My Owl's

Lynne over at Lily's Quilts hosts a Small Blog Meet to help small bloggers meet other bloggers and to get their stuff out there. I certainly qualify with my whole four followers. Stop by and check her meet out:

Small Blog Meet


I am currently working on a set of embroidered owls. I have no idea what I want to use them for. It is a set of seven from an Aunt Martha's iron on transfer set. I originally was going to make a quilt with them by working with my grandmother, who taught me how to embroidery and have her make a set and I make a set as well, combine them, and make a whole quilt. Sadly my grandmother passed away in March so that plan won't work out too well.



I've been using a set of variegated size 8 perle cottons that I purchased from Joann's for the inner feathers, branches, and leaves. I'm loving the way it is turning out. The only indecision I have is in the color of the eyes. Because there are seven owls and they are all sitting on branches the only distinction between them will probably be the eyes. I guess I'll figure it out as I go along.




Until then, I found this adorable little owl paper toy at My Owl Barn, aka one of my favorite sites in the world because I'm in love with owls. If you enjoy owls, this is the place for you.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back to see what else I've been working on! Also, if you have any ideas for these owls, leave a comment, I'd love to hear your ideas!
