New Start - Big Eyes Kitty by DMC

Hello fellow stitchers!

First of all, I have to say a BIG thank you to all the people who have visited my blog and left such lovely comments. I've had over 30 hits already and certainly feel inspired to carrying on blogging! I'm not sure if it's good enough but I've added a "Follow by Email" icon so that those who wish to keep up-to-date with my posts can. If you know of a better link to follow a blog please let me know!

I've been a bit of a naughty girl this week and started another project although, to be fair, there is space for it in my annual targets. Whilst setting up my Current Stash and WIP pages I realised that all of my current WIPs are fairly large and I really could do with stitching something smaller. The temptation was just too great, so after much pondering out came this little cutie. With only ten colours and 9,216 stitches I'm estimating about 60-70 hours work.

Progress so far has been quick as it's all one colour!

Started - 4th March 2014

I've decided to stay with "Misty" for another 10 hours so that I can finish stitching the dark brown background and make a start on her blanket. It's been a nice change to stitch a project where progress can be seen so quickly! See you soon with another update.

All the best and
Happy stitching! :)

Background can be so monotonous keep up the good work, I would love to see that kitten face!

I'm afraid you'll have to wait a little longer - the face will be the last thing I stitch!
