Kitten in a Red sweater

Fate made me stitch this one. I had just finished browsing the Love Quilts site to see what themes were available for current quilts. Nothing caught my fancy, but shortly after that I saw the DMC chart of the week and remembered the open quilt for Emily F. with a theme of baby horses, puppies and kittens. The stitching went faster than I expected. I usually get bored with lots of grays and stripes like this one has. The fabric is white, but my camera seemed to think it was blue. The design actually shows better on blue, but LQ requires a white Aida background. And, of course, the best part is that once it's stiched, I can just mail it away.. no need to do any finishing!

That is quite a sweet chart - and the subtle shading work wonders in the striping. I'm sure that will become a favourite square in the quilt. Well done!

Oooh I love this kitten, it looks so great!

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I love the States so much, because I was able to live there for one year and I miss it so much. I miss so many things from the States. I had such a wonderful time there. Now this summer we are going on vacation to Florida for 3 weeks and I'm really looking forward to it.
