WIP's Wednesday

First up is an owl - probably going to be a wall hanging over my bed, just because I love it so much and it goes with the curtains behind it :o).
It needs another border on it, then quilting and binding.
It's from an All People Quilt pattern.
Pattern here.

Next is an advent calendar I'm making for my niece and nephew, who I'm going to see at the weekend (sorry about the pics, I don't count photography as one of my skills), it has a green border on it an inch wide and needs cream borders around the corners, so it encompassed the corner squares, then I'll be using a fab strippy Christmassy fabric to fill in the gaps on the sides and top and bottom, then each blank space will have a pocket - this is going to be filled with a game from Pretty Patches magazine, like pairs, but using a piece of fabric as the pair part - I'll post it when I've finished it.

I'm going to use seed beads on cotton for the tinsel in the trees - half of one done below and only another thirteen to go.

Happy stitching!

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
