I hope everyone has had a great week! It's been really wonderful having our friends here over this last week and we successfully pulled off a surprise birthday party for DH last Saturday! It was definitely a challenge, but he was completely surprised. Part of the reason is his birthday isn't until December ;) But our friends won't be here then and he'd be too suspicious in December, so he's already had his big birthday surprise.
I had a special cake made that was entirely dairy free so everyone could enjoy it, and it was fantastic! It was very specially decorated too, so once I get the photos off the camera I'll post one of his cake. I forgot to take one with my phone. DH really loved it, and everyone had a good time at the party, so I'm glad we pulled it off.
On to stitching!
Not too much done this week with all the excitement, but owl #10 is almost done! I only have a few days to finish it off and the other 2, but I think I can manage it since I have the weekend as well.
Here's Owl #10 outlined in DMC 823, 4 over 1 and filled in with Jodyri Flying Monkeys (love the name!) 3 over 1:
Clearly this one is unhappy I have him in the Qsnaps crooked and is eyeballing the little bit of Qsnap showing in this photo. :)
I hope you've all had good weeks and wish me luck finishing off Owls 10-12 before Sunday!
