Primitive kitty

This is my version of the little primitive kitty project featured in the new book, Miniature Punchneedle Embroidery: Simple Techniques Beautiful Projects by Linda Repasky. It's a must-read (or must-have!) if you're interested in this type of needlecraft. The book is very well written, has outstanding photos for visual learning, and is just chock-full of useful information. And check out these pretty hand-dyed cotton threads, Wildflowers by Caron. I was recently turned onto using them for pne. The kitty and border were worked using these. The background is 2 strands of cotton embroidery floss.
Now, back to rug hooking.

Hey there B!

This definitely fits in my PDC category (Pretty Darned Cute). Linda's design is great to begin with, but I really like the colors you picked and you know I like that Caron's thread. this came out great.

I wish I could get back to rug hooking myself. Maybe soon.
