|Catra is Finished!|
And here is "On the Nile."
There is also "Pharoah's Dog" for those who aren't cat people but who still love Egyptian themes.
So you see Catra comes from a beautiful family, which made stitching her a challenge. Ruth Schmuff has done guides for both Bastet and Pharoah's Dog. Tony Minieri has done guides for Catra and Bastet. How does one compete with talented stitchers like these?!!!
The answer is you don't. You have to do something totally different. But what? It turns out the key for my choosing stitches and threads for Catra was to look for matte threads, beads that aren't shiny, and to add touches like the mummy and extra hieroglyphs to the background.

But first I need to choose my next project....
