Here is the embroidery I made for an owl blog swap I was involved in. I designed the pattern myself as all the ones I came across had only one owl and my swap partner is getting married tomorrow, so I really wanted to have a Mr & Mrs.


Found some lovely vintage frames on eBay too ... which I think finished it off really nicely  Smiley



Thanks  Smiley

I love it (esp. the fabric choice: excellent compliment to your adorable design) and I think that frame is just perfect!

All the elements you chose definately work together---color choice, fabric choice and frame.  GREAT WORK!!
