irish kitty WIP
Or should I call it Irish kitty and frog? I spent last night frogging on this. I had a bad night at my part-time job--we had a rental, which is always "special" (the theatre is historic and it makes my eye twitch when I see how some of these groups treat the space), one of my co-workers was being a pain, and my sinuses are acting up. I probably shouldn't have been stitching, but I did it anyway. And so I frogged.
It won't be the first, it won't be the last, and it was all fixable, so no harm, no foul.
I apologize for the not-so-good photo. I'm stitching it on blue Charles Craft 14-count aida, but it's not as blue as the picture makes it out to be. I went back and forth about what fabric to use for this. Should it be a green, or a blue, or a cream or a khaki? I just couldn't find a green that went with the shamrocks, thought, and the neutrals would have just blah'd it out. I wanted a color to make the kitten pop and it really does pop off this. So do the shamrocks, so I'm pretty pleased.
I haven't quite figured out how I want to finish this. I initially thought as a cube, but now I'm leaning towards a tuck pillow. I don't know. I have quite a bit of St. Patrick's Day fabric that needs to be used up, but I'm not sure if people who make tucks would be willing to make it with this fabric. Maybe it would be better as an ornament, though. I'm not sure.
I hope everyone is having a pleasant morning. Enjoy the day!
