Page finish and a new start

So, last week, this time, I had almost finished page 4 of The Loneliness of Autumn.  Wednesday, I finally managed to fill in the last confetti stitch for another page finish.

Then I pulled SS Daybreak back out and made a little progress before I got bored.

Saturday afternoon, I pulled out a chart for a new start.

I converted the called for DMC to HDF and started stitching on 32ct Belfast in PTP's Icon.  I was not happy with the coverage of 1x2

so frogged it and pulled out a piece of 40ct Kingston in PTP's Valor and made a little progress last night.

At this point, I'm concerned that the black on the cat's cheeks is blending too much with the dark grey of it's face.  The nose is black too but I think that can be fixed by stitching it 2x2 instead of 1x2 so it stands out a little more.

Whoa look at you go! I am so in love with Loneliness, the colours are too amazing. I know how boring sky background can be, but think about how much fun it's going to be when you get to the lovely hillside and that beautiful house. Halloween cat looks so much better on the 40ct too, and that's a good idea to double the strands for the nose, that will make it more prominent.
Great stitching on all of them stunner.
