2017 Smalls Stitch A Long - December

This year I planned to stitch the calendar cats for the Smalls Stitch A Long (free charts at Happiness is Cross Stitching).  This month is December and the project finish. Originally I planned to make individual ornaments, but as the months went by, I decided I like how they looked together.  The backing, sleeve, and binding are all the same cat fabric.  I had three Mill Hill black cat buttons, so I added those and a few hexagon cats.  I like it.
  










I'm linking up with Heather, at Stitching Lotus, the hostess of this stitch a long.

I agree that your cats look lovely as a sampler rather than individual ornaments. I wouldn't be able to cut them apart, either! Really adorable!

I like this wall hanging SO much. It is so much better to see the blocks together than in separate ornaments. It is just too cute.

Happy New Year,
xx, Carol

I was wondering how you'd finish those. I'm glad you kept them together - now they'll never be lonely, and they do look great!
