After finishing up the row on Peacock Cypher I was at loose ends! It wasn't yet time to start the next block on Crabby and I can't bring myself to cheat; not even by a few hours! I remembered these little kitties languishing in my WIP box. The cross stitches were completed a couple of years (years! ~ OMG) ago and all they needed was a bit of backstitching to finish them off. Admittedly, Margaret Sherry designs have tedious backstitching but that's really no excuse, is it? These kitties are an Heritage Stitchcraft Coaster kit called Margaret Sherry 'Cats'.
Holly had a great suggestion for my dread of 'up-stitching' in the comments on my last post. Turn the fabric and pattern upside down and stitch down instead. I've heard about this technique before but never tried it. I think I'll give it a go. Thanks, Holly!
