Dandy Dreams Done

I finished Dandy Dreams - what an enjoyable project to stitch. I wish the photo showed the buttery yellow color of the linen better than it does. I think this is the first piece I've ever made that didn't have a misplaced stitch in it! I'm so used to fudging it - I could hardly believe it when everything fell into the right place. Though I did change the yellow designs in the border, since I didn't like them being asymmetrical - this way they look more like full dandelions in bloom.

Here's July's owl - this was a really quick one. I'm certainly amassing quite an owlery - they'd fit right in at Hogwarts. The January owl reminds me of Hedwig.

I have had such trouble uploading and placing pictures, and finally realized that there was a new editor that made everything easier. It's so nice that everything doesn't load at the top of the page anymore!
