Gymnasts Start

Good afternoon. We are enjoying great weather right now, it's going to be in upper 30's and 40's all week. The snow is slowly melting. Still has a long ways to go though. My cat is really enjoying that sun. He lays up on his cat tree or next to the patio door right where the sun can hit him.
This piece is a little crooked sorry. It will go to my niece, Addison, who loves gymnastics. Only this pattern isn't easy. It has so many quarter stitches it isn't funny. As it is I made a mistake but cannot figure out where. I hate it when that happens. So I guess I will do a little improvising.
Last Saturday some of our cats from Faithful to Felines were taken out to Petco to hopefully get adopted. They had a great day out there that day, about 8 cats got adopted. (Some of them were in foster care. But 4 from Faithful 2 Felines got adopted. Three of them were from the two room I like to do, and I just knew Lollipop, Nina, and Carina would get adopted and they did. We had one cat adopted from the shelter too. The lady came wanting to adopt a couple of other cats from one of my rooms, so they came and got me. Only neither Sunny nor Cloud wanted any part of her, but Neeson was all over her, so she went home with Neeson. So needless to say I was on cloud 9 Saturday. Especially when I heard the other 3 got adopted along with others out at Petco. Unfortunately the shelter cats don't get to go out to Petco too often.
Oh about Turtle trot this month. It didn't happen. I just got caught up in other stitching so I really won't have anything. But I have a feeling this piece will be turning into a Turtle Trot. I started it intending it to be one. It will be worked on every month. Or most months. I have an Iris piece that will also be added to TT this year. I'll start that soon. Well--until next time Happy Stitching!

Great new start! Gymnastics is something I could never do (too much of a bookworm in school haha).

And so great about the kitties finding their forever homes! I'm glad they'll get chances to be happy. :)

I don't love quarter stitches either. But it's a lovely design that you are stitching for your niece.

Fun new piece, she'll love having the little gymnast stitched just for her. So glad to hear several of the cats got adopted, what a great way to start off March. We are getting sun here finally too, and my two cats are loving laying in the sunbeams streaming in.
