Second One Complete.....On To The Third.....

 So I started the Cat & Mat from a vintage Creative Circle kit. Remember them? If you were a needle crafter of the 80's?, I'm sure you must have attended at least one home party. Anyway I ran across a bunch of these Creative Circle kits at the thrift store, and couldn't resist this pretty kitty!
 However as you can see, I couldn't stick to the color scheme and instead came up with my own version, which is a little brighter. I have an idea for using the finished piece, but not for a picture, and while I loved doing it, there was a bit too much satin stitch. I tend to get bored easily, so in the end, It took a little longer than anticipated to finish, but finish, I did, yeah!
Now, looking for something a little different, I'm trying some Brazilian Embroidery. Brazilian Embroidery is a dimensional embroidery, and while it looks a bit challenging, so far it's proving to be pretty easy with some spectacular results!

I also forgot that I keep a small project in the car for when I have time between runs. That project, at the moment, is a small crewel embroidery bird. When I remember I'll try to get a photo of it too.

That's it for now.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
