This weekend we have IHSW Part 2, so sign up if you'd like to join in and hermit and stitch away all weekend!
I lucked out in that I only had to work this morning, so I was able to get out KLT Charting Owl #6 and am well on the way to finishing:
As with the rest, I used DMC 823 4 over 1 and I'm using Jodyri thread Rose Ringed Parakeet 2 over 1 for the backstitch effect. The center cross stitches are 4 over 1 since I wanted them to have a little more definition.
I really like the filling thread. I think it shows well and the colours compliment each other well.
I hope you're all having a great weekend and I'll get a photo of the whole thing once I finish Owl #6 and have to move the Qsnaps. Speaking of the Qsnaps, do you like my new cover from Cirrus Creations? It fits perfectly and I love the little birds! Plus it's roomy enough for the afghan fabric I'm using to be rolled into it.
