Smalls SAL - October 2018

Good afternoon everybody!

Once again it's time for the Smalls SAL, run by Heather of Stitching Lotus. Is it me or do the months come round more quickly towards the end of the year?

For October I decided to stitch another Hootie. I chose this one because it's in colours I don't stitch with very often, so thought it would make a nice change.

Purple Patchwork Hootie by Pinoy Stitch (etsy)
Stitched on 16ct Cloud Lilac over-dyed aida from 2 over 1
Stitch count - 41 wide by 42 high
Started - 1st October 2018
Finished - 4th October 2018
Total stitching time - 8 hours 5 minutes

The only colour change I made was to the two diamonds in the middle of his chest - the charted 208 was too similar to the 209 around it so I used the paler 211.

And... it will come as no surprise to you that he's been made up into a little hanging ornie using coordinating fabric and barley twist cord:

I'm not planning on stitching any more Hooties until this time next year, so my Parliament of owls will have to consist of just two for the time being.

Next month, I'm going bananas!

Take care,
Rachel x

Your purple owl is just gorgeous, and your finishing is beautiful, as usual.
