Flat Tires and Kitties

Just wondering if your Monday started out interesting? Mine did.  My car tire exploded!!! Yep, on my way to work, ran over a pair of scissors in the road (of all things). Hubby is getting it repaired as I write this. Thankfully, I was only a half hour late to work.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving (hope you all did, too!) and  a wonderful potluck at church on Sunday! Wish I could eat like that every day!!!! I have a question for all you cross stitchers out there ... do any of you know where I could find the pattern to this adorable kitty pillow? The designer was/is Kitty and Me Designs. From JCS Ornament Issue 2007. Stitched 2007 for a Christmas Ornament exchange on the Cross Stitch Crazy posting board. I'd love to find the pattern and stitch it up for myself with a little prim touch here and there.

Also, the giveaway items I won from Debbie over at Woolen Sails arrived and I will post pictures soon! They are awesome, especially the wool and wool pennies she sent in lovely prim Christmas colors.  As I write this post, it is getting darker and darker outside ... we are in for some rain/slush/snow this afternoon. Wish I was home, drinking some tea, sitting on my couch with my kitties and reading a good book! (I will be soon ... only two more hours at work to go!).  Well, I'm signing off for today. Hope you've had a good day and don't forget to visit my sidebar for some new giveaways!

  1. Okay, first of all, you have the best headers to your blog. I just love them. :-) I wish I could help you out on the kitty pillow, but I'm not much of a cross stitcher these days and am out of the loop.

    You ran over scissors? You have to wonder how in the world they got into the middle of the road to begin with. Who looses scissors our their car windows? Though, I say this and I was wrapping a present on Friday afternoon in the car while on my way to the party. Oh, no, I wasn't driving, my husband was. ;-) But I can't imagine loosing the scissors out the window or anything. I mean, it's cold out, the windows are rolled up... and I'm going on and on about this for far too long, aren't I.

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. We did too! ANd thank you for stopping by CluckleBees and leaving your kind comments. I really enjoy your visits.

    Blessings,

  3. Hi ya sweety:) Scissors in the road... strange place for them to be. Sorry you had to go through that. Could've slid off someone's car after they left them there. I left my purse atop my car once, when I was young, lol:)

  4. Wow, bummer about those tires! Glad you are safe though. Can't help you with the cross stitch pattern search hope someone else can.
    I sure love all the cat photos on your blog header and side bar. Your blog is kind of like a warm store front to walk in to.

    Did you at least keep the scissors? I hope they were good ones since they gave you a flat tire. ha,ha
