Anyway, I'm better now, and here's at last a pic of dear Crafty:
(as usual, you can see it in more detail if you click on the picture)
All the stitching in two strands is done, there remain the one-strand stuff... Backstitching and so on. But I usually enjoy this part!
I'm really happy about the Anchor colors. I did change the greens though - those required were too bright for my taste so I hushed them down a little; and I thought the yellow of the scissors was a bit more orange than yellow, so I took a ... "yellower" floss.
I have to say again I really love this design - it looks like a painting, with all the shading effects. The more I see them, the more I enjoy Margaret Sherry kitties, and I know I want to stitch a bunch more.
