QS White Cat

I can't believe it has been 3 months since I've last posted so firstly I would like to apologise for my lack of participation in the group. Even though I have done hardly any stitching for weeks - well months really - I've been checking the progress of those of you who have been posting and have seen some wonderful finishes and work being done so well done everyone. I think I got a bit misheartened when one of my other projects (Ink Circles Cirque des Triangles) went haywire and I had to unpick weeks of work and restart due to my own stupidity. A mistake I won't make a second time - have a look at my blog.

This Sunday I had a day to myself so I picked up my QS White Cat and managed to make good progress so at long last I feel I have something worth sharing. Now I can't seem to put it down which was what happened previously so I've decided this will be my main project over the next few weeks.

Here are my before and after pics:-






I have been pondering over what to do with my other HAED project "Cats" as I was really struggling stitching on 25 count fabric. I'm afraid my eyesight is just not good enough and I was not enjoying stitching on this fabric. As I really don't want this to become a UFO I have tried out a few other fabrics starting with 40 count then 32 count but have finaly decided that I am most comfortable with a 28 count fabric so next time I go "shopping for stash" I will buy a new piece of fabric and am going to make this my new start for 2010 (less than 3 months away - it's frightening how time goes by).

I won't be posting next week as I am going on holiday but I will be taking my stitching with me and hope to have something to share with you next time.
