Its mounted on one of those painting canvases and placed on a tiny easel. (I stained the wood so it would match the brown on the roof top)
I think I found the design in the Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. The only change was to outline the banner and bird--they just blended into the blue too much. Plus I didn't stitch my initials in the upper corner, I added another heart.

This owl was something I found in my mother's things. And my dad loves owls, (well so do I) so I decided to stitch it onto a tote bag for him because he uses them and I wanted to make it into something useful.
Wait 'til I show you what I've been working on all year! I couldn't share it with you while I was stitching it because it was to be a gift for my daughter. Its what I did with that special fabric that was handpainted, dyed for me. It came out perfect!
In the meantime, here's a happy picture of us at Christmas.
