Max the cat.....

......has a bit more of a face!


I'm afraid it's been one of  'those' weeks, and I didn't get nearly as much stitching/crafting time that I had hoped for. Still, each little X finished means a stitch closer to completion.  Maybe this week I will be able to carve out some time for myself.....fingers crossed!

I do have a fun project to share with you....this is from this month's World Of Cross Stitching magazine, which has literally just arrived. I've been looking forward to seeing my little fishy designs all stitched up....and here they are....



....do you remember playing this game when you were young? Back in the day (haha!) we played it with paper fish with a paperclip attached, and then little magnets to 'catch' the fish. I remember making the paper version of it for my children to play and they always had so much fun. 


A cross stitch version of the game is perfect....and a bit more long lasting than the paper ones!



Cute huh?


Until next time....happy stitching!

I bought the magazine yesterday and thought how cute they looked but I hadn't made the connection to you! Max is looking good too - although perhaps a little spooky without his eyes?!! :)
