Consumed by Gifts

There is something so special to me about Brittercup designs. Those sleek kitties that don't require a lot of stitching to get the effect are just so darn clever. I loved the colorful ornament in the JCS 2010 issue. It's stitched here on 32 ct bone Lugana with some DMC color variation substitutions. Finished with more hand-crocheted rick-rack.

What a cutie that little black kitty is, Annie. I stitched one of the Brittercup designs, too, but I accidentally got water on it and the black overdyed thread ran everywhere! Got most of it out, but I still know it's there and I never did finish it off...

Anyway--you did a beautiful job :)
