For those who enquired, my spring dragon was designed by Cross My Heart. You can get it as a kit, a pamphlet with a few other dragon patterns or download just the seasonal dragons from Patterns Online. I will probably be starting on summer dragon in the next few weeks.



  1. Barnabee is lovely! You’ve done that in record time!
    And your little fur babies are cute 🙂
    I hope the ivy doesn’t get the best of you! LOL!

  6. Cute kitty pics! Love Barnabee. Congrats on your almost-finish.

  7. I can’t wait for your finished Barnabee!!! Your cats are so adorable!!!

  8. I sympathise with you about the ivy – I live in a 3rd floor apartment and have to keep taking down the mesh screen in the kitchen window to hack back the ivy climbing its way up it … it’s a perseverent plant, that’s for sure, and keeps coming back for more! You’d done Barnaby some great justice, and in super quick time too – way to go! 😀 Geez I wish those pesky grapes in Bordeaux would stitch up as quickly huh? LOL. Love the kitty photos too 🙂
