I am finally getting round to showing you my own chart creation, that I charted back in July 2021, just before my darling Bengal cat called Freya passed away.

I started the chart on July 29th 2021

There are 122700 stitches in the design.  I am stitching it 4 over 1 on 22ct Hardanger fabric, using DMC floss.

I am currently on 38% complete and have stitched 46424 stitches so far.

I was hoping to have it completed by the anniversary of Freya’s passing on the 9th August but sadly at the moment I haven’t been working on her as I had hoped.  I could still manage to meet that date but I currently need to stitch 654 stitches every day to meet that deadline.

Here is the picture I used to chart the design.  I charted in Winstitch cross stitch design software. Alongside where I currently am today.


Here’s my needle minder, a cute fairy door from Tickety Boo Clay Crafts.
