Welcome the Season with the Spring Fever Owl!

Looks like most of us are enjoying an early Spring this year and this owl definitely fits the mood of the season! Where winter was icy and pastel, Spring Fever Owl is all about brilliant, fresh colors and pretty, pretty flowers. But there's still a little furry and fuzzy there too, as Spring is a cool season after all! She's wearing a little Fuzzy Stuff and Very Velvet on her head and her chest is a little fuzzy in a hot pink Petite Peluche. The rest of her shimmers in silk and metallics.
Here she is back from the finishing parlor! Check out those pearls on the base, so sweet!
Here she is when she was still on her stretcher bars:
This owl's pupils are a breeze to create-- they are extra-large sized sequins in a black holographic finish. They give such a life-like sparkle to the eyes, I just love them! Her eye rings are Colonial Knots in a beautiful wool/silk blend.
Look at these sequins! So glad to see these flower shapes becoming more available to stitchers, they really add a special touch.
Her chest is a laid-fillings technique with a mix of furry and metallic threads:
I love Spring, I break out all of my pink and green clothes just as soon as I possibly can! Hope you all are showing your colors too and enjoying all this great early warm weather! See you back soon with another owl sneak peek!
