I did these months and months ago, but just recently got around to taking some photos:

The blue owl is actually the tester pattern for the set - but I love him most! I call the other one my Egghead Owl because he looks like an egg, ha. I do like the way the branches came out in that one, however.

Just wanted to share, lately I have been knitting a lot, but have been in a stitching mood this past week! Smiley

I have that pattern also!

I'm working on one of them right now, but all the little leaves started to get tedious so I set it aside for a little bit. I will try and post it as soon as it's done!

Aww, they're so cute! Looks really neat, what sort of stitch is that? It looks like chain stitch or split stitch.

Nice job, the colours are pretty, too.  Smiley

Thank you everyone! I think I just might start another one today...

Yes, I agree, the leaves were quite tedious but they turn out really cute in the end!

Aww, they're so cute! Looks really neat, what sort of stitch is that? It looks like chain stitch or split stitch.

I used stem and split, plus some little backstitching here and there when needed.

soooo cute!  and I'm so jealous of your perfect stitches.

Thanks! They don't look perfect to me, but it makes me happy you think so!

I love the blue one too, the colors are beautiful together.  The second one does look like an egg.  I have to get these patterns.
