I threw all the names into a hat (no fancy number generators for me) and the winner is Lynsey! It was nice to hear from so many cat lovers, embroidery lovers, and people who haven't commented before. If there's one way to generate comments it's having a giveaway - got 'ya!
Even if you didn't win this time, I've got something for you. Click on the groovy 1960s kitty picture below and you can download a pdf copy from my website. Print out the pattern, transfer it to fabric, and start embroidering. It's a little more complicated than the stamped embroidery cats but nothing you can't handle. Mostly outline/stem and straight stitches with lots of lazy-daisies, some satin stitch (eyes, nose, mouth), and just a few French knots. You can save them for last just like I do :)
And speaking of cats, I'm still working on that set of kitty baby bibs. I've been so busy sewing sachets, wallets, and bags for orders that I haven't had any time for embroidery. I hate that! I definitely want to show them to you all and then get started on that apron. Several people asked if I'd show photos of it finished and I will. Promise.
Lynsey, send me your address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll get your kitties on their way.
