Little owl

I saw something like this some where, not sure where but had a few minutes between cleaning out cupboards, ugh what a job, and sewing more birds.
The cupboard cleaning had to be done, there are still more to do, but oh boy its difficult when you cant kneel and getting up off the floor is difficult.
For some reason I am aching again today.
I loved the little fat look of this guy, he was an experiment, possibly more later.
Young Mason is giving his poor mother the run around, I am going up tomorrow so I am taking her a large bag of craft stuff so she can do something while she is up there.
He has to have a skin graft tomorrow so she is in a panic and it is so far from home and she is bored to tears but cant leave him. Not sleeping either and she says the food is pretty strange and she has to buy it. Poor child.
Her partner is in WA and we are all down here.
I have packed stamps, paper, sketchbooks, pencils, paints,glue, scissors, wool, buttons, sewing stuff, not that she sews but she might be so bored she will learn, beads etc. I just hope Mason doesnt swallow any! Put it all in a big zippered bag so I hope she can keep it out of his reach. Apparently he keeps escaping from his room, as any 3 year old would.
I worry for her.
Back to trying to get some semblance of order in my life.

The things we can dream up to give us a break from cleaning! But the owl is lovely; worth getting up off the floor for!

Delightful owl. You are a busy grandmother - as I have been for a week with my daughter-in-law away as she does most of the house-work.
Today was so quiet - three went to work at 6.30 and three to school at 8.30. Another away for a few days. The house was almost silent but there was washing and stuff to do - and feeding the guinea pig and rabbit. I still managed to read a Kerry Greenwood book in 24 hours though!

It is so stressful when a child has a medical issue. Hope all goes well.

Loved the little owl, maybe I will work at creating one too! You give me so many ideas for my mail art, Penny! Hope the aches don't last long.

You have really captured the little owl to perfection here. We have them all over the farm and that one you have done is so good.
