Eleventh Finish For 2011

Oh yeah baby! Surprise, surprise! Pumpkin's finally got a finish to show :o)

With fall just around the corner and having the JCS Halloween ornament magazine and book arrive on my doorstep, it was inevitable that I was going to jump on the bandwagon. LOL! When I saw this little cutie, I just couldn't resist -

This is Fall Owl by Casey Buonaugurio. I used the recommended floss and fabric. I had to add the full stitch of 712 for the corner of his eye though because there was an error on the chart. He was so much fun to stitch and quick too :o) I imagine I'll finish him into a pinkeep when the time comes.

I have my ninth block finished on Christmas Rules so stay tuned for pictures of that :o)

Remember to read the important note on my previous post! And I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments that were left. I've truly enjoyed reading each one :o)

Your Fall Owl finish is so cute. The fabric color really makes the orange tones pop. Sigh...I'm not surprised to learn that there was an error in the chart. Sadly, chart errors seem to be an ongoing problem in Just Cross Stitch magazines.

Hillery said...

What I want to know is... how is it that everyone seems to have the "recommended fabric" for all these designs? I don't have a LNS so for me, I just find something suitable in my stash or I'm going to have to order it. I usually don't have the patience to wait for the post though. Love the owl. I don't have this mag, not sure if I'll get it, or....maybe I'll win one...TeeHee.

He is a cutie. Well done on having 11 finished. How many have I had you may ask? One. Yes the grand total of ONE. Really pathetic!!!

Well, I'm not into owls but I would love to win your five year prize. How's that for honesty? Do love your blog, though.

Will we still be blogging in five years, or will something else have taken over by then?
