Lime Cat in Strawberries ~cross stitch~ by snowyMelon Lime Cat in Strawberries ~cross stitch~ by snowyMelon
It's a piece for Stitching Pirates :iconstitchingpirates: Sailing The Fruit Contest!

I wanted to do something for first contest ever and got sick so had a lot of time - i found Lime Cat pattern here: www.jessica-tromp.nl/crossstit… , of course there are also Strawberry, Orange and Grape but I didn't have all their colours and couldn't get out of my home :( My Granny cross stitched A LOT of landscapes and flowers and there is always green in them so I had plenty of green to choose from XD
Then when i finished cat I read rules of contest and was like that : "O___O NO NO NO 2 PIECES OF FRUIT" and found another really nice pattern here: www.blackworkarchives.com/bw_h… but changed it REALLY MUCH.

So in the end I've used 2 patterns, combined them and changed both (I made cat 1 row wider to be more "chubby" and half stitches of 2 other colours to blend them better) and used my own colours like always :3 Strawberries and leaves are blackwork.. I hope they count as pieces of fruits. Small strawberry buds are french knots (yay for my first french knots!!).
For leaves and strawberries-inside I used 2 pieces of thread and then 3rd one in different colour to give them a little different colours (sprinkles for strawberries <3) and u can see it and my cute french knotties here in the detail close-up i've made: img833.imageshack.us/img833/17…



White leftover aida (that's why i don't know ct), 13 colours, 54 stitches height and 40 stitches width
