Manic Monday! Embroidery

Here is what I've been working on this week. He will join my owl I shared on Thrifty Thursday... and, if you look closely, you can see another one of his friends behind the frame. (He came from Urban Outfitters). It took me about 3 nights to embroider this owl from design to finish. I borrowed a book from the library about all kinds of embroidery stitches for a few new ideas... thus the cool circle stitching behind the button eyes! The green ruffles are made from some vintage seam cover, and the buttons are vintage from my husband's grandma's stash! I hope you like him!
