    Hi everyone,
    I finished this up yesterday with the edgings of quilting fabic. I have never had a little tabby like this, but I had to make it like a tabby. (The pattern showed a black kitty.) This one is for my nieces birthday.

    Isn't she cute? "Those wild eyes like I will get you now!" LOL!

    Here she is getting the yarn!

    Oh, how cute! I love the playful kitty. I hadn't thought about embroidering a pillow case, but I remember now some vintage ones that my MIL and grandmother had. Thanks for sharing.


    I remember the tea towels, (we called them kitchen towels back when???) I embroidered with kitties with the days of the week.

    I have a state bird quilt I started for my mother years ago that was embroidery. I need to get it out and work on it.

    Did you hand embroidery or machine? It is soooo cute just love it. I remember years ago lots of people did those kind of things. :)

    Thanks everyone! I like to have something while watching tv to do.

    skydiver ... I have a few of those tea towels in my kitchen drawer rignt now. I love them ... Mom did them when she was alive. Yes get it out and finish it. I would love to see it!

    Cheryl ... This is done by hand. I have a set of pillowcases with mermaids I am making for my sis who lives near the beach. She is going to love them!

    Thanks so much! You girls are so right! I have always embroidered since I was a littel child. It is so relaxing. Although, I think my favorite is redwork.

    Sure! They aren't finished or laundered like the kitty but, here is the set ... I am going to put some eyelet or cluney lace on the ends.

    Sorry about the pictures and shadows. But, you get the idea. The blue scallops goes all around the pillowcase.

    Finished the handwork so far...

    Aww. I have this same kitty that I want to put on a pillow case for my daughter. Only she can't decide what colors she wants me to use. Maybe once she sees yours she will decide. Your pillowcase came out really cute.
