MY FOB FOR MAY

 
Continuing my woodland theme, this month's fob is a small owl. Found one I liked on Pinterest but the chart did not print off properly and along with my using finer linen I ended up stitching an adapted design in fact both these little owls are different. Love the tiny bead caps that I have used for Flowers  specially the copper ones, it's great having a bead shop here in town, now instead of stock up when ever I saw something in case I could use it in the future I am now able to go there with my project and see and select what I need..... And the selection includes items I have never seen before, it's fun.  What next... I have more ideas than time available to follow up on them.
 Currently working on a secret squirrel project, making good progress but will be a couple of months before I can share it. This project is the reason I have not had time to set up a posting on my blog.
I can however share what I recently to Cindy, needlework accessories on a blue theme, to which I hope later to be able to complete the set.


Oh for a few extra hours that I can fit in all I want to stitch. With winter upon us here, there is hope for that, time spent sitting by the fire with needle and thread in hand.

What beautiful finishes! You're blessed to have your new bead shop; local craft shops seem to be disappearing.
