I started this last weekend (5/19). I did the house and realized (as usual) that I added an extra column so I quit. I restarted it again yesterday. Between entertaining my four nephews (1, 3, 8 and 12 years of age) and taking care of regular household chores I just finished it. I bought this project at Shakespeare's Peddler's here in Hattiesburg. The kit contained the pattern and specialty threads. I really like it, especially the owl. For some reason, the last couple of years I have been attracted to stitching owls. I really enjoyed this one because it was a quick and easy stitch.
