Doing the sleeping kittens took a little longer than I anticipated but they are finally done. It was very hard not to get frustrated when my stitches were obviously not the same length and I would have to take them out and start again. I even forgot a section of the first kitten and had moved on to the second one when I saw it. The reason the kittens were difficult to me is that they are so large. Luckily, I had the book by Wendy Schoen that broke the large areas into sections and gave a step by step diagram. That made it less overwhelming. Now I have moved on to the branches above the kittens now and hope that won’t be quite as frustrating. The attached pictures shows the progress and gives an idea of the overall project. Even though my stitches aren’t perfect, I am still excited to have made it this far!
