This summer I was lucky to be able to go on vacation to the Jersey shore with my family. I must admit that it was definitely different because of Covid-19. What was not different was me planning on what to bring to stitch. Usually I bring my stand, my light and two or more projects because you just never know what you will feel like working on while away. This year I brought one simple project, no accessories or books other than what I usually keep in my stitching tote. My plan was to keep the stitching simple. I have a thing for hearts and fell in love with this canvas. When I began the project, I realized that I wanted a stitch for the owl. Good thing for me I save pictures of all the different stitches that I find on the web and I save them on my phone. I found this Cashmere Variation with Accents and thought it would be perfect for the body of the owl. I used Vineyard Silk for the Cashmere stitches and added a matching Kreinik for the accent stitches. I am very pleased with the way it turned out and will use this stitch again. Give it try!
