Two finishes to share.
Joy, a freebie by LK, stitched with DMC on linen from my stash. I found some cute fabric to back it with, so can't wait to get it finished. This was a superquick stitch. I started it last night, finished it just now. I got this from the Lizzie Kate stitchers group on Yahoo.
And my finished One Flag over Chessie, renamed to One Flag over Gussie, by Chessie & Me. I love tabby cat charts (along with bunnies, and horses and black cats, and everything else) and this chart has been high on my "to-do" list since my LNS kitted it up last summer;I am pleased with how my customizations turned out. The LNS changed out the stitched stars for buttons, which I am grateful for. I stitched his body color in Whiskey, and the stripes in the darker color called for in the pattern. His whiskers were supposed to be black, but my orange tabby doesn't have black whiskers, so these match my guy a bit better. I think Gus would approve of his stitched self! I want a patriotic-style basket of smalls and I think this will be so cute in there, probably as a pinkeep, but I may make it into an ornament so I have more choices of how to display it.
