Rust Dyed Owls

 I participated in Anna Hergert's Exploring Line:  Make Your Mark challenge in August.  I took the rust dyed cloth I had made and by following the rusty lines made by washers and wires I found 8 owl faces. I used buttonhole stitches, chain, stem, french knots, seed and fly stitches. 
 It was a fun piece to stitch.  Thanks Anna for the challenge :)
My sunflowers are definitely loving September's heat.

Wishing you all joy this day :)

  6. I love how your eyes spotted the Owls in your rusted piece of cloth. With your stitchings they all show their individual personOwlities. Love that big beautiful Sunflower. Some day I want to grow some but here I have no sun for them with all the giant pine and cedar and oak trees.

  15. What fun! It's amazing that you found all those owl faces in the fabric (and I can see a couple more too, believe it or not!!). There were some sunflowers at the market this morning but by the time we got there the best ones were gone. Hopefully I'll get there earlier next week and can get some.
