If I said I'd stitched a Mummy Kitty what would you think of?

would it be anything like this?

This is for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL blog June choice, mummies or tombs.  I couldnt find a design that really appealed to me so I adapted one of the kitties from Carand88 into Mummified Kitty.

I stitched him on 28 count black evenweave using threads from my scraps bag so I'm sorry I don't have DMC numbers for them.  I stitched the outline exactly as charted for Frankenkitty then stitched the grey lines in an elongated stitch one thread high, two threads wide then just filled in with two shades of cream.  I used two because I didn't have enough of either to stitch the whole kitty!

He'll be framed along with these two I stitched last year and probably Zombie Kitty in the other space:

Evening stitching has been focused on my mermaid for the Large Mira Round Robin.  I have very nearly finished all the plain stitching.  The metallic is next, then the backstitch and finally the bling:


I can't decide what the pale piece in the centre is, it looks like a wing but she's a mermaid!  Looking at this picture it seems more like a big bow.  You can see how much bling there is going to be by the amount of blank areas.

Finally, don't forget the Summer Blog Hop on the theme of "There's No Place Like Home".  Just click on the picture on the top right of the blog for more details of how to join in.

Very good thinking on the mummy kitty - sweet! And the mermaid is beautiful. I'd agree with you that the "thing" is a bow or ruffle.

The mummy cat is cute - great idea. Love the colors in the mermaid and I'm voting for a ruffle but you are right, it looks rather wing like.

The kitties will be perfect in that group of frames! What a great idea! The mermaid is beautiful and instead of wings, it looks like seaweed flowing around her instead.
