Fun Little Roberta's Cats

I finished this little tag last week. It's a free chart from Cross Stitch Happy~ There are also designs of puppy, rabbit and flower in this series, so if you haven't visit Cross Stitch Happy before, you are missing out!!

I fell in love with the cute design and beautiful colors of this chart the moment I saw it, and I knew I had to stitch this piece. I thought the idea of the yarn is just so clever!! I really had a lot of fun stitching it~

Pattern: Cross Stitch Happy "Roberta's Cats"
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 18ct oatmeal aida by Regency Mills
Size: 1.75" x 1.75"
Completion Date: 11-07-2008
Finishing Date: 11-07-2008

I had to change out the blue in the original design, because I didn't have the color called for in my stash. But I like how it turned out~ I made this for my friend Year; she loves cats so I know she will love this design~

Everything went smoothly when I was stitching this piece until I started to whipstitch..... I never though I would have a hard time whipstitching but I did... Note to self - NEVER use this aida fabric again if I plan on whipstitch it..... It took me like 2 or 3 hours just to whipstitch it close, and I almost lost my patience!!!! Luckily most parts turned out ok, but my fingers were very sore......

I also worked on Heart and Hand a little bit more, and managed to get part of the border done. It's slowly but surely making progress.....
