Interesting fact no. 4, owls, owls and more owls!

I love Owls. They seem to follow me, they are something that keep cropping up over and over again. My most successful cross stitch kit design for Coats Crafts was of an owl. I have a small collection of owl ornaments which live on top of the grandfather clock given to me by my mum, grandma, husbands grandma and my mother in law. I also love making owl softies, I think it's the big eyes that do it!.

This week, Hooty came to visit. He flew out of my fabric stash basket, flapped around the sewing machine and then landed on my desk.



Hooty looked lonely, so I made him some (girl!) friends.



Caught the owl bug, kept going and before you know it, Hooty had a gang.



When I design for Coats, I usually have to use easily sourced fabric or Rowan as they are part of the Coats group. It was nice to finally use some of the fabric I've been finding myself. This little lot came from Kitty Craft.

Oh my goodness such lovely owls. I had an owl obsession a month or so ago too!

Good luck with trying to find jumpers to felt. I do manage to find them ocassionally but the colours are often a bit boring.
