This is a painted canvas (OMG! ) called Purrfect Spring by Dee Ross. I purchased the canvas several years ago from one of the destash sites. It came with lots of threads too!
Last month I decided to use this canvas to participate in Stitcherie's 2015 Stitching Games.
For January, I did the green leaves at the top in #5 pearl cotton.
For February, I stitched the brown kitty. There wasn't any thread in the bag that came with that seemed right, so I used some Appleton tapestry wool from stash. Awful stuff! I would never use it for anything but animal fur - it is very coarse and inconsistent in thickness, and a bit hairy, but it did brush up nice which doesn't show in the photo. That said, it is very old and newer Appleton may be better, I don't know.
Progress to date:
P.S. Did you notice I finally got the new picture up for my header?!! Now that I know how to do it, maybe I can change it with the seasons.
