Winter Hat Owl Page 11 is Complete




Started Sept 10 and finished Oct 7.  7315 stitches.  68% done!!

This is the last full page of owl.  The next is straight background, which should be an incredibly fast stitch, and then just partial owl and lots of background.  Just 9 more pages after this, and 4 of them partials, so really, just 5 more pages and I'm done.

The urge to just stitch on, now that the end is in sight is so, so strong, but I dutifully took him out of the Q-snaps and put him away, because I know if I don't pull out Adrift (who still has so much left on her to do) I will lost my mojo for her and not want to stitch her.  And that just simply cannot happen.

So here he is, two angry little eyes glaring out at you, complaining that his feet, once stitched, will be cold!

I'm so in love with this little guy, I can't adequately express it.  I just want to kiss his tiny little beak and do up his hat.

Next up, Adrift - this time with tail!   Stay tuned!

  1. He is very cute and you have made wonderful progress. I think he looks kind of bewildered, maybe it's the big eyes! Looking forward to seeing more of your mermaid soon :D

    1. Now you mention it, he DOES look kind of bewildered! Good catch!
      The mermaid page is coming along. It's a bit behind schedule because I have just had guests and I didn't have a chance to stitch while they were here, but I will get back into the saddle and start stitching again.
