A few stitches for Friday Night With Friends

I enjoyed doing a bit of stitching last night while my cake baked. I have been slowly appliqueing owls onto what will eventually be a cushion for my niece. Last night I managed to finish off the middle sized owl and start the outside edge of the large owl.

Medium sized owl - Outside edge completed

Detail of blanket stitching 

Large owl - Outside edge started

I love the bright fabrics for the owls which came with this kit. I'm think they may be Amy Butler fabrics.

And the cake went down well with my visitors this morning too. So all in all, a good night's work. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else did.

Enjoy your weekend,
Tracy

Hi Shez. Thanks for your lovely comment and all the other lovely comments you've left me today. I'm glad you enjoyed reading my blog. I'm heading off to bed as I have a nasty headache but will pop over to your blog in the next couple of days to have a look. Cheers, Tracy.
