Contentious - DUCJC 2016 Finish 16/31

Hello All!

So finish number 16 of my 31 January starts has now been completed.

As usual she was an absolute joy to stitch, especially once I'd backstitched her face and eyes so that she could watch my progress. I'm impressed how Margaret Sherry never fails to get facial features spot on.

Here's how I left Contentious on 3rd January after just over 5 hours of stitching:

And here she is completed:

Featured in Cattitudes Calendar 2003 by Margaret Sherry
Stitched on 32ct Lime Murano evenweave 2 over 2
Stitch count 79 wide by 71 high
Started - 3rd January 2016
Finished - 20th August 2016
Total stitching time - 22 hours 45 minutes

For the time being Contentious will join her sister, Cantankerous, in my Box of Shame until I decide how I want to finish them. I hope it's not too long before I come up with a good idea as I definitely need them on display.

Next up, the Small's SAL on Thursday.

Happy stitching :)

These are great cats. And you are so correct- their facial expressions are right on time!

Looks great Rachel! I love those Margret Sherry designs.

Excellent finish. Is there another one that faces right? If there is, it could be a kind of triptych with all 3. This one on the far right since it faces left, Cantankerous in the middle, etc.

What a grumpy cat! MS is so good at her cats.
