A crewel owl pillow

This owl pillow is more of Daddy’s crewel work. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the circumstances of his giving the artwork to me but I can tell you it wasn’t originally a pillow—it was just a square piece of material with the artwork in the center. The crewel work is very clean and intricate. The entire piece is hand-stitched—Daddy covered every inch by hand. My sister-in-law helped me finish the artwork by turning it into a pillow. My son Chris loved it so I gave it to him after she finished it. Daddy has never seen the final piece but I’m sure he would love it.
