Waiting for Christmas

I couldn't resist taking advantage of the lovely free cross stitch chart Margaret Sherry posted on her new site. I can't wait for the new patterns coming in 2012. But for now, I'll have to satisfy myself with this adorable kitty waiting for Christmas.

Both cats were stitched over two strands on a 32 count Belfast Linen in cream. The top one that's been made into a tree ornament I'm going to be keeping for myself. The bottom one, placed in a sparkly red stand-up frame will be a stocking stuffer for my mom, who is also a major cat person.

Sorry the second one is looking a little blurry. To get the pictures I set these on my scanner and since the second kitty is recessed a bit in the frame, it comes out a little blurry. I assure you in real life he's quite clear, and adorable!

Happy Holidays Everyone!
