Brittercup Kitties!

Hi there, my name is Cindy Mae and I have been invited to share my stitchings of cats and this wonderful blog.  I love cats . . . one of my favorite animals.  I have stitched several Brittercup designs and I will share a one that I stitched last year.  
Another of my favorite animals is horses!  When you get a horse and a cat together, that is just purrrfect. I stitched this Brittercup design and finished it last month.  One of my favorite pieces that I have stitched to date!  This one is called "Stealing Oats"..
Hope you enjoy these and I will be posting more soon!

Happy Stitching,
Cindy Mae

My Kitty Cross Stitch Collection!

Greetings fellow cat fanatics! 

My name is Gemma, and I've been kindly allowed to write a post for this lovely blog so thankyou for having me! 

First things first, a little bit about me. I live in the UK on the south coast with my 4 lovely cats and have a massive love for cross stitch and speciality stitch work. I've only been stitching for a year now and it keeps me happy and occupied. I've stitched a couple of cat patterns, and I'd like to share the finished pictures with you if I may.

Black and White kitten by Susan Ryder, Heritage Crafts
 I have a mad passion for Heritage Crafts designs- their crazy version of half stitches, straddled cross stitches really grabbed my attention when I started stitching. This little lass looks exactly like my Mum's kitten, Sox.

Meerkat, Mere-Cat by Peter Underhill, Heritage Crafts

Yup, another Heritage Crafts piece! This was actually the first time I stitched on evenweave and fell in love with this type of fabric. I framed this myself which was an amusing and delightful experience- delightful because I didn't end up in knots and it doesn't look too bad! 

Tabby Kitten by Susan Ryder, Heritage Crafts

Told you I have big love for Heritage Crafts ;) Who couldn't resist this little fuzzball- even though he looks like he has a bit of a squint (dodgy backstitching on my part)!

And, last but not least....

View Of The Garden by Nancy Rossi, Janlynn

Kitty Close-Up!
This is my latest finish, 12x12 inches on 14 count Aida. I have yet to frame it, and I will be giving it to my cat-loving grandparents. 

Well, that's all from me folks, thanks for letting me share some of my cat pieces with you. I am looking forward to seeing your completed cat pieces!

Hope you have a purrrrfect week (bad pun)!

With love, Gemma x x
