    The Cat and the Wisteria

    This started out as a little exercise in architectural features ( a door) and ended up with 5 gazillion French knots.
    But it should warm you up just looking at it. Thanks to the board members who passed on a few hints on doing all those knots..... And who doesn't love cats.

    I have yet to master a french knot. I bet you are a pro now! Love the subtle cat almost hidden amongst the thread play. I would have had trouble finding it if you had not posted the closeup!

    It turned out great! Your kitty looks like he is contemplating a trip up the wisteria vine.
