Owl's progress

The owl's wings are made up of a variety of stitches and patterns. Having done the french knot stars the lower wing is a trellis of satin stitch and detached chain with french knot centres.

Trellis stitch
The feet and long tail feathers are variations on satin stitch.

Completing the tail feathers.

Long and short wing feathers.


  1. It's coming together beautifully, and I love his feet!

  2. Owl is looking intriguing - love the colours and the variety of stitches very cleverly used. Can't wait to see the next installment.
