l got an email at the beginning of March inviting me to join in a stitch along experiment with Penguin & Fish.  I was sent their Crafty Cat and Knitty Kitty pattern outlines from their new Here Kitty Kitty collection, without any instructions. I was asked to interpret it as I wished!

Of course, I decided to base my embroidery on my beloved Maple!  I used free hand machine embroidery onto two layers of unbleached calico.

I changed a few designs elements to fit more with Maple’s personality!  I gave the cat a collar and made her quilt portray her favourite mouse toy! Maple slept on her cushion behind my machine which came in useful when stitching her fur! I decided on a red and pink pallet to try and not overpower the pattern with colour.

I think I’m going to get a couple frames for these and put them up in my very bare kitchen!
