Holly at Christmas

User M McCann shared this cross stitch chart of their beloved pet dog. The chart looks like it was made from a christmas card, and all the red and green around the edges was added as christmas decorations before they uploaded the photo to the cross stitch pattern maker. If you've got a photo of your pet that you'd like to make a cross stitch of, use the pattern maker linked above.

I think the fur and the dog's face came out great. Thanks for sharing M McCann, and have fun stitching.

Two Colored Eyed Cat

Here is the third cat cross stitch pattern that Ricki shared, along with the following comments:

I am fond of cats and this two different eye colored cat is so beautiful. Try cross stitching this pattern on black Aida cloth to make it pop.

Stitching it on black Aida is an interesting suggestion. Thanks for sharing the patterns Ricki, and I'd love to see them when they're completed.

Pandora
User Grannyweazy submitted this picture of Pandora. From her description "She was our cat. Got her in 1968." I might suggest using a few more colors, so that those beautiful blue eyes show up in the pattern. I think removing the background of the image would help, but my girlfriend thinks that the background makes Pandora pop out more. The use of dithering provides nice blending of the shadows and fur. I hope you have fun stitching it Grannyweazy :) and thanks for sharing your pattern.
