We finally have a face! And what a lovely face it is!
This page was arduous for me. On one hand, I was super anxious to stitch her face and finally meet her, but on the other hand, the colors were driving me a little bit crazy.
So I think this is a good time to switch over to the Winter Hat Owl and stitch a page of that.
Based on how long it has taken me to stitch her so far, with working on her exclusively, it's going to take me approximately 3 years to finish her, if I work on nothing else, and I'm sure by that time I will be quite mad.
So I will put her aside and do a page of vivid colors, before returning to her. But I will return. I just have to resign myself that if I do a page of another pattern here and there, that it will take me 4 or more years to finish this.
And strangely, I'm ok with that.
Here is the entire piece so far...
