It makes my embroidery efforts look tiny in comparison, as shown here by the Crafty Librarian at the first 2009 Sydney Brown Owls Meeting.
Yes it really is something i have hoarded since 1989, with intentions of completion. At Brown Owls the other night i made progress on it for the first time in years and have nearly finished the bow.
I'm yet to recall the colour of thread i used for the eyes but have most of the other threads from my yr9 T&D class in my stash. Mr Blue-eyes didn't seem so keen to have it on the couch with our modern ikea cushions but i'll work on him.
I enjoyed my first Brown Owls meeting, being able to talk crafty goodness with kindred spirits is a nice change from work etc. And meeting lovely gals that either have creative jobs or manage to be creative in other ways is very inspirational.
And having never been a girl guide etc i'm looking forward to earning some merit badges.
