Peggie: Another Birthday Mini Cat

This is the first time when stitching a Birthday Mini Cat I didn't backstitch the balloons and envelope with black.  Not sure, but I think I prefer the black.  I also decided to use the floss from each colour balloon as the string to the envelope.  I may not do that again as some colours don’t show up as well as others.  My friend who I stitched this for loves the colour green so I personalized it for her.  She is from the Philippines and moved to Canada years ago and more recently to Quebec where we met in French school.  I had hoped to stitch down each side in smaller stitching two more birthday wishes covering all her languages, but Maligayang Kaarawn (Tagalog) and Joyeux Anniversaire (French) were too long, so I only used  Quebecois and English.

This was stitched on 14 count DMC Charlescraft Gold Standard Aida cloth and I used DMC floss


  1. Lovely work Peggie, I like the coloured balloons your friend will love this.

  2. How nice you have personalized this for your friend. The balloons and envelope are without the backstitch a bit softer,this suits with the colours. But...wíth backstitch would also be beautiful.
