cat embroidery

I've finally resorted to posting from Flickr as Blogger won't let me upload any photos - is it just me?

My first stab at an embroidery from the cute Japanese book I impulse bought. I think the fur is meant to have that textured look - uneven length stitches - I'm sure there's a technical term for that.

But the eyes, the slightly satanic eyes, are all my own French Knot work.

So cute! And aren't they all slightly satanic eyes? Or maybe that's just the feline population in my house...

Oh I've got that book. But I haven't done anything from it! IF I did that cat, it would end up looking like a Persian cat that had been tumble-dried!

great kitty - those eyes are definitely the kind that follow you around a room! Technical probs seem to be the order of the day - I'm having issues too and I hate to be reminded of how dependant I've become on the computer!Good luck - hope it gets sorted soon.
