Calico Cat by Dede Ogden is finished! I finally took out the "floor" I had done before and redid it. I think it looks more like a floor now, instead of a wall.
I worried over the background for weeks and finally came up with this one. I wanted little Christmas Trees, but anything that really looked like a tree was too big. I think the green in the background should have been more muted, but it's OK and we're sticking with it! Actually, it is the same thread I used for the wreath, but in the wreath it appears more faded. That's what I get for scanning instead of using the camera. But it'll do for now.
Eventually this will be made into an easel back stand up. I have one more of these little cats to do first, then both will be finished together, with the same backing & trims.
