I love this little owl!!!!! He was such a fast stitch and he turned out just adorable. I used an overdyed Mandarin bamboo floss in fall colors for the owl, black silk for the branch and Silk Lame Petite Braid from Rainbow Galleries for the leaves. This is my first time using the Silk Lame on 32ct. and I love the coverage and how it looks. I highly recommend using this if you are just looking for something with a little bit of glitz which is what I wanted for the leaves. I don't think it shows up very well in the picture though. I've started a little basket for all my little fall pillows and so far I'm off to a good start.
Since I finished Fall Roses I'm thinking about starting another large project but have no idea what. I think tomorrow I'll sit in my sewing room and not come out till I find something interesting to work on. I have some Christmas ornaments to start and I would like to have them finished by Halloween so that's a definite maybe. Have you ever started something and then come across a design that you would rather be stitching? I'm one of those people who only have 1 or 2 things going at one time. I really don't see how anyone gets anything finished when you're working on 10 or 12 things at a time....or is it just me?
Anyways, tomorrow I have to stop at my LNS and pick up some buttons I ordered so maybe something will jump out at me there.
Everyone have a great weekend if I don't get to talk to you sooner,
Blessings as always,
