Here are some little owl ornaments I'm making for the Christmas market next Friday. Really they reminded me that owls just are cute and I don't need to fret about it. I should just give myself over to the pleasures of stitching them. (Apologies for the dire photos - we are lacking light at this time of year!)
Although I've been getting my sewing machine out fairly regularly (I have a very pretty gift project to share with you soon, on that note!) at the moment I'm rediscovering the joys of hand-sewing.
I can keep a little sewing pouch on the back of the sofa and get it out in odd moments - stitching on a button here and there while my son plays on his own for a few minutes in the morning (mostly we play together - since I work fulltime I have to make the most of my time with him!) Having little projects to hand here and there in the house was a crafty mama tip from my friend Ash and finally I'm making it work for me!
Finally a little mention for a cool blog hop hosted by some very cool ladies - seriously you'll want to know their blogs if you don't already!
