Jo's May Finish - Black Cats

I've been working on two different Hallowe'en designs this year.  The first is Happy Hallowe'en by Imaginating.

We have a sweet little black cat peering out from behind the N

Here is the whole piece so far:

The cat didn't take long so I started on the HAPPY letters

My second piece is Witches by Oberlin Samplers.  There is a cat on this one, but not a black cat!

I realised that DMC 3345 is the exact same colour as the fabric which is proving so hard to photograph.  So here is a picture with a skein on 3345 laid on it.  Get your skein and you'll know what colour the fabric really is!

May - Black Cat

I finished this up early because we're going on vacation next week.  This is a Homespun Elegance design from 2009.  Sadly, it looks like it has been discontinued.
