so I just got back into cross stitch a few weeks ago and I've been making all kinds of stuff.  I'm still working on a potholder for myself, but it's not finished yet.  it will be posted as soon as I'm done with it, of course.  but for now, I give you this:



I found the Maneki Neko sprite on some website (stupid me, I didn't save it) found it, used this website to make her name pattern (I found it using Wikipedia.  can you believe it??), then used my Japanese/English dictionary to make the "un" pattern.  that's Japanese for "luck" (that is what my dictionary states and it is a reputable one.  the website I checked it against says otherwise.  it's wrong, I'm right).  he's one stitch longer than the sprite that I used, but you'd never know it unless you studied both pictures.  I wasn't paying attention to where I put a stitch until I was on the opposite side of the pattern.  so I just went with it.  but like I said, you'd never know it.  I'm just anal like that.  Tongue

what do you think?

and very sore fingers and one thumb!  lol.  for some reason my left thumb always aches right at the knuckle where it attaches to the hand.  never have achy pain anywhere else.  then, my fingers are sore from poking myself with the needle.  maybe one day I'll develop a callus.  Cheesy

and thank you both.  it'll be hard to part with it.  he's just so cute!

I don't know why, but the pink shows up very light compared to real life and compared to the rest of the thread.  hmmm...
