Siamese cat HD

Here's the second silk gauze kit I've done. The first was a black-and-white cat. I used a black background so the stitching will show up, but I'll probably use a different backing when I frame it.

I think I've gotten the hang of working with the silk gauze, so it didn't take very long to do. I started it yesterday and finished it on my lunch hour today. I still have a third cat to do, a grey one.

I'm probably going to work on an ornament for an exchange on the Needle and Thread BB, but of course I can't talk about that one. :-) I really do want to get back to working on The Awakening.

I think I'm going to ask for my two HAED quick stitches to be framed for my birthday. Of course, it won't be a surprise, but it's what I really want. I have so many unframed pieces right now, waiting for Matt and me to frame them (got the tools, wood, etc. to do it).

Matt went back to work today after his mom's passing. Poor guy.

Siamese is a beauty, as all of them are (I'm happy slave of one Siamese so I may be a bit biased), but let me say that I'm waiting for that moment when you will work with The Awakening... That is one stunning piece. o_O

It is beautiful and so tiny. I admire those of you who will work with silk gauze. Congrats.

Yay, your comments are back! I've been meaning to tell you that your kitty came out very nicely, your Awakening is gorgeous, and the Dragon Soul QS is now on my to-stitch list when I get off the wagon.
