I have admired the stitching of Nicole of Follow the White Bunny for quite a while and decided to play along with her newest stichalong project for a Cat Portrait. She does beautiful stitcheries and I hope to learn quite a bit with this project :)
I have purchased her Cat Portrait Stitch Guide and have chosen my photo and a floss palette for Miss Kittykitty so I am well on my way!!
This is the picture I am going to use, I think...I had to lure her to sit still with some quilt blocks, my Kittykitty loves to lie about on quilt blocks!!
This was my other photo choice but there just doesn't seem to be enough contrast with this one to make for interesting fur stitching...and she looks crabby, not much for photographs, this lady.
She was quite a fan of helping me pick DMC floss from my stash that matched her fur...oh yes, that was a nice game, indeed!! I found it surprising that my ginger cat is actually more reddish brown and gold than orange and I found several shades that will be good for her nose and ears and the other bits that are more white into grey.
Anyone going to join in? It starts officially next week, I think.
