This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs.
I love the look that the grey tabby is giving to that slipper!
There should be a line of text beneath the picture, reading Crazy Cat Lady, but I’ve decided that I prefer it without so I left it off.
The kit was from Heritage Crafts and the chart was excellent, being very clear and easy to read. The straddled cross stitches and different partial stitches made it a bit more challenging than some projects but it also made it more interesting and fun to do. I did replace the supplied 14 count Aida with some nice 28 count evenweave, which made all the partial stitches easier to do, plus I much prefer the look and feel of it. I loved that there was a separate chart for the backstitch, so the lines didn’t obscure the partials.
My next project is all ready to start. It’s from one of my favourite designers and is quite different to Cat Lady. Hopefully I’ll have some progress to show you on that in three weeks.
For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:
Avis, Claire, Gun, LucyAnn, Kate, Jess, Sue, Constanze, Debbierose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Linda, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny,Hayley, Megan, Catherine, Deborah, Connie, Clare, Mary Margaret, Renee, Jenny
Look how many of us there are now! We’re getting more people join us all the time and it’s great to see their progress posts every three weeks.
Do allow for people being in different time zones, so not posting all at the same time, but it’s well worth doing a bit of blog hopping to see all the lovely projects that are being worked on.
