Sketch for Margreet's owl

This is about as detailed as any sketch I do for CQ because it always changes as I begin stitching...and also due to thread etc. selections..

Although I chose to use a barn owl instead of the fluffy owl on the book rack, I did adapt the art nouveau background from it... sorta.... The two odd-shaped images near his feet are pine cones.. probably will dye some ribbon to do them..

Also will probably do the owl on a hoop just because it will be a LOT of stitching... Now it kinda looks like a gargoyle, when the owl is done and puffed it will move out from the background... hopefully....

Granddaughter left this am... I was waiting for a call to go back to the airport and gather her or some of her luggage home again... She had a LOT.... Loved her visit...very special time

I envy your sketching skill. I consider my own attempt "primitive." That works for some projects. It's a very handsome owl.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your GD. Her visit seemed so short!

I liked to see where your owl idea came from...you picked a beauty! I've no doubt that it will be glorious...plus the colors of that owl will be perfect on her block. Good to be reading your tales again...
