This cute little owl peered out at us from under the stone in the zoo. He kept coming back and peeping out, and we couldn't resist taking this photograph. His eyes seemed to glow in the dark under the stone, and I think I managed to capture that same feeling when I converted the photograph into a cross stitch chart. This chart contains a fair amount of "confetti" stitching - necessary for a spectacular almost photo-like final result. Colours may seem odd as you are stitching them, but have faith, at the end, when you take a step back from the work, this little guy will be peering back out at you bright eyed! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic cross-stitch, patience, and time!

I've been crafting in many forms since I was 5 years old. I learned to knit and sew at that time, and the basics of crochet. In my teens I learned to tablet weave, and also took up cross-stitch. I re-taught myself crochet a couple of years ago, and haven't found a pattern that has defeated me yet. I am the person behind Paine Free Crafts, and that's where most of my sales are done now. I'm not very active on Craftsy I'm afraid, but I will be back!
