Surprise package from Pam, bits and bobs.

Pam K is one of the most talented CQ embroiderers in the world as far as I'm concerned, so I am always tickled pink when she sends me one of her creations! This is one of her three dimensional CQ cats. The second photo is a bit closer so you can see the detail. Pam embellishes to the NTH degree - fabulous work! Thanks again, my dear friend :-)

I found this cloth at the opshop today for $3, and even though it is machine embroidered, it is so beautifully done I decided it was worth adding to my collection.  You can't tell from the photos, but most of the thread is metallic, with a lot of gold thread used.
 

Check this out.  Tiger follows me all around the house when he is inside, and if I settle down in one room for a while, he has to settle down with me.  But please, Puss - not in my lace box for goodness sake!

Such a elegant cat creation! Love that tablecloth! Tiger is just like a true cat.....always wants to be on some kind of fabric or work in progress! So sweet.

Lovely tablecloth...I found a similar one at an estate sale and had to have it too.....although machine embroidered, it is very pretty and has the metallic threads on it, mine has a natural brown fabric......
the cat is wonderful! what a little elegant gem of a gift!

So glad it finally arrived safely Gina! I mailed back at Christmas!

The machine embroidered tabletopper is gorgeous! I love to use machine embroidered hankies in my CQ work.

And what can I say about your kitty? What a gorgeous little guy! Look at that face!

Hugs, Pam
