Better Late Than Never

So I finally finished my owl on the pumpkin, it's meant for Halloween which was oh LAST week, but hey it's done. ;)

I love how it turned out, it has some minor glitches that we won't discuss but overall I love it. :) Now I just need to get it framed. I think the only complaint I can put forth is that the pattern didn't have a conversion to DMC. It was specialty threads only and that was a bit of a pain, especially for those that can't get or don't want to use them. I wish that this kind of info was noted when selling a pattern as it can be quite crucial. That's my only complaint though, the pattern is well done and easy to use. And FUN! :D

I told you that I took an embroidery class and showed my progress...well here's the finished project.

The part I loved the most making this was the ribbon embroidery. I know, can you believe it? Everyone else hated it or had trouble with it but I really loved it. I have no idea what I'm going to do with this, maybe a pillow? But here is a close up of some of my stitches for San.

Not too horrible for someone whose never done them (except for lazy daisies) before. LOL

Well I hope you all are having fun stitching and enjoying fall or spring depending on where you are. :D
