Michigan Map is finished


Here it is with it's changes. This will be one of three maps to go to my oldest niece, Michelle.

Well I think I did my good deed for the year. I'm not sure. There was a stray cat coming to the home my brother lived in. The owners allowed him to feed it and befriend it, but because of their allergies, he really needed to find a home or take it to Animal Control to be put down. I talked him into taking it to the Humane Society so today we did it. She was a beautiful orange cat and so sweet. If Whiskers wasn't 15 I would have kept it but I have to watch out for Whiskers first. She really was so good in the car, not wild not meowing loudly or anything. I just called the Humane Society and they said she passed the physical and is such a pretty, sweet, friendly cat they'll have no problem finding a home for her. Our Humane Society doesn't put the animal down unless it is ill.
I started # 4 towards the challenge. We'll see if it drives me crazy. It's an easy piece but I've had to frog so much. Plus at my parents house I couldn't concentrate on it so that didn't help.

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

That is really lovely. It would have taken me three times as long to stitch this with all the changes you made to the design. You are FAST!m

Oh, I wish I lived close enough to come scoop up that kitty!!

Your map turned out so great - Michelle's a lucky duck!

I love your new finish! What a nice thing to do for your niece.

I'm happy that the Humane Society think that they can adopt away the kitty. Red cats usually have a sweet disposition and I think that's why they are so popular.

That is beautiful, can you tell me who makes that pattern. My mom's from MI and I think that would be great to stitch. I just finished the MI State quarter @ Cyberstitchers.com.
