Progress updated and still going slow due to color of fabric and stitching each X before moving on to the next square. But interesting design.

I just finished stitching this Siamese Cat Bookmark from Jill Oxton's magazine. I was thinking about my sister who passed away 3 years ago from cancer and she used to have Siamese cats for most of her life. When she left, she had 4 Siamese cats at the time. So I was in the mood to stitch a bookmark in memory of her.

I decided to switch over from 25ct to 28 ct 2 over 2. It will be 56"H by 46" W when done. My eyes were becoming sore and I think I was straining them after stitching over an hour on 25ct one over one. The last straw was when I made an error and I was unable to frog the thread without damaging the fabric on 25ct. I am enjoying stitching on this fabric so far.

I will be stitching this SanMan 4 seasons into a bookmark. I just have the backstitching on the months left to do. Each corner of the bookmark will have a different charm from the button company. ( acorn, bee, flower, snowflake) I have learned that it is very difficult for me to stitch on a dark fabric. This is 28ct dark grey, Cashell linen.
