Hi everyone, I love owls!
I cheered myself up this week stitching these owl projects after an accident I had in the garden last week. You know how your mind can be on other things? Well, as I mentioned before I am quite accident prone, last year I crushed my hand between the lawn mower and a tree, then I fell and bashed my nose in the motorhome, gosh my nose and eyes were a mess! I literally smacked my face on the cooker on my way down to the floor, and last week I did it again, I tripped on the decking and badly bruised my shoulder and leg! I really am trying to slow down but I tend to do everything fast! Lol….
Oh and I just remembered a couple of weeks ago I tripped in the kitchen and went headlong into the fridge door!!!!
My husband has been saying for years how accident prone I am, I did not believe him but I now think he has a point! He always says he is scared to leave me on my own, wondering what he will find one day!!! Lol….. Trust me I can’t wear heels, my shoes are mostly flats and long skirts are a no no!
Anyway, back to my stitching…….
Owls are just cute and I love making anything Owl themed, these bags have been on my list of things to do for a while now and I am so pleased I finally got around to making them.
The small drawstring pouch was made with sock knitting projects in mind and the other bag is for cross stitch projects, it has a clear plastic front with two little studs for closing.
I have been busy making needleminders too, of course I had to make an owl themed one to match the cross stitch project bag!
The progress keepers are currently available in my Etsy shop
but the needleminders and owl bags will be in my next shop update in a few weeks time.
Here are my owl progress keepers that I use in my knitting projects.
I sold this pretty Tilda pincushion this week and had a small amount of the fabric left over so decided to make a matching scissor pouch.
It is now all wrapped up and on its way to the customer.
It’s funny but I get so much fun out of wrapping the parcels!
The monthly Hands on Design stitching club arrived last week and I managed to get it stitched quite quickly, they can be easily completed in one evening. I love the colours for July, I am thinking of doing some applique on the pillow for this month.
The pack includes the fabric, thread, needles, needleminder, buttons and the pattern for all 12 designs.

Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
