Since the last time I've posted, we've had concerts, field trips, plays, volunteering and just normal insanity.
The field trip involved a bit of a drive so I cast on for a kitty blanket. This is 2 skeins in.
I also (please be seated and put down all food and drinks) finished a project.
Yes you read that right!!! I finished a project!!!! And not just any project. A cross stitch!!!!
Kitty Cat Row is complete. It only took me 4 1/2 years.
|Kitty Cat Row in all it's glory!|

|mouse with a less than perfect colonial knot. I say it's sticking out its tongue at the other cats|
Here are the stats:
Kitty Cat Row by Bent Creek
Date start: early 3/11
Date end: 11/26/15
Stitched on 28ct linen in Sand over two.
No substitutions with floss were made. I used all the specialty threads listed.
As I was finishing up the backstitching, my eyes were reminding me that they aren't as young as they used to be. Bright light and readers were involved. Makes me question the completion of other linen projects. Regardless of blindness, I HAVE A FINISH!!!
Lets see how long before I have it framed.......
