"" Moments with Moreen: Petit Chat

Petit Chat


Another finish  - Tralala free Petite Chat, I decided to stitch it in DMC black on this 32ct Natural linen which I think is a lovely contrast but I didn't realise it would be so difficult to match a fabric for the back so I have used the natural linen and embellished it with a scissor pocket and some hearts taken from the chart.

I used a very narrow black ric rac on the sides of the pinkeep.   I like the look of the narrow edging.

I then got carried away and made a scissor fob and a pincushion to finish it as a set.



I must say I am really pleased with how it has turned out.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you like my little black cat.

Absolutely stunning! You've made me want to stitch something using only black - it looks so classy. I love how you have displayed some of your finishes using Royal Albert's 'Old country Roses' - a timeless classic!
