Stash Cats Complete

Stash Cats Complete

The Stash Cats are all dressed and the background is done BUT I will have to do more to the background.  I am just sick that my counting errorshas resulted in canvas holes enlarged that must be stitched in order for me to frame this piece and not just throw it in my stack 😦

If you look at the area between the large cat and her tail you will see the obvious mistake. I am taking this to my ANG meeting on Thursday and will get some ideas as how to increase the background.  I think it may be something as simple as adding a stitch on either side of what is already there.  It will take time but all the counting is done counting. Below is how the background is supposed to look.  I learned a big lesson the hard way with this project.  If I had thought about the fact that the background was on the diagonal I would have marked the diagonals the go through the cats before I began stitching.  It is very hard to follow a true diagonal across a stitched area.
