Nine Lives was title given to this piece by Bun Lamb Borrowdale, a spunky 92 year old gal. when she finished the stitching.
She only stitches on 18mesh as she prefers the detail. Each cat was stitched with a different thread to give unique character as you can see in the closeup.
I have a great group of stitchers in their 90s. They all have the same words of advice-stay active mentally and physically, learn something new everyday, don't be afraid of a challenge- oh yes and a bit of the bubbly is good for you.
I need to live a long, long time to stitch through my stash so I am going to heed their advice !
