The People Choose…Pets!

I’m taking part in Jo’s People’s Choice this month to highlight pet themed stitching. For me, that means cats.

Here is Kiwi, my last dear old kitty who died a couple years ago now at age 19! She lives on in my heart!

Although I don’t have any pets at the moment, until recently I had cats my whole life, and before children I also went through a period of serious fish-keeping. But I learned that aquarium fish are more a hobby than a pet, and if I were to have another pet I’d pick more cats! I don’t believe I’ve ever stitched a fish. Hmmm. May have to change that!

I have stitched a few cats in honor of my dear old cats over the years, I have this Mill Hill cat for instance…

And Leaping cat from La D Da. I am partial to orange cats because of Kiwi!

I also enjoyed stitching cats on these Drawn Thread designs because they remind me of my first cat when I was a girl, Minou, who was gray. I do like a good gray tabby with a white bib!

I changed the dogs to cats on the Pink Sparrow Sampler by Brenda Gervais. These are calico or tortoise shell kitties I guess. I really do like this sampler with cats.

Another little “cat and birds” project is this sweet pillow from Chessie and Me. I do think the Chessie and Me cats are sweet.

I have one more by her, and was glad to have pets be the theme this month because it reminded me my plan to finish this other Chessie and Me project:

My plan was to stitch the same design in reverse with an orange tabby and make it into a needlebook. I guess I know what I’m doing for my small this month!

Thank you Jo, for hosting People’s Choice! Head back to Serendipitous Stitching to see more pet inspired stitching!

  1. I do like the tiny over one birds in the Chessie & Me design, plus to way you have stitched the eggs in the nest with French Knots I assume. Lovely.

  2. Lovely Mary! I plan to stitch Pink Sparrow and I bet you know what I am going to switch those plain dogs to! 😉

  3. Kiwi looks a lovely cat, a great age too. Your cat stitching is,lovely, I really like your Leaping Cat Sampler.

  4. Thanks for taking part in The People’s Choice this month. I think cats were the run-away winners of the Most Popular Pet award!
    I like the over one cat watching the needleworker and that final giant cat. I do like an oversized cat in a sampler!
