Bats in the Belfry

I started AAN's Bat Banner last Saturday. I had a few good days of stitching. I estimate I'm about half way done.
I just have the swirls on the sides and the big bat at the bottom. I've made a few changes. It calls for it to be stitched on orange with just three colors - black, gray, and white. I decided to do it on the same fabric as the Spider. One of the ladies at In Stitches suggested using the orange from the Spider on the disks to tie them together. I think it took me as long to back stitch the two little bats as to stitch the other parts.

And now I'll leave you with the latest picture of my kitty. He's lounging on his daddy's flannel jammies.

That really looks good. The colors show up so well on that gray fabric. It's hard to find a good fabric for whites sometimes.

Your cat is quite a stunner!
