Ginger Cat - CSC

Design: Ginger Cat
Designer: from Cross Stitch Collection magazine
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 28 count linen

This was my first attempt at a thread fob, following encouragement from other bloggers - notably Karen, who now has this little fob as part of a private thread fob exchange we did. I need to post a picture of the other fob I made, but I'm working through the backlog so if you want to have a sneaky peek (and to see what she stitched for me) pop on over to her blog - it's worth it for her other stitching stuff too :o)

The design had hung around in my finishing pile for ages - although it's done over one, it was too big for to fit into a pre-made key fob, too small (not enough spare fabric) for a scissor fob - but just right for a thread fob! It felt a little odd at first using a hammer as a needle work tool (to get the eyelet closed) but I'm hooked now...
