Niggy’s Small Holiday Freebies ~ Happy Hanukkah / Merry Christmas

Happy ~ Merry from Niggy

Nigella Shadow (Niggy), our Tortiseshell cat, asked me to post her Holiday Season Greetings to all our stitchers, as she’s been tied up with floss, fabrics, and removing those tasty  sticky tabs from my pattern books.

Either of these designs, stitched on 20 ct fabric, could make a nice gift tag for another cat lover, or be used as the border on a special pillowcase … or in any number of other projects!

You might add silver floss, in place of one of the 2 blues used in her Hanukkah scarf, to be more appropriate and festive.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and Happy Stitching!

Remy & Niggy

P.S.  Niggy reminded me that I’d left off her whiskers!  She suggests that you add short white ones, like hers.
