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.

I finally gave this to my dad on Saturday - in the hospital!   Cry  He somehow got an infection in his foot or leg and it became cellulitis, so he's on 2 intravenous antibiotics.  He seemed very pleased with the gift, and is doing ok.  He still hopes to fly to California some time this week to visit relatives!   Shocked  Not sure I'm keen on the idea if he's still sickly....
