    All Done with the Snow Leopard Cross-stitch

    All Done with the Snow Leopard Cross-stitch - February 2013

    Today I finished my Snow Leopard cross-stitch.  I placed the final stitch of blue on Thursday night, and today I finished the back-stitch outlining.  The cat looks a lot better with his whiskers!  They are almost as long as Whiskey Loopy's. Below is an animated GIF showing the difference that the outlining makes.  Give it a few seconds to load. The finished Snow Leopard cross-stitch measures over 200 stitches by …Read More


    So Close I Can Almost Taste It!

    So Close I Can Almost Taste It! - February 2013

    I'm almost done with my Snow Leopard cross-stitch.  I made major progress on it this weekend, when the cold windy weather kept me inside. This cross-stitch has been a wonderful distraction while I've had mono.  It's kept my hands busy while I couldn't get out and do my photography.  Now that I'm (finally!) starting to feel better, I'm anxious to finish it. I'm almost there…and as soon as I put …Read More

    Progress on the Snow Leopard Cross-stitch - January 2013

    Snow Leopard

    Snow Leopard - December 2012

    No, I'm not talking about a version of the MacOS, I'm talking about my new cross-stitch. Although I'd decided my next project would be one of my own designs, I fell in love with this cross-stitch design in the craft store. It's helping keep my hands busy while I wait for this stupid bug to go away. I'm so ready to be out and about again! It's hard to keep …Read More
