Today I have spent a couple of hours turning a "quirky cat" into a birthday card for the Craftbubble "Crazy for Kitties" birthday exchange. Tomorrow the quirky cat will be winging it's way over to the UK.
I stitched the design from a mini chart booklet that came with one of the "Cross Stitch Crazy" magazines - can't remember what issue though, sorry. The booklet is called "Best Ever Pet Charts" and has animal designs by Lesley Teare, Sharon Welch and Lucie Heaton. The one that I chose to stitch comes from the "Cheeky Chums" section of the booklet and was designed by Lucie Heaton. It is a rather quirky patchwork cat in yellow and blues and I thought it would be lovely quick design to stitch and turn into a card. It was quite quick to stitch and only took me about 4 evenings to stitch it. It took almost as long again to turn it into a card this afternoon! I'm not very creative when it comes to making cards so it takes awhile to think of what to do.... but I am quite pleased with the outcome.
