Stitch a Burrowing owl from Hook Line and Tinker's new owl collection. There are 5 Northern Owls to stitch - Barn Owl, Burrowing Owls, Great Horned Owl, Saw Whet Owl, Snowy Owl, all with their own unique tonal palette of 3 bold colours. Of course, if you wanted something less vibrant you could substitute your own colour choices . . . or even mix and match or add MORE colour.
Did you notice the fullness of the image and all that satin stitch? LOTS of stitches. They take a fair bit longer to stitch up than some of the other patterns from Hook, Line & Tinker, but they can always be simplified and adjusted for your own preferences.

A little bit about Hook, Line & Tinker . . .
All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are designed by Laurie Dolhan from beauitful Nova Scotia. Her business is a reflection of her values; which are to care for people and respect for the environment. She focuses on creating patterns that are unique and modern in style. The limited colour palette and use of recurring motifs is purposeful - finished hoops hang well as mix-and-match groupings and tell a cohesive story within a theme. Some patterns are easy peasy (Level 1), others are more ambitious (Level 3). But all allow for creativity, experimentation, and calm.
The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalised patterns are printed onto the fabric in her studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. All the packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact, to reduce environmental impacts via shipping. Paper, including recycled content, is used in lieu of plastic. Whatsmore, is that Laurie donates a minimum of 5% of the profits to help women and children experiencing homelessness. This company is amazing don't you think?
