Cat With Clock

Those dire warnings about the weather continued all day Sunday. The plan was to stay inside and work on All is Calm, but I wound up finishing Cat With Clock instead.

I am absolutely smitten with this piece, especially when I lay it out with my three possible  frames. For a kit that only included nine colors, there's so much fun shading and detail. Did you notice the cat's shadow on the table cloth? And the flame in the lantern? 

This is the first of my Riolis kits that I've actually finished and it turned out that running low on floss was the least of my worries. I had extra, plenty of extra, of every color.

I'm going to give my eyes a bit of a break, then get back to All is Calm. Or maybe the hedgehogs.

Beautiful cross stitch! Congratulations on your finish!

That is darling. You get a gold star for your finish. I do see the kitty's shadow. Have you decided which frame you are going to use. I think the shiny, goldish one catches my eye and brings out the colors in the stitching. Any of them will work though.
