Cat Help

The Cat Crew chose the featured stitch and over-arching theme (a pun, get it!) for today's post.

Design - The Cat from "A Prairie Christmas"  
Designer - The Prairie Schooler
Fabric - 32 count Lambswool linen
Fibers - DMC 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 12 December 2011
Completed - 19 December 2011

I've been decorating the house for Christmas.

But I do not work unsupervised!
(You can see Parvati's post-surgery, post-bucket-on-her head crinkled left ear)

She appointed herself an "Up-High Observer".

The ornaments were a source of much amusement.

Parvati's twin Padma, played ostrich in the Christmas tree, while keeping watch from "Down Low".

He later was caught in a "Cat-Trap" - a very large, empty Ikea bag I used to bring over boxes of ornaments.

I do like the serious expression in the first photo - she looks to be studying the camera intently and posing for you.

Such cute helpers you have, Beth (even with all their mischief!!)... I do love the PS Cat finish--have stitched it a few times myself :)

Cats are fascinated by Christmas trees and ornaments.

Have a wonderful Christmas Beth.
