Meet the Twits!

Hello friends - just popping in to introduce you to my newest family members, who landed this week!
Meet the Twits, three little owls made from wool and wool felt, perfect for autumn decorating!
I found the pattern and tutorial on TolenTreasures blog - just click here to go to the blog and you will see it on the right sidebar.

They look ready for the cooler weather all huddled together in this wood tote in my kitchen!
In fact my two girls love them so much, I've duly promised to make them some owls too - only they will be made in bedroom color co-ordinating felt!

Ohh, and we had another visitor here yesterday when my brother and niece came for dinner and brought Oscar, their adorable little S hi-tzu - he's so well behaved and fluffy and ever so cute!

I hope everyone has a great weekend - we are watching the news updates here, re. Irene and I sincerely hope it turns out to sea and fizzles out.

Best wishes


  1. vey cute!They will look great in matching bedroom colors.Oscar is a cutie as well!Have a great weekend!big hugs michelle

  2. The owls are very cute and so is Oscar!

  3. The Twits are adorable, Christine - you did them up ever so sweetly! And I love what Cathy does - she is so multi-talented...and such a "hoot" herself!! Oscar is adorable - looks so much like our dear Gazoo....Those Shih Tzu's have such loveable faces and wonderful demeanor. Unfortunately, Irene is bearing down already - we are far from her path, but I pray for others who are in it....Have a wonderful rest of the weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. I love your little owls. Too cute!
    I may have to try my hand a making a few.

  5. Oh my gosh Christine . . . those owls are adorable! You sure have a way with wool!

  6. Those owls are so adorable. I cant' wait to get to the fabric store. I think my little girls will love having them as part of the Fall decor soon to be around. Thanks for sharing the link. -Steph-

  7. Hey Christine, the owls are so cute. You did a wonderful job stitching them. I seen that tutorial too and wanted to try but haven't got it done yet. Thanks for your thoughts and well wishes re: Irene - she has not fizzled out but has killed 5 people already.

    Take care

  8. Hi Christine :)
    I don't know where I've been to have missed sooo many of your posts... I've done a lot of catch up reading tonight .. lol! .. Great fun ;)
    But where to start?
    I love your bread board paddle and your swan is gorgeous, I'm a bit envious of your lovely pumpkin pillows , I LOVE Pumpkins .. haha
    And your woolly pineapple ... soooo much to admire, you have been busy!
    Oooo and your little owls are sooo cute, I may have to have a go at them myself :)
    It was lovely catching up, but I can see I'm going to have to keep a closer eye on you so that I don't miss anything else :)
    Hugs Wendy x

  9. Love love love them Owls Christine. I am going to have to make some for my Pooh. She loves Owls. Great job!
    Hugs Trace

  10. Thanks for the link Christine! Your owls are adorable. Makes me want to spend the afternoon in my sewing room, I haven't made any in awhile! Can't wait to see the ones that you make for your daughters.

  11. I love the name "The Twits."

    Everything here is all about Irene. We don't expect to get a drop of rain from it although we are on the fringe. I'm nervous for my niece who should be in NYC to start her third year of college.

  12. The 'twits' are adorable!!! Love how they turned out Christine! I ordered a cute owl pattern a few wks. ago, but haven't made any yet. I will have to go check out yours. Might have to make a group of them like you did. Too stinkin' cute! LOL


  13. The Twits are so cute!I have appliqued a bunch of owls onto things but have made any softies yet...I love yours! Oscar is adorable too!!

  14. Those are SO cute! My daughter #1 loves owls, so they always remind me of her.

    Oscar is a cutie ~ he looks like my mom's dog, Sweetie.

    By-the-way, your background is lovely.

    Blessings from Ohio/USA...Kim<><
