The Cheshire Cat

One of the cross stitch projects I've been working on lately is the Cheshire Cat from Heaven and Earth Designs. It's designed by Hannah Lynn and so cool.
The lighting in the picture is perhaps not the best, but I'm working on where it's best to take pictures. It's stitched 2 over 1 on 14 count aida.

 Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite stories, so when I saw the whole Alice series on HAED, I just had to have it. There are 5 pictures in the series, and I'm really looking forwards to having them all on my wall. Here's a link if you're interested:

I don't remember the exact date I started stitching, but I'm pretty sure it was somewhere at the beginning of January. My strategy when stitching this is to primarily work on all the black, and then fill in the colors as I go. When I tire of the black, I work on colors for a while.

 Right now my rotation is one week on this one, and for the next week, I work on a wall-hanging. I've been working on the wall-hanging for 2 years now, so I'm really looking forwards to finishing that one. I'll make a post about it next week and show my progress.
