Mum’s birthday owl

Happy Birthday Mum xoxoxox



My mum loves owls, I thought she might like a cusion to lean on while reading.


To get some colour into the owl with out having to keep changing threads I loosened the bobbin tention and used a muli coloured thread in the bobbin then I  tightened the top and used a gold thread the effect turned out as I hoped the top thread pulling through some of the bobbin thread giving the owl some extra splashes of colour and some texture.


I stitched up a load of leaves and added a moon.


I made the panel into a simple cushion, I hope she likes it,its her birthday tomorrow, 5th November, she will be 80 something,I have lost count.
