This is my very first attempt at cross-stitching ever. My friend got me started on it on a blustery winter day, then I took it to work on when I visited my parents that weekend, got stuck, and my Dad, for some reason, was able to figure it all out and got me back on track hahaha. So when I finished this, I gave it to him.
I chose and stitched this pattern specifically for a friend I was visiting this past summer. She loves cats and sewing, so this seemed perfect. I loved the simplicity of the black and white and the craziness of the border. This is probably my favourite cross-stitch project so far.
This is the first quilt I made, this past July. I did it one day, with a lot of help from my friend Rose. Before that day I had never touched a sewing machine, and had no clue about cutting fabric, seam allowances, bias, batting, binding, etc. Turned out pretty well!
