A new addition to my Gallery.

My friend Sharon discovered this in one of her favourite opshops, and told me about it. I didn't get there until a few weeks later, and fortunately it was still there. I bought a few other things as well, and the shop assistant must have got a bit flustered, because she ended up charging me about $4 for this! I have done one of these Black Cat designs myself, and have two more charts waiting to be done. This is not one of them, but I just had to have it on my wall with mine, even though I haven't stitched it. The Embroiderer has worked it beautifully, but the frame has been knocked around, so I will probably have it reframed one day. This is the one I've done:

Gina, I love the piece that you stitched, and what luck to find another one at a second-hand shop. I have stitched a few of these ones and have several others in my stash to stitch one day. I haven't been blogging of late but have been keeping up to date with your blog and have set up a blog for myself again. I would be interested to see how your indian is coming along.

What a great find, and such a bargain! I love the touch of red on the one you stitched. They're both so cute!
