Owls and .....

As promised in my last post, here is the family of owls. They are knitted by me and my daughter using

various yarns and threads and different needles sizes. I taught my daughter how to knit and she is now happily knitting more owls here. More will be joining the family ha ha!

I took up Judy's Message In a Bottle Challenge. She had a piece of semi finished hardanger work. She throws the challenge into the Internet Ocean, challenging anyone who is willing to finish the design for the centre of the hardanger piece. I filled the centre with Lacy Daisy and picots. You can visit her blog to see her gorgeous whitework embroidery.

Next on to updates on my SALs. I had finished Part 3 of Mamen's HAL Baby, love how the design is progressing!

Now, I am working on Part 4 which involves cutting and fillers, will show picture soon!

My progress on Sara's SAL Sorpresa 3, still working on Part 3. There are lots of trees to be stitched ha ha!

Don't you love that cute snowman?

Another house was completed! It is actually a Cafe where you can get a cup of Hot Chocolate to warm you up in this winter season.

BTW, that big red rose is made by my DD. For Mother's Day ha ha! Another picture of the rose, one of my favorite flowers!

Last but not least, an update on Dorothy! I had finished the band of eyelets, hurray!

A Closer look at the eyelets! I am really for the next challenging band - the bargello!

That it for June! Thank you for your visits and comments and a warm welcome to all new followers!

Happy Stitching!

Oh Ellen, how cute they are, your little owls. A very pretty mother daughter project.
A great idea, Judy's challenge. I'll have to go to her blog and check it out. You finished her Hardanger piece very beautifully.
Nice progress on your projects.
