Parisian Owl Finished!! and other stuff....

I am sooo very excited to be able to show you guys "Parisian Owl"  using Tula Pink Parisville Fabrics!!! 


 I had totally had so much fun making this.
After hand embroidering the owl and piecing the borders I hand quilted in a chunky uneven stitch in a diagonal fashion.
She's a tiny girl measuring at 25" x 27".
Such a cute wall hanging. It's going in our bedroom!
 Now I can't wait to see what our contest winner, Barbara, will make!

So, my momma taught my young how to hand stitch by using cross stitch, embroidery, and needle point. I still love it to this day. I have found some super modern and awesome embroidery patterns on line. One being Calavera by Polka and Bloom. 
***The word calavera (Spanish for "skull") can refer to a number of cultural phenomena associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls Day.---Wikipedia***
Here is my rendition of this pattern so far...


 
The neat thing about her patterns are you get different sizes. So, I am going to make prob 6-8 of these in different sizes and incorporate them into a quilt.... So cute!!!! 

Ok so for some fun, the Hubs ig going to kill me for this...but it's so cute!
I quilt mostly at night and everyone in the house is usually asleep... they do ocasionally come and visit me in the Quilt Liar.....

Yes, Daddy & Yoshimi love to cuddle!

On the other side of the house I found this....
My sweet Ridgey-Poo passed out by his bowl.

These guys are a lively bunch, lol!!

Well, that's it for me today. Thank you all for stopping by.
If you fell a lil' frisky leave me a comment ;)

Namaste all!

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”

  2. Hi Anna, I love the owl quilt design - the offset square - it just keeps pulling me in and the fabrics are so lush :)

  3. Wow, the embroidery is fantastic! I would love to learn to embroider someday.
    I found your blog through the "Fresh Lemons Quilts" bloglist on Flickr, but you need to go fix the link and replace the "@" with a "." so people can find you!
