My Dad is a big fan of Harry Potter, so I made him this Owl Post embroidery for his 83rd birthday this month.  Smiley

Thank you!  I'm trying to work smaller and more detailed, and this one seemed to take a long time!   Tongue You can't see it really in the photo, but it is dimensional, with the owl slightly padded, the letter more padded, and the beak projecting out from the piece to overlap the letter.
