Yes Crafty's finished, and I even just washed it! (I love laundrying my finished projects, don't you? It feels sooo rewarding... )
The couching was a PITA. Not really difficult, but tedious. That being said, I still think it was a wonderful idea to include this in the design, it renders - or rather, creates - the mess of threads so well!
This kitty took me way longer than I had expected. Not because it's hard to stitch - quite the reverse! - but because I've been soo busy with my work. I could only afford to devote a little time to Crafty, every other evening or so.
Never mind, Crafty's fully alive at last, making its mess with threads, just as any cat may do! Seb loves it. I intended to hang it over my "crafty" corner, but he wants it hung in the bedroom so we can both enjoy it!
