Anyway, here are the pics :D
I ended up keeping the wooden embroidery hoop and using it as a frame, I love the look! It also kinda goes with the kitties fur.
Here's the back, I did reasonably well until I did the backstitching and I was so impatient to get it finished I wasn't as disciplined with making sure it was all tied togther! Still happy with the result.
So thats my first proper project done! What was yours? When did you feel like you'd become more of an accomplished stitcher?
