I finally finished "Wings" yesterday - yipee! This design did take a little bit longer to stitch than I had hoped - not all down to my slow stitching. The issue with this pattern, which I didn't notice til I started stitching, was the original printing of the pattern. The detail in the design didn't always match the symbol legend so it did take some nutting out in places to get the colours right, and even then I'm not sure if they were right!
I also modified the design slightly by adding the little butterfly on the left and changing around the flowers. I also didn't stitch all the flowers as doing so would have made the design too big for the specified square dimensions.
Overall I am quite pleased with the result. Now I just need to wash and press it, and then pop it in the mail to the Quilts 4 Kids team.

I also managed to spend a couple of hours on my February MS cat last night - I will now finish him off either today or tomorrow and then it is onto the next quilt square for Quilts 4 Kids. I will be stitching Winnie the Pooh for Alexis W. Quite looking forward to stitching a Pooh design.
Ok, so where is the kitten playing... I have finally managed to get a photo of Felix playing before he spotted the camera and took off! While I was sitting in the study this morning he came in and started playing with the cord from the venetian blind and was jumping around on the window sill trying to chase the leaves that were blowing around by the front door. He was having such a lovely time amusing himself until he saw me take his photo and then he was out of here! Oh well.....
