Broken Needles

My Christmas gift sewing got off to a bad start - two broken needles. I put that project aside until I can get a really heavy duty needle for my machine. So I went on to this .....
It is part of a panel designed by Jacquelynne Steves of The Nobel Wife which I won in a giveaway Sandi of A Legacy of Stitches had a while back. Now this project did not break any needles and turned out quite cute. Since it is a gift I cannot tell you what it became part of.

I finished another project with red felted wool. And, made headway on a Christmas mug rug.
Ms Cha Cha Cat bonded with the fusible fleece. She had a touch start to her day. The darling kitty thought she had a new trick. Screaming in my ear yesterday at 7 a.m. earned her cat treats. A repeat performance at 4 a.m. today woke me. She was doing a Victory Dance when the bedroom door stranded her all alone in the hall. Cat treats were served at 8 a.m. - back on our normal schedule!

I hate those days when the needles break. It's usually a sign my machine wants a clean.
Hope you don't get such a rude awakening this morning

I'm looking forward to seeing all your Christmas projects. I'm sorry, but I had to laugh at the thought of the expression on her face when she realised she'd been stranded!

That's a cute panel - I look forward to seeing finished gift when you can show us in due course.

Ms Cha Cha has found a comfy resting place there - she is not daft! One of my cats sometimes thinks that patting my face with his paw at 4am because he is hungry is acceptable pratice, which it most certainly is NOT!
