I did this for my daughter as we use to have a kitten who looked like this. It was a bit difficult as I did it on 14 count and there was loads of 'squashed' stitches- if I were to do it again I'd use evenweave. I finished it on 17 January 2013 but started it in 2012.
I did this for my daughter-she didn't want the rosette on it-just liked the idea of having the 2 dogs. I started it in 2012 but finished it thurday 22 January after 19 hours and 59 minutes of stitching during 2013 (I didn't time myself during 2012). I'm hoping to make it into a cushion.
I completed this on 25 January 2013-it took me 2 hours and 3 minutes to stitch. I put it into a keyring
I completed this on 28 January from Cross Stitcher
