Edward Gorey ballet cat, a photo by xsilverdaisyx on Flickr.
I made this as part of an Illustration Stitchalong on Flickr - it's based on a drawing of a dancing cat by Edward Gorey. I continued with my tea dying adventures for the backing cotton, most of the stitching is done in split stitch and random satin stitch to get a fur effect. I wanted to do one of his spookier drawings, but I didn't want to put myself under too much pressure time-wise. Besides, I love kitties and ballet...
