Here's the second project I've been working on - edited for internet security!! I always stitch a small sampler at the end of term for the large boy's teacher/s. I try to make it tie with their special interests and this year the teacher made it really easy - she's a big Bagpuss fan! For my international followers who may be unaware of the saggy old cloth cat here's a useful link -http://www.smallfilms.co.uk/bagpuss/
The Bagpuss chart came from an old edition of Cross Stitcher magazine (Aug 2002) and the nice little border was from a more recent issue. Alot of people have been criticising the magazine just lately for being more about sewing and craft rather than straight cross stitch. Personally I would rather see more needlework if they want to diversify rather than sewing and felt craft. I have found there are less projects I want to stitch and the free gifts are not really me but it is useful as a "design library". This is not a very good scanned picture so doesn't do the patches justice.
