Stitchy Saturday

Worked on a couple of things today.  I've been wanting to do this owl from the JCS 2011 Halloween issue.  It calls for 32 count raw Belfast linen which I don't have and would have to order online.  I was looking for a substitute and realized that I have linen that color in 28 count.  It's so small that the change in count only adds 1/3" to the piece.  And the floss is DMC.  So I went for it.

I had to put fray check on it because linen frays like crazy so while I waited for it to dry, I worked a square of my HAED.  It hasn't seen the light of day in awhile.
