Owls of a feather 2



Time to share with you all my latest finish on this dull & rainy Saturday
Here is Owls of a Feather from The Stitching Shed that I've finished as a cushion

I've changed the little ribbon on the felt owl. The original one provided in the kit was not suiting the design's colours to my liking

I've already stitched Birdhouses from this company in the past, see the post here
I just love the colours & the designs are always easy to stitch

I'm off to email them a little pic of my finish and catch up with all your posts!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x

Voici ma toute dernière finition!
Owls of a Feather de Stitching Shed

Que pensez-vous de ce coussin? Bien joli n'est-ce pas?
Il n'y a que le bec du hibou qui ne me plait pas trop, je suis pointilleuse!

A tout à l'heure...
