A finish

This week has been one of those where you just feel everything is getting away from you. To feel a little more in control, and to destress a bit, I decided I needed something to do that would give me a finish. While I'm loving Six Bats, it was no where near being able to be a finish. After a bit of stash diving, which picked up my spirits, I decided on a fun SanMan Halloween design. Between playing in my stash, picking a fun Halloween design, and getting it done, I had a productive week. So, no new pictures of Six Bats, that will be back next week. However, here is my first finish of 2009. Fright Night, a SanMan design using good old DMC on 18ct Fiddler's cloth Lt. Oatmeal. The original didn't have the eyes for the bat or the cat face. However, I thought they looked a little to plain with no eyes or face so added them myself. I'm happy with how the bat turned out, but am thinking I should have made the cat's whiskers a bit longer. What do you think?

    I probably would have made the whiskers a little longer, but I think the kitty is cute no matter how long his whiskers! Great finish!

    I think the whiskers would look a little better if they were longer. But, it's a cute project the way it is too.

    Will you make it into a pillow?

    Your kitty reminds me of those tuxedo cats, the ones that have the white smudge around their nose and mouth. He's adorable adn I didn't notice the whiskers until you said something. Could they be longer? Sure, but I didn't notice it until you mentioned it so really unless you go around pointing it out, it would be fine.

    Very cute design! I like the touches that you added. I'll add my opinion that the cat's whiskers could be longer, but I think it's fine the way it is, too. Congratulations on the finish!

    What a cute finish..and ready months ahead of time! Unlike me, who gets seasonal things finished about a month too late.

    Great job Sue! I find that stitching a quick project gives you a much needed boost sometimes :o)

    I'd stitch them just a wee bit longer but that's just me!
