Spotted Owls - finished

Good evening all!

So, here's my May finish from the DSDUCJFC 2015 Challenge (when I was mad enough to start one project each day during the whole of January and February).

This is finish number 30/59 which means I've officially just passed the halfway point - yippee! However, if I continue at my pace of finishing just one project per month I've still got a l-o-n-g way to go, but I'm not bothered at all; I think all cross stitchers agree it's just as much about the fun of the journey as the finish.

Anyway, here's how I left Spotted Owls at the end of April with just a few leaves left to stitch:

And here is the finished piece with all the info:

Spotted Owls from the Young'uns collection by Gloria and Pat
Stitched on 16ct Tumbleweed over-dyed aida by sewitall.com 2 over 1
Stitch count 106 wide by 109 high
Started - 21st February 2015
Finished - 14th May 2018
Total stitching time - 43 hours 25 minutes

I think they're totally adorable and, from previous comments, I think a lot of you will agree!

For the immediate future this piece will, unfortunately, go in my Box of Shame. I have already chosen the frame and added it to my basket but do not have enough at the moment to justify an order from my online framing shop (I usually buy 3-4 at a time). Fingers crossed I should have enough by the end of the year though.

Take care,
Rachel x
