Challenge Finish 13

Good morning everybody!

I'm taking advantage of my daughter being out to use her laptop again. Hopefully I'll be finished before she returns and claims it back!

I have met my mini July target of completing another 2015 Challenge piece and was surprised at which one it was. I'd only intended to stitch the second cat but just kept going until only the backstitching was left. And what was the point of leaving just that? So I carried on until completed.

Cookie and Cream
Featured in The World of Cross Stitching issue ???
Stitched on 16ct Cream Aida 2 over 1
Stitch Count 73 wide by 68 high
Started - 16th January 2015
Finished - 20th July 2015
Total Stitching Time - 23 hours 45 minutes

Like all of my pieces so far I really enjoyed this one, especially watching the backstitching bringing the little kitties and the milk bottles to life. I think it's rather sweet. How soppy!

Now to try to stitch on four more Challenge pieces before the end of July.

13/59 Challenge pieces down, 46 to go!

I'll see you soon,
Rachel x
