An Owl and a Pussycat: More Embroidery and Applique


Hope everyone is having a great "short" week!  I've been super busy at work and at home, but I wanted to check in and post a few pictures of what I've been working on whenever I've been able to sneak away for a few crafty minutes.  This is basically an experiment in free motion embroidery (flag banner), rough edged applique (flag banner), "regular" applique (brown "tree limb"), and hand embroidery (cat and owl).  I used sequins for the eyes and I'm afraid my little owl looks a bit cross-eyed!  Maybe he needs glasses?



Just for the record, An Owl and a Pussycat is my first attempt at real embroidery.  It was sure slow going.  I've started the Embroidery Project classes I won, but I'm a few weeks behind.  I'm excited about the projects I've seen so far; I just hope I can catch up!

Tootles for now!
