The mini cat is my cute cross stitch design loved by many on my blog Happiness is Cross Stitching, many of you have taken him to heart and send me your completed photos of your completed mini cats, and I thought it would be nice for mini cat to have his own blog where you can post all your completed mini cat cross stitch!

Peggie: Time for Tea

This Time for Tea design was stitched on 14 count DMC Charlescraft Gold Standard Aida cloth with DMC floss.  I am putting a Tea-themed gift basket together for my sister’s birthday and will include this cross stitch. I know she’ll love it!

When I originally stitched it, I only used one thread for the back stitching and ended up back stitching over that that with another thread....that made a huge difference.  I don't think my photo captures how sweet it is in person.  This is the first time I didn't use a black frame with a Mini Cat; instead I selected a frame that matches the colour of the tea bag and I'm very happy with the result.


  1. Love your finish Peggie, the framing looks very nice, I like the way you matched the colour of the frame to the teabag!
