I don't often get obsessions, I am not very faddy, I tend to flit about many interests at a time, fads are more my husbands thing, as I like to tease.
Anyway, I think I am developing a thing for owls, an obsession maybe. the other night I had a vivid dream about owls, which I only remembered after thinking my winter tree needed an owl. So, above and below are pics of my first needlefelted owl, he is only about 2 inches tall and comes complete with button eyes (I couldnt work out how to needlefelt eyes). I think he is sweet, and liked how quick and satisfying needlefelting turned out to be (can you see he has wings too?). I had been scared to try it, although I have had the 'gear' for a while, as my sister in law here and also here, who is soon to start her own blog... gave me a needle and some wool last summer.
I would share with you some of my other owl finds as some are pretty cute, here, here and here. And how did I miss that one of the month of softies last year was birds, but had so much owl cuteness??? I must have been asleep or something (for a whole month!!) .
Yesterday in town I also bought an Oilily bandana for the fabric, some of which I have already covered my smallest diary in (the diary that has been uncovered since its beginning in september as I hadnt found fabric I liked enough), and look what the design is called...
