Despite the fact that the stores all are featuring Valentine items, we still have our Christmas decorations up. They won't come down till tomorrow, Epiphany, and who knows when the train will be put away? (I always hope by Easter!) This is one of the few cross stitch projects I've done and kept; most have been gifts. I fell in love with this pattern at first glimpse because the snowmen reminded me of our choir....one of the most fun musical experiences we've had.
After posting the raccoon photo, I realized we didn't have a good photo of Ginger. (She's the black blob in the confrontation photo.) So Dick took this one. In looking back at old pictures, it's very apparent she's now a full grown kitty! And a tough subject as she won't pose in a way that shows her pretty coloring. She's a tortie, has 3 dark legs with a dark stripe down her face, and most photos make her look black, but she's not. When we adopted her last year, we promised to keep her inside, and as you can see on the raccoon picture, our backyard is filled with dangerous critters, lots of them!
