Safety first...

After last week being a bit hit & miss, I decided it would be safer to enter this week by setting a few ground rules to life, and a check list...

1.  hair to remain attached to head  ✓
2.  tooth to be mended  ✓
3.  no more teeth to be broken (fingers crossed, but avoid chewy sweets as a precaution)
4.  avoid the headbutting of sewing machine (so far, so good!)

Next, a check list for crafting...

1.  finish the two commissioned applique cushion covers  ✓


2.  more pink owls for Etsy  ✓


3.  more items in general, in pink, for Etsy (well, they are still wip's, but well on the way)


4.  email all the Toadstool Swappers with their partners details  ✓
(however, if you have yet to receive these details, please let me know)

I also had the first issue from my new subscription to Selvedge magazine arrive, turned to page 15, and a couple of minutes later, had purchased this little tiny 'tweeter', so cute!

How cute is 'tweeter'. She's a clever girlie. I like the stripey bird too.
Your owls are fab too - of course. :0)

I need an owl and I am going on my holiday this weekend. I can't cope. It's not fair.

Beautiful cushions.

The owls are just precious. Love the way the first one seems to be carrying the flower in its beak!

I'm glad you made your checklist to keep yourself safe. You made it all sound very humorous! I'm glad you're OK.

Oh I love making lists, but somehow I never manage to stick to them. I hope they work better for you, especially the ones to do with teeth and dentists (aaarrgh!)
Love you little pink owls, very cute.

Good job checking off things on your to-do list :o)!! I really like those tiny owls. They're so cute, but they look like they're going to fly away soon! Have a great weekend!!

I've just read about your bad fortune in your last post - it sounds like you've been having a real old time of it. I just wanted to say 2 things - Firstly, what great eye candy you have in this post Mrs President, and secondly, I would have loved to play in the toadstool swap, however i'm feeling a little overloaded so decided to sit this one out. Now i need to go and catch up on a weeks worth of blogs to read...
