Sorry I haven't posted any stitching updates lately. I just haven't had a chance to. Life gets in the way of stitching sometimes. Last week I stitched up Persian Pen Name's (her blog is Panda Bonzai) birthday gift. It is by Subversive Cross Stitch. If foul language offends you do not look at the to the last picture in this blog entry. You have been warned. The little rat featured in the pics is my rattly furball Persephone. We recently lost her sister Artemis to an upper respiratory infection and anemia. I have also included a WIP of Mini Mandal Set 1 C. So far it has been a fun and fairly quick stitch. Of course I have been working on it for several weeks and I am only about halfway done. Again life getting in the way of stitching. Oct is the birthday month of my DH and several of my friends. I had suprise get together at my house last weekend and have posted a picture of the cake. There are 50 candles on it for Persian Pen Name and DH's combined age. My goodness it resemebled a torch.

Oh, a rattie! I had 2 rats a few years ago and they made the best little pets. They were so sweet that they made friends out of former "rats are NASTY" people!

How neat to see one of the subversive patterns stitched up "IRL", so to speak! I need to start the "Happy *%$&ing Holidays" one soon, I think.

I've never had a pet rat, but my sister and I had hamsters and mice when we were kids....I LOOOOVED my little mouse. (the hamster was mean, though. hehehe)
