Today I received my Christmas present from her.
Isn't this beautiful! Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice! It is made out of terracotta and Karen made it a few years ago and she said she has been waiting to find someone to give it to who would appreciate it - aren't I lucky!!! I love Christmas and I love this! Thanks Karen!!
I also have to show you this gorgeous fabric I found. I don't know anything about it other than it was for sale in my local quilt shop for $1 a piece - so of course I had to snap up a few pieces. there was one other print of tiny little push bikes and I didn't realise till I got home that I didn't have it in my pile so I am going back as soon as I can to grab some of that too!
Well, that is enough for me now - I am about to settle down and make another soft owl. I christened my first one Ollivetta but as soon as it's new owner, three year old Meghan, received her she exclaimed "I have got a hoot!" so now he has been renamed to HOOT! When Fly Boy saw the photos of Meghan with Hoot he jokingly said "I want a Hoot, I want a pink one!" So ever ready for a challenge and because I wanted to make another one any way, I am going to make a pink one and add it to his Christmas pile! So now to sew!
