Notes on Meow Cross Stitch Pattern
I have chosen to stitch this pincushion using the DMC colors.
I don't have the MEOW pins, but the pattern does come with the little square of felted wool, so I'll put that on the top.
Is This a Beginner Friendly Cross Stitch Design?
I would say this isn't the most beginner friendly design. I've decided that because after stitching, you have to sew it into a pincushion. I haven't tried it yet, and so I reserve the right to change my mind about it as I go through that finishing process.
Goal for Stitching
I want to get this done this year, so I'm going to make it a focus piece for September. It's small enough that I should be able to finish it in September.
I am currently just a few stitches into the side panels of this, so not very far at all.
