Here is my very first custom cross-stitch! The design is based off of SillyJonna's cute little Pixel Owl, which I converted into DMC colours and stitched up on cream 14-count canvas. The species is probably a Saw-Whet Owl, if anyone's curious ^^



The design has 14 colours, and is about 3x3.5" big. I had originally bought a decorative little embroidery hoop but it was too small Tongue So it's now in a frame instead!



Here's the reference for the design:

Thanks for looking :3

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......
