SAL Update and a XS Buffet!

Here is my progress on Salem Sisters as of today, over half way done! Yay! Unfortunately, I have to stop because I am out of VC deep purple. Slightly aggravating because I have been on a roll. But, it will give me time to finish my birthday club exchange-so it's all good. I had to break out the q-snaps on this one as the material was so soft, it was driving me nuts. Have you ever had fabric to do that?

Below is a picture of my new antique buffet! Of course, I don't have a dining room to put this in. So, what am I going to use this gorgeous piece of furniture for? I will give you one guess. Do you even really need to guess? LOL Alright, I will stop teasing, it's to store my cross stitch in. I call it my cross stitch buffet. I don't know what year it was made in. It is all wood, with deep drawers and it had four trays in the middle that would typically hold silverware, but I am going to put my threads there. I will take pictures when it is all set up like I want it to be. They just don't make furniture like they used to. The best thing was I got it on sale and it a Christmas gift from my Mom. Do you think she loves me? LOL

Now, on an unhappy note, my cats have been on it and I have a couple of scratches on it. I had it less than 24 hours before this happened. I know cats climb on furniture, I don't usually have a problem with that. But, I would like to keep them off this. Does anyone who owns cats have a suggestion for this? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Speaking of cats, if you look at the bottom of the picture you will see my culprit! Okay,now that I have talked your ears off, so I am going. Thanks for all your comments on my last finish. Much appreciated. Have a great week and happy stitching!
