i was up 'til the wee hours finishing off this guy...it was a canvas from a vintage kit i found in a thrift store with no floss, so i had to use my judgment on what "light brown" meant in relation to tan and medium brown and etc.  the directions were hilarious, too--i've never had a kit so mean!  it kept saying things like "if you don't do this JUST RIGHT you're going to screw up the whole thing and might as well not even try!"  apparently elsa williams was a strict taskmistress!

i'm not sure i did it "just right", but i was pleased that it came out as well as it did, lack of sleep and overabundance of carpal tunnel and all.  i can't believe how much longer it took me than i expected!

i backed it with some printed linen i had around that seemed like something my mom would like that would blend with her other stuff...

OMG I just love that!
And the mean instructions are too funny. You definitely didn't screw it all up, even if it's not "just right".

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??

Gorgeous!  My neighbor when I was a kid had that same exact pillow, and also a second one with the same cat in a different pose.   This was around 1973 or so. Smiley  I always loved that pillow...  so cool that you rescued a vintage kit and helped it reach its highest purpose in life. Wink

Very nice, the colors are "just right" for that kitty.  I love that the whole cat isn't outlined.
