My mother has asked me for a bookmark for Mother's Day. I have been searching for the ideal design for her bookmark. I decided to stitch a meerkat since we both like "meerkats". I pulled out my chart from my stash bin and I have been stitching since this morning. The fabric is 28ct white, evenweave using DMC threads. I have to stitch from the top to bottom due to the factional stitches, squashed stitches and middle X stitch, etc....so to avoid making mistakes, I do each row at a time. I hope to finished this before the end of April.
