New Start - Owls In Love

Good morning again!

I'm back with a new start!

This design is called Owls In Love from FluffyFuzzyPatterns on etsy and is being stitched on absolutely gorgeous 16ct Sparkly Cloud Grey aida from sewitall.com (not that you can see the sparkles in the photo). I started this during my Stitching Retreat last weekend but thought I would save the post until I had reached the 10 hour mark:

After 10 hours

And in case you haven't seen this chart before, here's how Hedwig and Errol will look when completed:



There are only three greys in the design and I thought maybe stitching grey on grey would be boring. But it isn't. So I'm definitely staying with this one for the time being - my other WIPs (namely Winter Owl and Spotted Owls) will just have to wait. Hmmm bit of an owl theme going on at the moment!

Be back soon!

  3. Oh you've made fantastic progress already!! See, all that chatting really stopped us stitching at our normal pace HAHA
    You know I have now totally addicted to FFF... can't wait to stock up soon (yes, I did check & they will be present). Let me know if you want anything! HAHA What a silly question!
    Now, this is totally cute & adorable but like our friend Justine mentioned it, me think there is another little owl who is really really looking forward to meeting a friend HAHA
