Day 11, & 12 and two OWLs

To start with I couldn't put down day tens start so I have a lot of progress on this one since Thursday.

I did manage to START no. 11 but it isn't really much of a start.

I started so I could say I started!

Day 12 is a really small start a poinsettia pattern from the Joan Elliott book which I felt like starting because it was smaller than the other ones. It will make a tiny cute ornament.

Now to the important stuff in this post. Back in October I bought an toy owl pattern from Funky Friends Factory. Just after Christmas I had a go at making one.

And here is Ollie owl ... I made lots of mistakes though it's not noticeable here. I had to unpick the wings and recut a side piece. I wasn't happy with what I did. SO today I made another one and took some progress pictures.

I used a variegated purple/blue thread to add the detail to the wings, tail and face.

Inside out and ready to turn :D

He's feeling very deflated.

Then tonight both owls are sitting together on the bean bag watching TV.  It was much better the second time around I didn't make as many mistakes. I love them both and I don't know whether they will ever leave this house. They are too cute.

So that was my day. I was very busy for most of the day and avoiding doing any chores around the house. I will need to attack them tomorrow.

Happy Stitching,
