Cross Stitched Creations

Well I have finished two cross stitches over the weekend and done some more on my fish tank.

The first of my finishes was a free cover kit from Cross Stitch Crazy in Nov 2012 and is a Margaret Sherry cat. I do so love Margaret Sherry animals and do not often get to stitch them due to the long period of time she spent contracted to Coats (Anchor) - I much prefer DMC!
However, here is the little guy after 6.75 hours.
I want to enter this for two 'Animal Antics' challenges - it is not a card but is hand crafted :) - Open-minded crafting and craftycalendar.

The second finish was this kitty by Dimensions ''. I did not time how long this one took, but it was a Christmas present two years ago and I am glad I have finally got it finished. I already know which kit is my next one! This is going to be made into a cushion eventually for my currently non-existent craft room.
I am going to enter this into a couple of anything goes challenges: SimonSays Monday and Crafty Cats

Finally, my fish progress. Another hour has been added to the progress on this - with a little more blue! This takes the total time to about 39.5 hours.

Thank you for reading
