Are you looking for cat patterns on a black background?

Either way, the best place to search is the internet, but most of the patterns I've found so far, are not detailed. Usually I have to buy the detailed ones.

There is a computer program for sale (my Mother has it) where you can turn scanned pictures into cross stitch patterns. link (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dsoftware&field-keywords=convert+pictures+to+cross+stitch+patterns ) I've turned two pictures into patterns, but they're ridiculously detailed and it would take me years to complete even one of them.

Thanks for the tip about the computer program, I found a free one but as you say, they are so detailed. Blackwork is stitched in black thread, there are paintings of Queen Elizabeth 1 with beautiful blackwork detail on her dress.
Thanks for your tips:smallsmile:
