Last time I was still working on the black background for the first owl:

Even if it doesn’t look like it, there are other colours (mostly dark greens) now, and I’ve started to fill in the area between the eyes:

This is making slow progress, and that’s probably going to stay this was, since I have other projects on the go that take priority. I’m currently hand-stitching the binding for a big quilt, so I’m rewarding myself with a thread on this one after every thread for the binding.

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, itโ€™s amazing:ย Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Sue, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan, Deborah, Mary Margaret, Renee, Carmela, Jocelyn, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, Connie, AJ and Jenny!

  1. Love these eyes already, looking forward to seeing them develop xx

  2. All progress is good progress!

  3. Hand stitching the binding on a quilt is my favourite part to do ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Nice sweet owl…Happy Stitching!

  5. You’ve got a densely covered area there which might make it seem slow to cover. You really stitched quite a lot. Love owls.

  6. Any stitch put in is good in my book. Your way of rewarding yourself is fun – sometimes I do this with housework – one job done, one thread of stitching gets done. Anyway to motivate, right?!

  7. He’s beginning to really take shape ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to see the quilt your working on too ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe you could show us? I looked around your page a bit but didn’t spot it. I quilt and do everything by hand ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. The progress may feel slow, but it is very visible! Every stitch is closer to a finish and this is darling.

  9. well done on progress!

  10. I missed the start of this project. Looks like it’s well under way!

  11. I work on the reward system too:) Everything will get done with a little work on each:)

  12. He’s a cutie! You have a great reward system worked out for your hand stitching.๐Ÿ˜€

  13. Still, itยดs growing and thatยดs great!!

  14. Lol I do the same thing. I’ll stitch one thread than go work on something else then come back. What ever keeps us motivated right? ๐Ÿ™‚ great progress regardless.

  15. Well done — and I love your reward system!

  16. It’s looking lovely ๐Ÿ™‚
