Jo's January Finish

I have finished the stitching but not the finishing!!  It's a little bit big for an ornie and my son has no use for a pillow finish so I think I'll be scrapbooking it then getting another 12inch box frame for his bedroom so we can swap the designs about.

That means a trip to the craft shop which isn't on the books for a little while yet.  I only get a 20minute break when I'm at work so there's not time to eat a sandwich, drink a coffee AND browse the craft shop!  So it could be half-term before I get there.

Anyway, here's the finished stitching.  Is the wide eyed kitty the cutest thing ever?

It's a freebie from Silver Cute Dwarf's blog.  It's actually quite big and wasn't an easy stitch, there are lots of vertical and horizontal stitches rather than 3/4 fractionals which made counting tricky.  There's alot of stitching hours in this one!

Next month is the cat so there's lots of choices there.  I'll be back on the 1st with my decision.


  1. Yes, the cat is adorable, and I love the disgruntled-looking pumpkin, too! Congrats on the finish!

  2. How cute cat ;)
    Lovely ornament!!

  3. What an adorable finish Jo! Would make a cute wall-hanging.

  4. What a cutie! You did a great stitching job on this!

  5. Very cute kitty and such a wicked pumpkin -- great job!
