Here is a photo of crocheted kitty pieces. Why, you may ask, is this kitty in pieces? Well . . .
1. In my excitement to get this kitty crocheted, I skimmed over the assembly instructions a scootch too quickly. I went ahead and crocheted the limbs all the way to their tippy tops, and now find I should have stuffed all four paws before doing so. I fear I now need to start over with all four kitty limbs and do it the right way this time if those paws are to be perfectly stuffed. I knew better, as this isn't my first paw stuffing rodeo, and yet here we are - still in pieces.
2. Embroidery. I can crochet my way out of any situation, but say the word "embroidery" to me and I run screaming from the room. For some reason embroidery stitches are my undoing. I shall overcome this personal failing, however, because this crocheted kitty will need the sweetest mouth, eyes and eyebrows. Just the encouragement I need to finally learn how to embroider in a straight or curved line.
