French Country Owl - JBW Designs



 
Hello Peeps!
 

The summer holiday season seems to have made
my little stitching bug go on a break!


I do have however a small finish to share with you.
It appears I have skipped summer theme pattern in its entirety and
gone straight for my favourite autumn season!


This is French Country Owl
From JBW Designs




A sweet nothing stitched on 16 count Aida fabric
Sand Dune colour from Sew It All

My model was worked with charted DMC fibres 2 over 1.

Started on the 18th Aug and finished on the 19th Aug.




Best not mention the finishing bug... it has gone awol too for now :)


Toodles,
Mii

      Summertime and I are unfortunately not best friends... but I will surely miss those brighter days.

  4. A beautiful finish! I blame my bug disappearing due to the Olympics, it will be back in the Autumn I suspect - hopefully!

  6. I do like these JBW designs with lots of others to look for within it. It certainly feels like Autumn here in Dorset today, we have really wild weather in between the sunny spells. Hope your mojo returns soon it seems as if many people are suffering with the same complaint,me included although I am getting it back slowly.

      Yes, it looks like the hot weather and holidays have not helped.
      I'm just stitching on what I really like and take it slowly, hope this will do the trick :)

  16. Oh, I know that very well, Ingrid - during the summer I never feel really motivated to stitch. The only thing that helps is to start a new project, lol. Your little owl is just gorgeous.

  33. The summer does seem to zap a lot of stitching mojo! Mine is OK... as long as I am in front of the A/C! Your owl is cute and so is that fabric! It looks slightly fuzzy -- is it flannel?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My pictures must be blurry, perhaps??
      Nothing fuzzy there, just cotton aida and cotton printed fabric...

      Delete
    2. No, I think it's just the print that looks fuzzy, like flannel! Cotton is sometimes sneaky like that ahaha :D
