A Finish!!!!

Quick Stitch White Cat

I haven't done any stitching at all for about four months but recently picked this piece up again as I wanted to finish it by October. It literally took me under three weeks to totally finish it and I put in my final stitch on 9 August.

Here is my last progress pic

and here is my finish.

Stitched on 28 count white evenweave Jobelan
Started 9 April 2009
Finished 9 August 2010

The picture doesn't do it justice, it really is beautiful even though I say it myself lol. I started this piece in remembrance of my white cat Lily who went missing - it is just so like her. I never thought it would look as lovely as it does and can't wait to have it framed and put on display. It is one of those pictures that follows you around the room and I am so pleased I have finally finished it as it has taken me far to long to complete.

This has also given me my stitching mojo back and the very next day I ordered QS Red Witch by Linda Ravenscroft and started stitching straight away. I first saw the full version of this piece on this blog and I liked it more each time I saw it.

Here is how it will look

I am stitching this on Polstitches hand-dyed Pearl 28 count Jobelen 2 over 2. Here is my progress so far.

Well Sheila, you have been busy lately! Your white cat is amazing. How lovely that it's a remberance piece for you, makes it even more awesome. Congratulations on the stunnoing finish. You've made a great start on Red Witch, Linda R is my favorite HAED artist so it's dear to my heart, and I love seeing her work stitched. I'll be watching closely for more updates!

3 weeks?? Wow! And good point, we need to all have professional cameras to capture the beauty of these stitched pieces. Red Witch looks awesome too!
