I haven't embroidered in a while but after making the Om Sweet Om towel for my friend I realized how much I missed it!

I tried to try a different color scheme, like vintage-type colors...I don't know if I actually hit the mark or not but I'm really happy with the way it turned out!
It's mostly back stitch but his eyes are all in split stitch

The detail on this is amazing, and your stitches are flawless! I love how you did his eyes.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Too cute! I adore owls, and I love this one, too! I really want to try my hand at embroidery, now. I want one just like him!

The owl is so cute!  I love the colors you chose--a little bit unusual but works perfectly.  I love the frame you chose as well!

I'm coveting.

Sir Owl looks like a Dias de los Muertos bird.
