Stitchy stuff, Otis, DH

Okay first I got a new kitty! His name is Otis, yes he had a brother named Milo too. But Milo was adopted by a neighbor. So we drove 2 hours to a little town outside of Stuttgart, and collected him and a few toys and home we went, you would think 2 hours back right? Wrong! There was a road block from all the rain some deisel on the autoban smacked someone so we diverted to back roads which takes us normally 3 hours home well, 20 minutes from home another road block! We couldn't see what it was but there were tons of ambulances and police so we diverted again finally making it home. It took us 4 hours to get home. My wonderful DH drove all this after getting off of a 24 hour shift and only getting to sleep about 2 hours before we left to go get Otis. I was feeding him candy and caffiene the whole time and we had on some upbeat music. I fed my DH not Otis. Anyway here's a pic of him when we got home:

He looks exactly like my moms cat Jewel except she's fat and overweight.

And heres what I managed to get xs'd while I waited to leave but then got a migraine so I couldn't stitch while we drove there, it was gone when we left from getting Otis but then he sat in my lap the whole way home so still no stitching! But I'll complete this today. Its the second part of the TOL sampler:

And lastly, my DH got new pics done so I had to show him off:

Oh, your kitty is precious! I had a cat that looked just like him when I was a little girl..his name was Tiger *original, I know*! LOL!
Anyway, glad you got home safe even though you had a time getting there. DH is handsome and now I see from your DD's piccies from the snow play that they resemble him quite a lot, don't they!

Otis is so cute. He looks just like a cat I use to have. Buffy had beautiful markings. Your WIP is coming along nicely too. Your husband looks good in uniform.

Nice pictures of both your hubby and Otis. Sorry the drive back was so troublesome, your husband must have been just exhausted by the time you got home. Hope the rest of your week goes smoother.

Ohhh, Heidi.... Otis is beautiful, I also have a female a lot like him. Her name is Caiti. I'm so glad you got him! You must be so proud of DH for the good man he is, driving through all that for you and Otis with little sleep. He's quite a handsome man, and the uniform makes me proud of him, and I don't even know him! God Bless America and our troops!

Otis is adorable, Heidi... and he looks so *at home* already! And your DH is quite the handsome lad in his uniform... and he's such a Sweatheart as well... I know he must have been exhausted!
