Blue Lilac Cross Stitch and Ellie Cat

I began a new project over the weekend inspired by a blue lilac watercolor and ink drawing I did a while back. I love the French blue and yellow color theme and with spring coming soon I wanted to do something bright. I think I will start trying to find some French blue fabrics and sunshine yellow to go with this pattern to make into a runner for my buffet. I'm using DMC floss also and it has been a long time since I've just used DMC. I always seem to use the hand dyed flosses from Weeks Dye Works and The Gentle Art - love hand dyed flosses.
This is my little sketch that inspired my design. I love lilacs and I always like to play around with nature's colors and make my own. I've never seen a blue lilac before.

This is my latest design called "Ellie Cat". I finished her over the weekend and really like her. She has a big heart and makes me smile and she has a little bird friend. It's nice to be able to keep the design in a hoop - easy finishing and looks nice. Very economical, can't beat that. Ellie is headed out to my distributor today and she will be in my Artfire shop tomorrow.
