This beautiful Sleepy Cat is an original design by Kerry Tucker of Star Shaped and Shiny. Her embroidery choices — the variety of stitches and colors — qualify it as a sampler; but the charming image begs to become home decor — framed, or a pillow as Kerry demonstrates. What’s even better: Kerry is sharing the design! Go to her blog post to download the pattern, and stitch a sleepy kitty of your own!
