A New Mini Project :)

I wasn't up for working on a large project yesterday so I decided a new start was just the thing. As I finished off my Joan Elliott I am allowed to start a new mini. I had one in mind that I had planned to start after my JE was done. However I started looking through my patterns and, as I'm sure you can all relate to, other patterns started clammering for attention. I decided though, that I would stick with my first choice, so I got my floss together and had a look through my supply of hand dyed fabrics, which I am rapidly becoming hooked on.

Then I managed to settle down for the evening and worked away on this little guy:

Owliver - Just Cross Stitch Feb 2014
He is stitched on a piece of 28ct hand dyed evenweave I got on EBay a good long while ago. It is a beige/light brown colour. The pattern is the Owliver bookmark from the Feb 2014 issue of Just Cross Stitch by Sharon Pope. I plan to do both the bookmark and the larger Tote Bag piece. I just love this cute little guy and he is a very quick stitch. This is my first project from the Just Cross Stitch magazine and I am loving it.


  1. Oooh, I am so jealous! :) I just adore little owls & this one is such a cutie!!! I can't wait to see it finished :) Have fun!

  2. Such a cute owl!! Can't wait to see it complete.

  3. He's very sweet and the fabric is just right (:

  4. He looks wonderful! You got a lot done in one evening...he'll be finished in no time :)

  5. I recognised him straight away. :-)I have book marked this lovely owl for the future, so I am looking forward to your updates. I love the Just Cross Stitch magazines and my Majectic Bird is my first ever piece from the Christmas 2013 edition :-)

  6. What a cute owl! You made great progress.
