I am DETERMINED to finish Leaping Cat this month. I had set aside other things toward that goal. I have completed the date of 2019 to cement my commitment!
Now that I’m done with the grass, the 2 over 2 on the 36 count is not so terrible. It was hard to deal with in the “thick” areas, and when I was using a bigger needle. Now with the smaller needle, putting in all the leaves, the apples, and the border, it is going better. I don’t feel like I am slogging through it anymore. You can see what needs to be done, plus there is a simple black line border around the entire thing which I will stitch in hand once everything else is there.
I will say I still love this pattern and think that cat is adorable. My own old kitty is an orange tabby but hasn’t done any leaping in a while. Have I ever shown you Kiwi?
Anyway, Kiwi is 18 and suffers from old age issues (but she is still going along cheerfully) and though I will not make her a memorial piece, this will help me remember her when she’s gone.
