#35 Christmas Owl

I’ve got an hour or so left of WIP Wednesday so I’m still good to share my stitchy stuff from this week! 🙂 

Hello All!! 

I’ve had a surprisingly productive week. On Sunday’s I usually spend the afternoon stitching… This Sunday just gone I spent the afternoon/early evening organising & tidying a small portion of the spare room! Why you ask? Because I wanted an organised spot for all my cross stitch stuff! 

I originally started with a sewing box & it’s just gone from there to the point that I can’t find anything & it’s messy & chaotic. So yes that’s what I did with my Sunday… Some might say I wasted it but it felt so good to put the stitching down & organise things that had slowly been prickling me! 

So, other than get organised I got round to completing my first November goal which was to stitch & put together a Christmas tree decoration for my exchange. 

I’m not going to lie, I had to think twice about joining this exchange because it was a little out of my comfort zone as I worried I wouldn’t be able to find a design, stick it all together & make an actual decoration… But I thought it would be something different so I’ve given it a go! 

Here’s my owl all stitched up: 

  
The pattern is from yet another cross stitch crazy magazine. (I’ll need to check the issue number & get back to you) 

And here it is attached with ribbon & felt: 

  
(Yep, that’s Netflix in the background :D)

What do you think? I’m really pleased with it & hope my exchange partner likes it! I absolutely adore Owls too 🙂 

On to my next goal… The Magical Creatures SAL. I’m due to start the SAL (stitch a-long) in January & this month I wanted to start the border of it. It’s a really intricate border & I’m finding it slow going but I am enjoying it. I’m probably more excited that I get to start my first SAL then actually stitching it lol click Here to see the pattern. 

This is my progress so far:

  
I LOVE the fabric! It’s from Chromatic Alchemy– hand dyed pretty! 🙂 This has probably taken about 8 hours so far! I’m a little sad thinking at my pace it’ll probably take another 24 hours to finish 😦

Here’s the full length of fabric to show you how big it’ll be:

  
It makes me feel a bit better when I look at the full piece 🙂 

So as far as November goes… It’s all go go go! 

What are you working on at the moment? 

If you fancy joining the magical creatures SAL then feel free to join the Facebook group under the name ‘Magical creatures calendar SAL 2016’. It’s a great bunch of people & all the more exciting that we get to share our trials & excitement! 🙂 

Happy stitching! 

 I’ll just leave this here…
