Blackwork Owl by gatchacaz Blackwork Owl by gatchacaz
I came across this delightful little design in a group on Facebook. I asked the girl who posted the pic where she got the pattern from but she couldn’t remember. I ended up doing a Google search and was surprised to come across it straight away!

The kit comes in two options: 14-HPI Aida or 28-HPI Evenweave – I went for the latter. I swapped the black thread for DMC colour variations shade no #4025

This is a relatively easy design to do and total stitching time was probably about a week.

If you’d like to have a go yourself, you can purchase the chart here: [link]

Yes I have and I must be one of the few people who didn't really enjoy it!

I'm waiting for FFXIII atm!

O_o Why didn't you like it? We all knew that it wasn't going to be our typical FF RPG. It was just a fighting game ^^

ME TOO!! Can't wait for FFXIII and Lightning! :3 It's kinda sad cause I'm not gonna be able to play FFXIII versus :( Me doesn't have PS3 u.u

I just didn't like the way the battle system played - as a fighting game, it wasn't very good - too much like Smash Bros!

I like my Street Fighter too much - I'm waiting for Tatsunoko v Capcom on Wii and Super Street Fighter IV on PS3

Lots of good games coming out this year! I hope we get something special when FFXIII comes out - although I couldn't warrant the expense of another PS3!!!

Aww... but the characters are what matters.. LOL! I love using Warrior of Light, Cloud, Onion Knight and Tidus. ^^ They make me happy XD On my point of view, Dissidia is a very creative idea of a new type of fighting game :D I can't wait for Lightning to come out!!! :3 (FFXIII) The bad thing is that I'm not gonna be able to play FFXIII vs....

Reminds me of the tootsie pop commercial that had the kid and the owl in it.

Very good!! :)
I have this chart in my stash and haven't done it yet!! :( I will get to it one day!! Maybe I will have to change the colours for it tho-- instead of doing it in black.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I never used to be a fan of Blackwork but there are some really quirky designs about and now I'm hooked.

I like the colour change too (although someone who commened clearly thought my choice of colour was bland!!!! I dunno there's no pleasing some people).

Anyway, just cause it's Blackwork, doesn't mean you have to use black threads. DMC's colour variations are just perfect for this sort of work - expect to see more soon =)

Yes, I've seen them - they're really cool.

I know what you mean about being too busy. Work and studying consumes all my time - I wish I had more time to stitch =(

It's so cute! I really like how it looks spherical; it reminds me of a stuffed animal. The stitching is really well done, too!

Thanks hun, glad you like it. He was lots of fun to do but the patterns got a bit repetitive after a while.

I plan to make some stuff animals when I have more time and you can guarantee that you will see them here first!
