It is finished!

The Bat on the Cat is finished!  I used Wisper and brushed the cat.  The collar is Kreinik and his tag is beaded.  I also added the gold beads in the sky.  Ready for the finishing pile!

Just the body

I finished the body with the Wisper but haven't brushed him yet.  Still have to do the tail, collar, and tag.

A bat, a pumpkin and a start of a cat

I beaded the pumpkin and used Straw silk for the stem.  I followed Jane's instructions and worked the Bat....he is pretty amazing!  Then I moved on to the cat.  I am changing him.  I have used basketweave and Wisper for the black and grey areas, Kreinik #4 overdyed Threadworx for the whispers and Kreinik #4 for the eyes.

No stitching

 I am painting my stitching a lighter color and have had hubby install a new LED overhead light!  I will soon be able to pull threads without having to run out to the sun porch to make sure they match!  When all of this mess--everything in the middle of the room--is back I will be able to get back to stitching!  Then in a few weeks, I will be having new carpet installed as well!  Back to trying to work  at the desk!

Cat & Bat

Cat & Bat by Debbie Mumm, DM55-D is a 14 inch round on 18 count.  Jane in Chilly Hollow had this on her blog and inspired me to add this one to my Halloween collection.  I will follow some of what she did with threads and stitches and change some to work this from my stash.
