Owl Growth Chart #2 Part 2 First Finish of 2016!

Hello everyone!  Oops I didn't mean to wait so long to publish the second half of my Owl Growth Chart for my son... I think this is where I left off.
Adding the pupils made the owls look less menacing...
Daddy owl gets a swing.
I felt like there was so much green in this design!

And here is the finished piece!  I believe I started it on December 12th 2015 and finally finished it on April 4, 2016.  I still haven't fully finished it up to being able to hang it on the wall but I will get to it eventually.  This design did stitch up rather quickly.  I stitched it 3 over 1 on 11 count fabric that came in the kit.  I felt so relieved to get something that I felt obligated to stitch off my list.  Awhile ago I joined the group "Stitch Maynia" on Facebook.  They had two SALs in March one was called Its Not Easy Being Green, where you stitched something green in honor of St. Patrick's Day, and Mostly Monogamous March.  It was nice sharing progress with others and the SALs honestly helped keep me on track to finishing this.  But as I was plugging away at this one I kept dreaming of starting something new just to take my mind off this for a bit.  I didn't give in but the idea of joining in the SAL called Stitch Maynia where you start something new for EVER DAY in May seemed more and more like a fun idea.  Did I really have 31 new starts in May?  You'll have to stay tuned to find out.  Until then...Happy Stitching!
