This owl took almost the whole skein of floss — and most of it was done with just one strand. It’s hard to see in this photo, but I used another variegated floss — sort of a brown/rust/red combination. It’s subtle, but I like it. I promised myself I would only do two of these, but I’ve already started a third one. They are so fun to stitch. I guess the old wool quilt is just going to have to wait a little while longer.
