Embroidery Hippo - Work in Progress

This is my first attempt at embroidery :) if it all works out, it will be available soon at my esty shop.


This is one of my three cats, he's name is Salem and yes, he know how handsome he is ;) he's a little gentleman and always looks his best, I guess he can't help it! I made a little illustration of him and decided to do a cross stitch piece with it. Now I'm missing my crazy Lili, she will be coming soon...


This is Bosco, the sweetest cat in the world! He was living on my street when I first moved to my current place but of course in no time at all he ended up living here :) He has a genetic eye defect, his eyelashes grow inward into his eyes so we need to constantly keep his eyes clean, but he's been doing so much better ever since he has a home. Anyway, this is a cross stitch piece I made of him :)

DMC Rainbow

And I still feel like I'm missing lots of colors ;)


Organizing my fabrics and crafting supplies, pretty soon I am going to need to reorganize my home office area  into a crafting area, I just need to make time for spring cleaning...why are days only 24 hours?
