Jean loves cats and the color yellow. I went with the yellow, but I'll try my hardest to get a kitty on the inside with the scripture. Wish I could send a real one for the great comfort they provide.
This circle has my embroidery on it, using a variegated yellow thread. The flowers are from a ribbon that is white. Though barely visible here, the same stamp that is on the white bg piece, is stamped under the sentiment. I hope Jean likes the yellow and blue combination, the yellow represents sunshine and cheer, while the blue represents the vast sky and oceans.
I decided to see how long it took to do the embroidery while watching TV, it took 45 minutes.

Good grief, I had to look twice to realise that all that detailed framing really is some of your wonderful stitching - it's beautiful!! So are those lovely lacy flowers.
Umm, how can you watch television and see where you're putting the needle? I know I can knit and watch, but trying cross-stitch was a total failure on both counts.
