I haven't been feeling too well lately & wish I could comment on all the gorgeousness this far! I will come back & comment later though!
When I pick up my son from school today, I'll be mailing out Kittykill's towel. She mentioned she'd be using the embroidery works in this swap to frame as wall art & decorate her office...so I was drawn to embroidering something really personal that she wouldn't get tired of looking at & would always be in style. I knew it had to be her doggers.
This is Kato & Lola...with the ball.
I just won't have time to add Jujube...another one of Kittykill's doggies into the design & make the deadline to mail out.
I totally fell in love with this photo on her flickr & didn't add it as a favorite until today in case she'd figure out what I was doing: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7528267@N02/2469951116/in/set-72157605191073455/
(if you're ever up for a personal swap Kittykill...I'll be game to stitch up Juju)
This piece is in the Southeast corner of her towel & measures about 8" x 8". I didn't get too fancy with the stitching...just basic back stitch, running stitch, split stitch, & a couple of french knots.
Sadly Kato passed away earlier this year & I'd been thinking of doing a memorial piece...unbeknownst to Kittykill. It was on the 'list' of crafts to do, but alas too many crafts & not enough time & I'm just so pleased that I could do this much!
I hope you love it Kittykill!
