Absolutely stunning!!!! Definitely worth all your time and effort.
Thank you!!! Christine
Wow! Stunning! Beautiful! I absolutely LOVE him! You did such a fantastic job picking the colors to make him look so real. wow... ***FLOWERS***
I tried to make him look like the one on EmbLib.
well, you sure did a gorgeous job!! I looked last night, I saw that the owl is on sale for $1.08...no Tiger eye. Did they have the eye of the Tiger on sale too because I missed that sale :(
Yes on got it last week on sale.
wowwwwwwwwwwww awesome hugs
Thank you so much. Christine
I bought this beautiful design in hopes that one day I could sew it. I'm planning ahead. LOL Your work is exquisite.
Now's the time to do it. Pick a rainy day. When better to sit and sew??? Christine
Thank you for saying. Christine
Breathe taking! Wow, I read about the 2 needle changes, 12 hours and 122000...that is amazing. :)
Probably the biggest design I will ever embroider. Christine
My gracious. That IS a piece of art. He comes right off my screen toward me. Congrats on finishing!
Thank you. I'm looking for a suitable frame now. Christine
Beautiful Job!! Nice work!
Thank you. I now see they have an owl on sale.
It's beautiful and your thread choices are wonderful.
I tried getting the threads as close to what EmbLib had done and I only think the eye could have been yellower! Christine. There wasn't as many colours as you might first think.
That is priceless! Beautiful! Great job!
I don't think I could give it away now after the time effort. Christine
A great description of the design. Love Christine
This is terrific! What size needle did you use, and what type of fabric ? I don't mean to be nosey, but I have been to intimidated to attempt something like this. This is truly a work of art!
Hi Nadyne. I used a cotton which I ironed a light interfacing on the back and then placed a fairly thin wadding and of course hooped it with stablizer and out of habit more than anything I float another piece of stablizer which you probably don't need with all the other layers. But I know you could do it too. I think getting the fabric and layers right to begin with helps a lot as the design get denser as it goes along. Have a go. Let us see what you come up with? Luv Christine
Wow!!!It is Stunning...Great work done
Penny said it so perfectly! may I add a Wow!
Thank you also. It was a big project!
I admire your perserverance in stitcking with this project. It is a fabulous and deserves to be hung in your house where everyone can enjoy it. I often think of these designs as being for multineedle machines, but you just proved that a single needle can do it too! Good work!
Just needs lots of patience and TIME!!! Love Christine
Stunning is the perfect word! ~hugs~
Thank you for your kind comments. Love Christine.
Thank you. Love Christine
It is gorgeous.......great design and great stitching!
It is a terrific design. It stitched out beautifully and I had no trouble. All the edges were covered as each colour sewed out.
A big thank you for looking!!
This is amazing.. Beautiful stitch out and detail.. May I ask what was total stitch count..
OOPS see question has already been answered..;-)
It was nearly 122000 even more for the larger size!!!
A beautiful masterpiece!
Indeed it is. I'm very pleased with it. Love Christine
Thank you. Not usually the sort of design I would embroider. Love Christine
Beautiful work :)
Thank you for commenting. Christine
It has stitched out lovely. Shirley
Thank you Shirley.
It certainly stitched out wonderfully. Love Christine
wow , it is stunning, how many hoopings did you have to do
Only the one thank goodness! I used a 6 x 10 hoop!
I can't wait to get a frame to finish it off!!!
Wow, that's impressive, well done!
Thank you Lidia.
this is beautiful. you need to send it to embroidery library, you may receive a gift. again beautiful.
Thanks for the idea. I'll do just that. It will be a first. Luv Christine.
Stunning! What a beauty! I love the detail, the superb shading, the expert digitising. And you stitched it out beautifully! How many colours did you use? The yellow of the eye has 4 shades I think, and the white to grey too, the orange to brown - it must have been an nice collection of threads you used!
Thank Mops. There wasn't so many colours at all. Not as many as you might think nor as many as some other designs I've stitched. The most I've done is I think 42 colours on a small Christmas circle picture. Luv Christine.
AWESOME !!!!!!! I WANT TO STITCH ONE OF THESE !!
Go ahead and have a go. You'll love the finished result. Christine
Very eye catching looks lovely is it what they call a photo design or just an embroidery design? I know how surprised I am some times how long it takes to sew out an embroidery design with a lot of colour changes
well worth it though yours looks great
I think you might mean photo stitch but this is just a normal design but does have slight shading.
Thank you for kind comments!!! Christine
wow, it looks fantastic. 12 hours is a long time and here I was thinking 2-3 hours was a long time to stitch a design.
This is the longest project I've undertaken. I suppose you could do it over a few days but once I start I like to finish. Christine
It is simply stunning Christine. I love anything that Embroidery Library does, except their designs are so dense. It looks fabulous. Love and blessings Chris
It wasn't too bad to begin with but of course as colours overlap towards the end it got denser. You right.
You can almost feel him in front of you
I think so and now there is an "owl eye" on EmbLib which I'm tempted to try!!! Will I??? Christine
Gosh, that's unbelievable, where did you get the design from? Jo
It is from Embroidery Library, love Chris
Sieht ganz toll aus
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your stitching experience. I have the same design for the 5 x 7 frame. I will remember to slow down the machine. Great idea.
Good luck. You'll love him and also change the needle a few times especially if the thread starts to keep breaking. Love Christine
How very special love him
Thank you. Christine
So real . He is looking right into my soul. Fantastic. What size hoop did you use and....... how many stitches?, Great job :)
I used a 6 x 10 hoop and this is the middle size design Embroidery Library has with almost 122000 stitches. Best wishes Christine
WOW! He's just gorgeous. What a lot of work for you, but well worth it for the beautiful results. Great job!
It is very stunning which is what tempted me in the first place. Christine
