Kitty progress

They're coming along

I had the day off yesterday to use up some of my vacation, and, after I went to the bookstore to get my UK magazines, and then went to the used bookstore to pick up some reading material, I turned on my clip-on lamp and went to work. I managed to almost finish the calico on the right (it just needs a leg and its ear finished), and started on the orange tabby next to her. I'm also trying to work on the barn itself as I move across. I figure it will be much less of a hassle to work on that as I go than to try to do it all at once, at the end. I don't like this aida, though--it frays like a mother, and there isn't a lot of framing margin. I wonder, do framers see Dimensions kit finishes come into the shop and curse to themselves? I think I would.

I'm working today, but off tomorrow. I'm hoping to make some more progress on it. I'm trying to decide if I should go to my LNS, too, but not too sure if I want to do that. I have some framing to drop off, but it's a long drive. I don't know yet.

To answer your question, yes framers do groan when the dimensions kit finishes come in. There are ways to get around the problem though so it's not as bad as you think, just more time consuming.

Have fun on your day off!

The fabric may be annoying but the kitties really pop on that color. Looking forward to seeing that one finished up.

Gee, you really did put a lot of time into them! They look great Rachel :o)

Happy Easter!
