Happy Dance - Kiri the Cat

Cross Stitch Card Shop #78
Started: 4/24/2015
Finished: 4/30/2015

This was a free cover kit, but I substituted 14-count white Aida for the enclosed Aida.  I used the enclosed floss, but ran out of the dark grey so finished up with 535.  I also substituted regular cross stitches for the french knots.

This is a square for Kyleigh's quilt.

Happy Dance - Sunbonnet in the Garden

Cross Stitch Card Shop #78
Started: 3/15/2015
Finished: 4/24/3015

I stitched this on 14-count white Aida with the called for DMC floss.  I left off the words and added the border instead,  I also backstitched the flowers with the flower floss color instead of using 321.

This is the first square for the 2015 Challenge at Quilts for Older Children and Adults.  This is a year long challenge where if you stitch three different squares using the available themes, you receive some floss.
