I had to go and collect a book for myself from the bookshop today and while I was there I picked up this book for my littlest niece Meghan's birthday! I love it! it is too cute and very Australian! I would have loved to photograph all of the pages for you but that would spoil the surprise. I know non international followers wont be able to get their hands on this little gem though so I have included some pics. The blue wrens on the cover are the same as the ones that flit around my yard all day long. So cute and so tiny!
I love the extra note that says "There were six lamingtons, none left now!" How funny!
Here is the inside back cover which shows just a snippet of each page. Just too cool! Wish my boys were little enough for me to read it to them again. It is just such a classic Aussie read for a little one!
After enjoying the book I managed to get some sewing done today and completed my seven little owls.This one is called Wonder Owl on account of the red and white striped belly - reminds me of Wonderwoman!
And here they are all together perched on my yet to be decorated Christmas tree.
I quite enjoyed making these and I actually managed the hand sewing required for the mini yoyo eyes without my hands getting too sore. I have to move on to some other projects next but I think I will be coming back to these again - maybe even before Christmas.
Till next time......happy stitching!
