Only the Best Dressed

Fashionably dressed owls, never late to a party...  Stella and Max are my new BFFs.

We stitched their faces in class last Sunday.  It was a fun first lesson of the Brooke Connor Holiday Owls Mystery Class.  I love when a face comes to life on a canvas.  It grounds everything and you just know it's all going to come together.  Suddenly the canvas has a soul.

Look at those eyes!!!

We also stitched vests.  We created a super quick composite stitch that is dynamic thanks to a change of direction.

Ohh!  And look at the purple vest.  I love this stitch, and when worked with a single strand of my overdyed floche in a new color it is way too cool.

The blue wing is a work in progress.  Wait until you see what's up my sleeve for the rest of the wing.  OMG too fun.

Here's Stella and Max at the end of lesson one.  We meet again in less than two weeks.  Shall we stitch hats and feathers or shall I surprise you with a background.  Only time will tell.

We do have canvases and threads in stock so if you would like to join the holiday party, now is the time.  Order here, or give us a call at 410.296.0405.

Unfortunately, no snap trays for this project. but the class magnets and matching scissor fobs are super cute.

See you soon
