Autumn cross stitch update and knitted owls.

Hi everyone,

Well here we are and November is upon us the weather here in the UK is sunny and mild but I believe temperature's are going to drop near the end of the week.

With all the lovely Autumn colours around now the leaves are falling I have made progress with the Autumn cross stitch I started.


I just love the colours for this one, pattern is from Tiny Modernist


The progress on the ship ahoy pattern is coming along to I will show you pictures of that quite soon.


 I have been shopping in our local charity store and what did i find, more cross stitch patterns,



I could not resit they were such a bargain £2.00 for three magazines,




and these three were  50p each (single patterns) well that's another lot to add to my stash.


Did I mention that I was knitting two owls for my friend at work well I have finished them and just in time for Christmas too, that is good going for me.






Yarn used is King Cole Tinsel chunky, knitted on 5mm needles and scraps of DK yarn for the face and claws.
You can find details for this yarn at KingCole


Well that's all for now, have a lovely weekend.

Those owls are beautiful. You could fill quite a few Christmas stockings with these.

It's been very mild here in E. Washington state too, but I hear rumors of snow coming to the mountains. Hope it stays there. :)

I love your autumn stitching project - great colors!

Those are adorable owls Julie. Winter has set in here, a snow storm at the beginning of the week and icy rain early this morning. It's a great time for crafting and reading.
