Now, much as I love Furio he can be a naughty kitty cat. Here he is sleeping peacefully on my knee whilst I do some blogging and stitching.
A few minutes later I got up to make a cup of tea and I dropped my skein of Cottage Garden Thread on the floor. One minute later I found it looking like this:
Furio thought it was for him to play with! It should look nice and neat like this one:
Who could have thought that this sweet little kitty cat could be such a devil??
The thread which Furio messed up I am using to make a special gift for someone (can't say who, it is a secret!). I am stitching "here lie my needles" using hand-dyed Cottage Garden Threads in Raisin. The colour shading moves from a salmony-pink to a grey-purple. It is being stitched on the same dusky pink fabric which I stitched my Giveaway piece on. I have also changed the year from 1692 to 2012. I would love some input on how you all think this looks. Do you think the shading works?
Have a nice day everyone.
