Same finish... different buttons

Thank you!!! for all the comments.
I am pretty sure the buttons won the vote.
But Thanks to Cathey (aka Pumpkin) and AFWife, I changed it. I went to Lynn's of Madison
this weekend and picked out the snowflake buttons, then I stitched a couple of smyrna's
I was going to make a pillow this morning, but I need matching material, that is not in my tote of fabrics. How's it look now??

While I was at Lynn's on Saturday with Anna (no blog) (waving at ya) I picked out some fabrics to go with already had charts in my stash. I started 13 Owls and stitched all day watching the football games.

While I live in Bear country on the border of the Packers, I would like to Congratulate the Packer's win.

Good Luck against the Steeler's

"Thirteen Owls" by Plum Street Samplers

stitching on 40ct Purely Primitive w/ Crescent Colours

The instructions are 1 floss over 1 linen thread, I choose the 1 floss over 2 linen thread, do you blame me??!!

I have a really dumb question...

How do you know when your needle is wore out and you need to throw it out and start with a new fresh one??

Do you use only a needle for so long or so many projects??

I'd really love to hear what you have to say on this

Happy Stitching!!!!

Oh! Do the buttons look o.k. or should I stitch snowflakes???

I am really not sure how it looks,

so I would love your wonderful stitching opinions

I plan on finishing it as a pillow

Thanks so much for all your comments.

Thanks to Vonna for sending it to me. I loved it from the moment I seen it on her blog.
