I've just been having some fun today! And made a new 'friend'!
As the children were all playing with their friends, I got some chores finished up (and procrastinated on several others!!) And decided to make an owl. They seem as popular everywhere as they were last year.
I've seen them in jewelry, on cushions and shirts and ceramic ornaments as well as prim patterns. So here's my Olly owl, a woolie guy for fall, my own pattern.
His wings are lined with checked wool and I used the same for feathers.
I had to improvise for eyes and used rusty bells - kinda cute!
Got a couple of cross stitch projects to finish and my, it struck me how quickly you can lose the knack of it - I know what to do but I'm so much slower being out of practice and my fingers seem to cramp up a bit!!
I was thinking the same about my prayer and Bible study time - in the summer there's so much going on that it's easy to let it slide, so I need to practice bending my knees more!
Have a great week, friends! It's been good to catch up with you all and make new friends!
