Janlynn Owl Cross Stitch Ornaments: Creepy or Cute?

JanlynnOwlOrnamentsI am always on the lookout for owls to stitch up, and having a set of owl ornaments sounded promising. But two of these owls sort of creep me out with their eyes…

For the most part I really like Janlynn ornament kits, they have all sorts of cute groupings. And I really like owl designs to stitch. But for some reason I can’t fall in love with this set… those two owls are giving me the stink eye. Maybe I’ll just stitch the other four and skip those two?

Seriously… I’m not going to say which ones. You tell me what you think. Maybe I’m just seeing things where there aren’t things to see.
What do you think; creepy or cute?

The full Janlynn Owl Ornament Kit is available at a great price on Amazon.
