Good news – I have finished my first proper sized cross stitch project! I’m feeling very proud. It took me just over two months and although having such similar browns drove me mad at times, generally I enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to doing one with more colours in next though! Also not really sure if I like the backstitching effect on this one but it looks OK. I was tempted to use white for the whiskers but decided to stick to the design in the end. Here’s a picture of the final piece and a close up view:
I’m not sure what to do with it now, was thinking of donating to the local Cats Protection but feeling kind of attached to it seeing as it’s my first! Need to find a frame for it next really, although I’m not sure where to get one from.
