Home Is Where the Cat Is

January 14, 2010

This is a project I stitched up years ago, in 2004. I think I bought the cross stitch kit at the Walmart by Ocean City, MD to entertain me during a beach week with Bill’s parents. For whatever reason, I never got around to the finishing. I even had the fabric. But all things happen for a reason.

I was finally motivated to finish this project as a Christmas present for Gran. Gran is keeping Harrison (Bill’s cat) permanently. We miss him, but he’s good company for Gran and I think Harrison is happier being a single child. Plus, we do have visitation rights. Anyhoo, I finally had a reason to finish this project.

It’s the first cross stitch that I made into a pillow, and the first pillow that I did with piping. Lots of firsts. I think my piping skills have room for improvement, but I’m happy with how the project turned out. Very happy actually, and that’s saying a lot. Here’s another picture.

It was a fun project to work on, and I was happy to give it as a gift.
