Needle & Thread finish

Last week I gave in to the quiet pleading of Needle & Thread from Little House Needlework and stitched it over a few days.
I have no idea what the fabric is and I used the called for Crescent Colours.
There's nothing listed for the eyes and beak of the owl so I used Hickory Sticks for the eyes and Tufted Yellow for the beak, 2 strands of each and I wrapped twice in case your interested :)


When I bought my chart I was lucky enough to get the bed as well (very surprising for my little corner of the world) so this morning I sat down and put it together.





Now I just need to do the scissor fob which I'll hopefully manage in Feb.

Beautiful finish. I love how you finished it into a mini bed cover. That was really creative. :)
