Sleeping Kittens

Counted Cross-Stitch

I have framed and placed this in my stitching area. It is so soothing to view as I work.

This is a Dimension counted cross stitch kit called Feline Love.

Worked size is 7 x 5 inch, stranded cotton supplied in the kit.

Soon as I saw this design I thought of our lovely Holly (grey kitten) and Nick (sandy kitten).

This is stitched in 1-3 strands, half cross stitch.

Three major alteration I made:

1) less outlining than the design showed.

2) a black bullion body for the right butterfly
3) a double wrapped around three short straight stitches for the thicker body of the left butterfly.
