My owl

After so MANY days of promising to have this owl DONE, I am finally finished! I have such a hard time deciding on which buttons for the eyes! The eyes really make my toys come alive!

My latest owl

I have gotten my owl mostly done. I need to sew the buttons to the crochet circles and then I can place the yellow beak.

My mother in law also just brought over a beautiful collection of yarn her mother had left (Geraldine passed away October '10). 4 huge shopping bags of never been touched yarn! I am really excited about all the possible projects. I was thinking a new bedspread and shams.

My daughter's penguin

<p>Here is my daughter's penguin. I was going to put white felt underneath, but it didn't seem right for this little guy. Apparently I believe the eyes really are windows to the soul. It took me 15 minutes just to find the perfect button eyes.

I am finally done with being sick. I got most of the house straighten up so I can enjoy crafting again without feeling like I should be cleaning. I still have to get my kitchen done but I HATE doing dishes by hand and the repair man should be here tomorrow so I am going to let it be.

I have FINALLY finished the owl I started before I got sick. Here are my pictures:
