A finish and a start

I have another crazy January finish. I figured since I finished my last start I should finish my first. There is a kind if symmetry to that. So without further adieu here is my day 1 start 'Roaming Reindeer by blue ribbon designs. 

I love this piece. The only reason it took me so long to stitch was because I was so distracted by new starts. I should be able to have another finish with the Joan Elliott house but you will have to wait to see.

Which reminds me I did start another project. This one is kinda a cross stitch project and kinda not. It's an owl pillow that you buy in a quilting panel. The shop where I bought it from the lady had added a lot of beads and sequins to add something to hers but I didn't want to do just that. 

So I decided to enhance the pattern with cross stitch!

You can see in this close up that I have traced over the brownish outlines with little black crosses. This project will take a while but I love the effect and I like the black better than the brown and it's fun to do at night because I don't have to think just follow the lines.

I will be writing a post about this shop soon but if anyone is in Brisbane on the northside I would recommend dropping in to Make It Hobby 'n Craft.

Happy Stitching,
