WIP Wednesday and Weekend Wrap-Up

A very late WIP Wednesday post, but here it is! 

It was a very long weekend. 10 hours to my parents' house on Friday, visiting Grandma twice on Saturday and Sunday 25 minute drive each way and 10 hours back on Monday. Then work yesterday, today and tomorrow, then hopefully Friday and Saturday off again. That will be nice. 

I didn't have to do any of the driving, so I managed to finish Owl #7 from KLT Charting's SAL:

Again it's DMC 823 4 over 2 and this time the filling is WDW Blue Topaz 2 over 2. This one was very fun to finish, and no mistakes so far on this row. I did manage to start a little bit of Owl #8, but then realized I'd made a large mistake that I had to completely frog. Oh well, I'll get back to it on Friday. 

I also managed a small amount of work on Mini Winter Magic and I'm almost done the blending filament. I'll show before and after since it may be hard to tell :)


I keep seeing a lizard skull or something in it, but that should fade once I fill in the blending filament. You can really see where the tree branches will go now. The top photo has better colours. 

I might still make it by June 15, fingers crossed!

Happy Stitching, 



  1. Wonderful finish on the Owl, super cute and fantastic progress on Winter Magic.

  2. I really love this Owls eyes. I love all the eyes are different too. Winter Magic is looking great

  3. What I find interesting about the owls is that they are all basically the same on the outside and yet something as simple as changing threads in the body makes them so individual and special!

  4. Your owl is darling! And great progress on Mini Winter Magic. It looks like at least 300-400 stitches added.

  5. Another cute owl:) great progress on winter magic!

  6. Congrats on another cute owl and nice progress on Winter Magic Tiffany.


  7. That's one of my favourite of the owls! I love the colour you chose. Great progress on your HAED challenge too.

  8. Lovley owl and good luck with your June deadline.

  9. Is that owl cute or what??!!!

    Winter magic reminds me of a B&W chart I started awhile back and basically set aside. All that white on white made my head hurt, hehe. Yours looks AWESOME!! xox

  10. Love the owl! Excellent progress on the challenge.

  11. Gorgeous little owl. Your winter magic looks awesome.
