Owl SAL - KLT Charting - Owl 6 of 12 - FINISH 12 of 2016

So it's time for the next part of the Owl SAL for KLT Charting.  I am stitching it on an 18 count hand dyed aida from KLT Charting called Dryad Dwelling.  I've decided to count each individual owl as a mini finish for the year so this one is my tenth finish for 2016.

As there are 12 owls I decided to stitch each one in a colour that I feel relates to a month of the year.  Unfortunately the colour I had picked out for June didn't show up on my fabric so I had to switch to a different colour I chose Indian Ringneck.  I have to say this little owl caused me some real problems - first I stitched over half the outline and realised I had stitched it one column over from where it should have been so had to unpick it.  Then I started the blackwork and realised that the thread I had chosen didn't show up against the fabric so I had to unpick that - which as I couldn't really see the thread against the fabric was very difficult!  But now he's completed I love him and am thinking about doing some more blackwork as I really enjoyed it.

So here is owl number 6:

And all the owls so far:

Keep stitching and smiling

Shame about the frogs but he does look sweet. I enjoy blackwork too. Even in multi-colours!
