I was very industrious this weekend. I managed to catch my second cold of the season and it really kept me inside for the whole weekend. The temperature did too--it was in the teens and single digits-yikes!
But look at all that I accomplished. I was a sewing fiend! First my owl pillow from last week has a new friend. With bumblebees for eyes.
What would a group of owls be? A flock I wonder? Anyway, I am starting a flock.
I continued to use the same technique that I learned from Fat Orange Cat's blog, but changed the shape and look of the owl.
I also made this hat that I found on Curiously Crafty's blog.
and the inside lining...
The tutorial was certainly easy and that hat was fun to make, but I am not too happy with my finished one. The brim and overall hat is a little shorter than the original because I had to finish it a messed up way. I am going to retry it again and make it a bit longer or maybe follow the directions more carefully.
Oh yes, and Misty got a new necklace that is inscribed with dog language---bark, woof, howl, etc.
