I look forward to receiving happy mail – craft subscription boxes, craft books and magazines are all welcome to land on my door mat. I’ve subscribed to the Craftpod subscription box for a while. I love the mix of embroidery projects and seasonal projects. The Winter Craftpod box arrived just before Christmas.

The Winter Craftpod contained three projects – the Starry Night Owl embroidery, Owl scissors case and a paper garland.

The first project I made was the felt Owl scissors case. I always enjoy working with felt and this was a sweet project to stitch. The kit included a small pair of scissors which fit neatly inside the finished owl.

Then I moved on to the Starry Night Owl applique hoop. Applique is a fun technique to add depth to a hoop and I love owls. This was a nice project and fun to stitch over a few evenings watching Inventing Anna on Netflix.

I used my sewing machine to stitch around the calico in the hope of preventing it fraying too much. Then I started adding detail to the owl, swooping over the night sky.

The owl was quite fiddly to embroider but I enjoyed adding stars in the sky and a crescent moon. I was happy to finish the hoop to coincide with the start of meteorological spring.
