Stash Enhancement on a Stash Ban and A New Family Member and a page finish

First things first. Jason brought home a little kitten yesterday morning. He stopped at a gas station near our house that is right on a busy street and found this poor baby in the pouring rain. I am told it came right up to him and snuggled when he picked it up. lol, whatever the case we asked around and no one is claiming him, so we took him to the vet this morning to check for a chip, just to be on the safe side, and no chip. We started his shots and he will be going back to be neutered in a couple of weeks. This is not the best picture but it is hard to take a good one when you are holding a cat!
The vet gave him a clean bill of health this morning. He is quite the lap baby!

In stitchy news did you know that it isn't stash if you used a gift card and not your own money?
Yep, I am assured that if you win a gift card then it doesn't count as breaking your stash ban. That only counts if you are spending your own money. So...
From Charting creations came this as a gift.
Tribal Wolf Silhouette available here:
This is a shot of my pdf download front page picture from my computer screen. I'll be stitching this on 18 ct. black aida with white glow in the dark floss. I was shocked to see how much more difficult it is to work on black cloth for me now. This one is for my husband.

I treated myself to Mischief, since I've been thinking of it since it came out. Link here.
Isn't it marvelous?

Then there was this from 123 Stitch, partially supplies for Tribal Wolf Silhouette.
And a Lizzy Kate, and yes, I have a better picture but it won't load!

Here is the little needle threader. At first I laughed at the size but I have been using it steadily and it is good.
Now, do I have any actual stitching to show you? I do actually.
A page finish on White Dragon!
Ta-Da! And I made the Qsnap guard too, so fun all around!

I also made a little start on Mini The Ghost but this is getting long, so I will post about that next time. I also have some information on trying out pipe insulation as a needleholder, so pics and info on that and on the little ornament kit you see in the picture above.

Until next time happy stitching everyone.
