I did some more work on the Parham Owl in the last two days of classes with Jenny.
His little body is now covered:
There were discussions as to whether this looked more like a manatee or a goldfish. No decision was reached.
The basis for his chest feathers was accomplished:
Right now, it looks like Showgirl Barbie's outfit, but it actually, truly, really will turn into the owl's chest.
I also have half of his head covered with needlelace, the point of one wing covered, and another feather or two on his face. Considering that I almost never stitch more than six stitches in any class I take while I'm taking it, this is a miracle.
Alas, this class ended today. I have three "free days" in which I'm going to try to catch up with the motifs I need to do for my online classes, then I get to take another class from Jenny.
