First Finish for the Year !!!! If Cats could Talk ...

Hot off the needle - If Cats could Talk ...


Stitched using Nancy's lovely hand-dyed threads (see her latest giveaway by clicking here .)


  I was lucky to receive this from the 123stitch site wish list early in the year and as such, will be passing on the chart in a givaway later this year as I do plan to stitch this design at least another two times this year.


I did change the colours, mainly because I have an orange cat.  I did not have the charm called for on the chart - oh yes... the pattern is 'Designs by Lisa', so added a spare bead.  I'll have to think about how to frame it, as the bead means it will have to have some spacers on a frame - or I'll frame it with fabric and call it a wall-hanging.  I want this one on my wall.

It is beautiful. I love it when we add our own little touches (in my case accidental personalization usually rofl)and I think your cat is puuurfect!

Very cute finish! I have some of Nancy's floss and can't wait to find a piece to use them on.

Way awesome portrait of Pyro.
Wall hanging would be good. What about stretching it over a canvas frame and adding a fabric border around that?
