Edit September 2013: Scanned the image. :) Updated and clean. Hopefully you don't notice any seams as this had to be done in four parts. Apologies for this original description below, the original submission was on a bad day. ;)

This is the Cats Cats Cats sampler, it's from a Janlynn kit. The kit includes the option to replace the cat in the center with the photo of a kitty. Finished this a few months ago but never got around to (ironing or stretching) scanning it. Been sitting around my room getting moved and gathering dust.

Didn't add some of the text. Recentered other parts. Edited some of the positioning. Used beads instead of french knots. Used tiny ones to fit the scale better, bigger blue ones for the font. Always bothered me about these patterns is that they don't give so many of the kitties whiskers.

The tiny cats in the upper left freak me out.

Color Total: 26
Size: 11 x 14 inches
Time: 168 1/2 hours
Bead Colors: 3. Size 11 blue, size 15 white and black.
Bead Total: 99
14 Count white Aida

Oh my gosh! :iconblushplz: You're so kind, thank you!
I can't take all the credit for this design though, the original is by the Janlynn company (not sure if they credited their original artist) and I just made some modifications as I went to edit placement and some minor tweaks here and there.
I hope when you do some pieces that you'll post them here on DA for us to see. :)

:dance: It took a lot of time to do all the sections, haha, but worth it. :D

I can see why!  And it's gigantic, so that probably didn't help :D

Oh wow - I hadn't seen this yet, it's great - I could only find the one seam line by seriously enlarging the photo and even that's mostly invisible so I can honestly say that you did an awesome job joining the bits together :)

Thank you so much, I'm glad to hear it came together so cleanly. :D I had to re-scan the upper left house a lot of times before the alignment looked proper, haha. :hug:
