Cheshire Cat Cross-stitch

Finally finished my latest cross-stitch project. I’ve been working on this one for about a month. Pattern by Rocking Horse Cross Stitch, though using glow-in-the-dark floss for the grin was my own idea.

I maybe could have got a better picture of the grin if I’d dragged out the DSLR but after a little tweaking it’s at least possible to see it in the picture.


“And how do you know that you’re mad?”

“To begin with,” said the Cat, “a dog’s not mad. You grant that?”

“I suppose so,” said Alice.

“Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see, a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”
