This simple owl was one of my first cross stitch projects. My mother helped me frame it and I received a blue ribbon at the fair for my uniform stitches.
My Auntie LOVED owls, a symbol of knowledge, and decorated her home with them. I gave my cross stitch owl to her as a gift. She recently passed away and I was given the cross stitch owl back. I love decorating with it and it always reminds me of her.
