Holy cow! Has it really been almost a month since my last post? I've added 6 more stitches to my Take A Stitch Tuesday Owl: the Barb stitch, Long Chain (blue stars at the top), Fancy Bobbin Edging, Raised Cross Stitch Flowers ( I put these in the wings), Pekinese and I'm currently working on the Oyster stitches to finish off the owl breast and around the face too. How to work all of these stitches can be found on Sharon Boggon's Pintangle website. This has been such a great project to work on for the last 34 weeks. Only 18 more stitches left to go.

I saw this cute crochet cell phone pattern on Ravelry ( Florence the Owl pattern by Irene Strange) and made one for each of my daughters.
This is the one I'm making for myself. Almost done - just have to attach the eyes.
I was in Arizona for a week and went for a number of great hikes in the desert. Hubby called this the stick-em up cactus.
