An owl to keep watch over your couch

Well, I finally finished the Bulgarian owl stamp cushion… hooray! It took a little while for me to be happy with the design and find the time to complete it (I’m still working on that back-to-work routine). I wanted to achieve the simplicity of a 1950s children’s storybook illustration in bright, happy colours. This one has a little bit of hand embroidery too – the wing and feather details. What’s next? Maybe a squirrel, maybe a flamingo.

    With each stamp cushion I think, ‘oh yes, that’s my favourite.’ Until you make the next one which then takes over! But that owl is definitely my favourite. (Until I see the squirrel)

      That’s lovely Sasha! After labouring over getting his ears right, I have finally cut out the squirrel so hopefully I can finish him when we have a public holiday later this week.
