I finished Whoo-Hoo? Me Too? from Kincavel Krosses late on Friday night. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to post it until now because I had to work yesterday and then I have had to get caught up on some serious cleaning around the house today. Now that’s finished and I can blog!
Here it is! I stitched it in two shades of green instead of pink and purple, and I also omitted the eyelashes. They just didn’t seem to fit with this little green owl. I am very happy with how it turned out. I had a little bit of trouble with getting the right tension with the stitches but all-in-all, it turned out okay I think. Only the odd stitch looks a little funny. I am going to put it in a simple 4×6 frame and give it as a gift to my friend who is expecting as I originally mentioned. She hasn’t done any work on the baby’s room yet, so maybe it will help contribute to the decor!
It may seem funny, but the thing I am most excited about finishing this little piece is that the back actually looks almost as good as the front! This is very much a first for me. Normally, the backs of most of the pieces I stitch look like complete disasters. I’m so proud of it; I needed to share:
This little piece has definitely gotten me out of those stitching blahs I have been dealing with for the last few months, and I am looking forward to starting my next one. Not sure what I will be doing just yet. I think I am almost ready to pick the Vintage Colt back up. I think this time though I will keep another one on the go to work on so I can keep some variety going in hope of staving off those blahs again.
