Well I promised Becca I'd post piccies of the other Girl Guide Owl I made, so here she is Cheesy

I was commissioned to make this owl on the basis of my first guider owl - Rosie) for the 20th anniversary of the Staindrop Rainbows troop(? - soz if wrong term, I don't know much about guides!) as a gift for a lady who had been there from day one!!



Her outfit colours are based on those of the Staindrop Rainbows with embroidered trefoil on her breast, and they requested a tag with her name, title, and her dates of 'service' (on the back) embroidered on.



The name of the troop is also embroidered across the back



Alas she isn't quite 100% complete in these pictures as I hadn't any ribbon to hang the tag around her neck, but I ended up getting the most perfect rainbow ribbon to hang it on!!  Roll Eyes

She was presented to their troop leader after the 20th anniversary party and I was sent a lovely little piccie of them together Smiley

Thanks for lookin  Cool
