The Cat Has Whiskers

That was the defining line between Mike and me because he had trouble determining whether my High Hopes by Just Nan was completed. Hence, the cat whiskers were the last stitches I put in. Now finally, after more than a year (I first post a WiP pic in July last year), it is done!
Design: High Hopes
Designer: Just Nan
Fabric: 28 count Silkweaver Opalescent Solo Lugana
Fibers: DMC
Embellishments: Just Nan Handpainted Bird Bath Charm JNC37
Unfortunately, the photo isn't the best. I've actually finished it last weekend but the sun has been all but hiding the past few days. It wasn't until yesterday evening did I get the opportunity to take some photos what with work and all. The close up photos does look better though.
It's amazing that there is so much going on in a design this size. Check out the spiderweb and the spider hanging in a corner along with the over one ladybugs.
The beehive with bees buzzing around the flowers collecting honey.
This lucky little mouse has been totally ignored by the cat next to him...
...Because the cat's undivided attention is on the star of the piece... The blue bird on the bird bath in the middle of the garden.
Once again, thank you all for stopping by. After finishing High Hopes, my needle has not been idle. I've been stitching on Mirabilia's Garden Verses. This is my first Mirabilia and I'm really enjoying it so far. I hope to have a WiP pic soon. Take care and happy stitching!
