A new embroidery book of motifs came into the library this week and the pattern of a cat sitting on an armchair on the cover caught my eye. The book A Rainbow of Stitches: Embroidery and Cross-Stitch Basics Plus More Than 1,000 Motifs and 80 Project Ideas has a good amount of critters in it to try.
I stitched this orange cat tonight onto a piece of quilting cotton fabric while watching The Tourist. His name is Cromwell and he is stitched in a combination of two different orange threads. I like to think he's either an enormous cat on a regular sized armchair. Enormous cuddly orange regal cat.
