These cute cards are from Cross Stitcher magazine, my hostess made a New Year's Resolution to stitch every Cover Kit in the month of receipt. However she hadn't bargained on CS changing it's design brief so much in the course of the year. Far too many of the cover kits have just not appealled to her so she has used other designs to make the most of the materials. Sadly the quality of these has decreased too and my hostess had to ask for replacement cards for this project. The originals were torn and dirty. Shocking. Anyway she stitched these owls from a different issue and decorated the cards using felt-tip pens. She feels the green one needs something more and will source some sticky flowers next week.
This delightful design is by San Man Originals from the Spooky SAL board. Hallowe'en is very under celebrated here. We didn't even get a single trick or treater call at the house! Something to do with being at the end of a dark country lane ... This design has been framed with some rather nice ribbon to disguise the fact that the frame is too big. The ribbon comes from the most easterly knitting shop in England. Frankly everything here has the suffix "most easterly" - it seems to be their only claim to fame. They even have the most easterly prison just up the road!
