New participant stitching "Buttermilk Tabbies"


I'm new on this wonderful blog. I'm following everyone's progresses since last Summer and you have all inspired me. Since I've finished all my obligation stitching, I put now all my energies on finishing my WIPs. So, my name is Catherine Michelle and I'm from Quebec, Canada. I've 9 not too large WIPs to complete, but most of them are barely started.

I'm working now on my most advanced one: "Buttermilk Tabbies" by Julia Lucas. It's been published in Just Cross-Stitch in 2004. This project when around the world last Summer on a UFO RR. My intention is now to finish it. Hopefully by the end of January but more reasonably, by the end of February.
Title: Buttermilk Tabbies
Designer: Julia Lucas
Magazine: Just Cross-Stitch (June 2004)
Fabric: Antique White Monaco (28 cnts)
Size: 122W x 122H
WIP Time: ~ 35 hours

It has been a UFO since the Winter of 2005. It felt in the UFO basket because I've started participating in exchanges and RRs at that time. As I don't have much time to stitch, these obligation stitching activities, if very fun, kept me from my own projects. So, I decided that in 2010, I would stitch for me. As I don't rotate my projects, I'll stitch on the Tabbies until it is finished. Usually, I stitch between 20 and 30 hours per month. I estimate that the Tabbies are about halfway done.

Hi Catherine, welcom to the blog. Loving the look of your tabbies stitching, I'm a bit of a cat addict so love anything with a stitched moggy. Look forward to seeing the progress.
