13 Owls WIP and stuff

Happy Hump Day!!!!

Half way through the work week, yay!!

13 owls, I am loving this, the fabric and the threads. I wish I could get down to the last row and get the line of owls going

I won the BBD chart Valentine Rose from Marjorie, Thank You!!!!

I picked out some Chestnut fabric for it.

Here is a sneak peek of a Valentine piece, I hope I can finish and show by Monday

I am counting down the days till spring and it's warm enough for DH to pick this up...

Yes!! it's ours, no more renting a weekend here or there. We can jump on it anytime for a little ride.

Happy Stitching!!!

Great stitching progress. Is your Valentine's piece a BOAF??? Can't wait to see it!!

Annette said...

What a great a funny WIP, I'm very curious of the rest!!

Brenda said...

Your 13 Owls is very cute! I know it was several days ago that you asked about needles but I missed it and wanted to make a comment. I have been stitching for about thirty years (yikes) and my favorite needle by far is made by Bohin (I prefer the size 28) the eye does not snag and I never break them (I used to break needles a lot) I buy mine from Traditional Stitches in Calgary AB and they are not expensive especially if you buy the bulk pack.

Nancy M said...

13 owls looks great. Did you sell the white bike? We can't wait to get ours out either. I got him a cruise control for Christmas and he really wants to try it out!
