Although I didn't post last week as I spent a lovely week away with my partner and our two dogs I did take my stitching with me and managed to do a little. I had quite a good stitching day on Thursday and it wasn't until I took the fabric off my Q-snap that I could see the full effect and it's really pleasing to see the fabric come alive as the picture grows. I still think I will stick to my original plan and leave the facial features of the cat until last. This is how it looked Thursday -
I've also been stitching on this over the weekend and next week I hope to have a lot more to show.
Monday I had a little "shopping spree" and have bought the fabric ready to restart my Cats in the New year. I decided to buy 28 count white cashel linen and I know this will be huge (approx 16" x 32") if I start to save for the framers now I should have enough by the time it's finished which will be in quite a few years time!
After reading a recent post by Louanne where she mentioned the work of Linda Ravenscroft I just coudn't resist this chart
but the problem is there are a set of four so maybe I will have to make another purchase very soon :) If anyone has done any of these I would love to see the pics or if they are on your list of new starts please let me know and maybe we could start together.
It's a lovely day here in the UK so I'm going to sit outside and stitch. Happy stitching.
