Love, love, love your pink calico kitty. It would be perfect for our great granddaughter Molly who will be one year old on January 4th. Someone has to keep the sock monkey I made for her company!


What a sweet kitty. I just bought (bad, I know) a stuffed sock monkey for a gift basket for my son's school. All of the students were gathering things for a toddler who has cancer. This would have made a much, much better contribution. Thanks for the chance to win. And happy holidaying!

Alexis Brooks

That is the cutest kitty that ever was! She would look so cute on my bed!


Happy Holidays!! Love that little calico kitty, he made me smile;)


Awe, Pinky Rose is cute, with all the granddaughters that I have I couldn't pick who to give it to, so I would just keep it for myself :)

I have a 7 year old kitty lover who would love Pinky Rose! Thanks for the sweet give-away!


My grandaughter would absolutly love Pinky. (So would I). Thanks for the chance.


Oh what a sweet little kitty! I have several little grand children who would love her to pieces! Now I'm off to check out that coffee cake recipe. Merry Christmas!


Darling kitty! Sweet bakery shop cookies going there, too. (My oven just gave up the ghost tonight of all times of the year. Looks as if I'll be spending some time at the real bakery shop.) Good thing that you described your baking so nicely. I can almost smell it above the burnt aroma wafting about here.

Awwww, Pinky Rose is adorable! She looks like she is wearing thermal long underwear! I could say I'd love to give Pinky to my daughter whose middle name is also Rose...but I think Pinky would rather be MY new best friend instead. ;)

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

Bobbi M

What a cute kitty! She looks like she could tap-dance her way right out of the photograph! :) Merry Christmas!


Oh, how sweet Pink Rose is in her winter jammies! Just adorable. Have a very Merry Christmas, Vicki. (Love the tiny sugar cookies!)

Mom Wald

What a charming new header. Your calico kitty is the real charmer! Please include me in your drawing.

Kudos to you for working so hard on getting your goodies out during such a busy season. Take a break now and have Very Merry Christmas!


I would love to win your calico kitty. Cats are my favorite people! i only just found your blog, and I love it!

Angela Prince-Bex

Rose is precious! Love all your creativity.


I always have room for one more kitty! She's very sweet, and probably lots quieter than the ones here already...


Very, very sweet! I have a kitty-loving little girl at my house who would love to welcome her home. :-)


So cute! My daughter would love it. We just got a second cat and they adore each other. Love it.

Josette Marcellino

Thanks for the sweet giveaway...

Shari Harniss

My great-niece Bella would adore this!

Judith (from Israel)

I'd love to win "Pinky Rose". She'd make a gorgeous addition to my collection of cats.

Donna Mac

JUST DARLING!!! I do have some great nieces, and HOPEFULLY, someday a granddaughter. So please count me in...and THANK YOU!


would LOVE to win this! My girl LOVES kittys!


I've been looking around your website and have decided that I really love your work. The kitty s adroable. Thanks for the chance to win her.

Connie Copenhaver

Just found your blog & LoVe it!!! I can't wait to check out your books. I can't imagine why you'd want to give away you little Rose kitty, if I had made her, she would never leave my home. I am 51 and I still have my Raggedy Ann from when I was about 7. I don't have children of my own, but I design children's toys, like you, and give them to the kids at church and I also send many of them to children in 3rd world countries. My husband's favorite type of cat is a Calico, I'll have to show him your precious Pinky Rose when he gets home from work. I hope she finds a loving warm home and arms of joy to hold her for many years to come! Merry Christmas and may your little home business continue to grow and bring laughter to many hearts! God Bless You and your family!!!


What a little darling! I LOVE cats and collect unique ones to display. She'd be a great addition to my "cat-a-family." Thanks for sharing!


Calico kitty is amazing! My daughter is obsessed wirh cats along with anything to do with sewing. Sadly I am very challenged in this area but am trying to be less of a spaz each day. If you would like the most living home for your kitty, my daughter should be considered. You truly have a talent :)


What I meant to say was loving but our house is full of life as well.

kristine hanson

darling kitty, I have an 8 year old who would love a little kitty like this since we don't have our 16 year old "kitty" anymore.


My little granddaughter would love to snuggle with this adorable kitty! I'm new here so I'm off to explore!


Vicki, Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family!!
Hugs! Jeri


Is that not the sweetest kitty ever??? I can't believe how many things I still haven't made from your charming books. Maybe this will be the year I finally catch up on some things ~~ is that even possible? Pinky Rose would ever be so at home in our cottage ~ fingers crossed and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!
P.S. I do hope Pinky likes to travel as it would be a coast to coast adventure for her!!!

Debra Wortman

Pink calico kitty is so cute! After seeing the pattern in your embroidery book, I have been longing to make one, especially for Grand-daughter Abigail Rose, whose 1st birthday is today! Keep on with the good inspirations , Vicki! You and your company are such a wonderful resource for those of us who appreciate vintage embroidery projects!

Robin D

I absolutely love your kitty. She would be loved by any child


The coffee cake sounds wonderful! I take care of 3 little girls, 15 months old. I can imagine all of the love and hugs Pinky Rose would get around here. They have just started noticing dolls and giving them hugs and carrying them around. It's so cute to watch.


This kitty is soooo cute be a great toy for my grandchild. Merry Christmas and blessings in the New Year!!!!

Such a cute kitty!! My daughter would love it as a birthday gift when she turns 6 in March. We used to call her "Meow Meow" when she was a newborn because her cries sounded like a kitten.

Love love love this little kitty! It would be a perfect item for my grandchild's dowry. Yes, I'm placing beautiful things aside for my first grandchild!

Laura Snazel

Your darling Pinky Rose would find herself in our 14 year old daughter's welcoming arms; just days before last christmas we had to put down her cat, Pinky, who after receiving months of dialysis was too ill to keep up the good fight against kidney disease. We adopted Pinky when Desi turned 5; the entire kindergarten class was invited to her birthday party held at a community center - around 90 people showed up! Yet insured instead of gifts, everyone brought donations for the rescue Pinky came from. Your sweet, precious, Pinky Rose would be a nice remembrance for her.

Becky Stancill

What a sweet kitty! And such a sweet giveaway. How can you part with her?


Oh, how I would love to have that adorable kitty for my little great niece who is three!

Oh this is a charming kitty. I can think of a little girl who would love it. 'Course, I suppose we all have a little girl inside of us, still.

Love to you and your family, and a very happy Christmas to each of you.

As always, I love your work. :) The kitty is too cute! I have both of your books but haven't made up the kitty yet. :) On an aside, I found a 100% wool blanket the other day! Cream colored and FREE! It's a bit thick, though; we'll see what I can do with it.


This little kittie has something on her mind, i wonder what it could be. I am sure i would find out if she came to live at my house. I know we would have many great conversations and cuddles!!!
