This is the ultimate *Scrap Threads* design. The Mona Lisa Cats design uses 37 colors. Besides, they are absolutely charming.
Patt calls these excellent cats "Kittens", as far as I am concerned they are cats, cats, cats. They are all smiling, they remind me of Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa .
The design area is 10 X 9 inches The entire canvas measures 14 X 13 inches, it are 14 mesh.
The Patt and Lee Designs needlepoint canvases are Glicee Original Design Needlepoint. These are superior needlepoint canvases, the edges and the colors are crisp and clean.
I recently assembled this canvas as a kit for a customer. It used 44 skeins of DMC #5 Perle Cotton Floss in 37 colors. If you would like this as a kit, please contact me.

There are 15 cats, whole and partial cats. Some are just a belly or an ear, there is very little background here that I can see, it is all cats I think this is a wonderful design.
The canvas does not include any threads or yarn.
Dry Blocking is recommended when finishing your project. Do not use excessive water.
All NewNeedlepoint canvases have taped or machine hemmed edges.

Remember to stitch 2-3 additional lines all around the completed canvas for finishing.
