Time to Return to Egypt

I started stitching one of Tapestry Fair's Egyptian animal pieces in 2013. Doesn't you think it is time I finished Catra?  In case you are interested, here are the three Egyptian animals in the series--Bastet the Cat Goddess and Cleo's Cat (that's my canvas) and Pharaoh Hound for dog lovers.

Basat has a stitch guide from Ruth Schmuff as this canvas was one of Ruth's mystery classes.

Tony Minieri has done a guide for Basat as well.

Ruth's also done a stitch guide for Pharaoh Dog.

Now, should I finish the lotus fans or start work on the cat's body...?

Decisions, decisions!

  1. My vote is to work on the cat next. From what I can see on your blog background, all the stitches you've chosen so far look perfect for this piece.

  2. I think you should stitch like the wind and do some of the fans and some of the cat!

  3. Ok, I'm working on the cat AND the lotus pillars. You two are slave-drivers!

  4. Alternate? Cat one day, lotus the next? Whatever makes you happy!
