I finally finished one of my cat embroideries. I struggled with this one. For days on end I thought it just wasn’t going to work out. I believe that this project sets my personal record for stitches removed and colors changed.
All the orange diamonds make me happy.
And here’s the orange twin, awaiting its radiant glow. That out-of-focus photo of Emma is the inspiration for it all. She is 11 years old, and for 10 years I’ve been attempting to draw her tabby stripes and for 10 years I’ve been failing. Creative license is sometimes just an inability to draw one thing and substituting another.
