Petals and Purrs by Cross Stitch Collection


When my mom first saw the cat in the magazine she fell head over heals for it.  Unfortunately we did not buy the magazine that day and when we went back for it, it was already gone... SOLD OUT!!  I was lucky enough to be a member in a forum and made a request for the magazine.  After anxiously waiting I got an email back with someone who was willing to part with it.

Today I present you the kitten finished.  I will be giving this to my mom on Mother's Day.  I will be taking it to the framers this Saturday.  I will update another picture when I get it back framed.  She will be SO happy when she sees this, it has taken 4 years to get this done for her!!
Design was pucbished in Cross Stitch Collection May 2006

A beautiful palette of creams and browns has been used to create a lifelike
appearance to the kitten's fur
