I've gotten quite a bit farther one the first kitty, shouldn't take to much longer to get all of the cross stitching done, then I'll do the back stitching after! Figured I would completely finish each one before going on to the next. Well ok finish stitching but wait to cut them all out until the end. The only complaint I have on this kit so far is that the string they gave me doesn't fully match whats on the package! The aqua on the package is so much lighter then what they gave me. I'm thinking of switching to a different color for the rest of them, it's to bright/ dark for shading the white. Don't even have to go and buy any thread because I bought extra for my snowman which is by some bit of a luck a much lighter aqua. Lucky or what?
I also did more gold thread and had an easier time at it just need to keep it as tight as possible!
