As promised last week, the Snowy Owl pattern is now available for purchase on my website! You have the option of purchasing the paper pattern or a digital pattern. Either way, you will get 6 pages of templates already traced. That means you can start prepping right away:)
Our grandson, Spencer Chad Nevin Counter Hatton (whew!), arrived right in time for Thanksgiving:) How exciting! Here he is just less than an hour old.
In my last blog post, I showed you how to prep the irises for the Snowy Owl block. Did you know that the Snowy Owl is the provincial bird for the province of Quebec? True story:)
So I started with the partial head, the gray detail and the eye. I just couldn’t wait to see those eyes.
Do you get the feeling that someone is watching you?
This small gray piece is the next one to be glued in place.
Then this dark gray one…
The large white body/leg section is the next piece to add.
And then this light gray piece. Notice how everything is lining up nicely? Even I am impressed lol
The next gray piece to be added is actually an extension of the gray piece already in place. I thought it would be easier to cut this large section in 2 smaller sections and try to make the join as inconspicuous as possible.
As I add each section, I am making sure that everything lines up to the traced image on the background. I use a pin and stab through the both layers to make sure it all lines up. Better to be safe than sorry!
Wow! It’s actually starting to look like something!
Til next time…
