Kitty in a Stocking

Just to take a break from my usual stitching projects, I decided to stitch up this little painted canvas I had in stash.  I don't remember where I got it, but with the background I added, it is just 4-1/2" square.  I stitched the whole thing last week in about 3-4 sessions.

The kitty is Petite Very Velvet, V666 and V647.  The stocking is Mosaic stitch in red Neon Rays N20 with white cross stitches also in Neon Rays, N92.  The cuff of the stocking is in Arctic Rays, AR2 and AR8 and I really like the dimension it gives the whole piece, stitched just in long stitches. There's a little ornament in Kreinik gold & silver.  The "floor" is a large Brick stitch in Needle Necessities 128.  The background is a zig zag & alternates NN 1732 & 1121.

This makes a really cute little door hanger mounted in the Stitch A Gift thingy I already had.  The whole thing was done from stash!  Next time I have the iron out, I'll Stitch Witch the edges down!

This kitty is adorable! And I have a large orange and white cat who would love to climb into that bag as well.
