Toowit Toowoo!

Hello bloggers! thank you for all your lovely comments about my quilts.  I have to say, I'm definitely in a quilty mood at the moment.  I don't know how long it will last,  probably 'till the winter gloom makes it too hard to see the fabrics properly!

As a diversion this week I made some owls from the rest of my wool pieces.  I'm not usually a fan of toy making, or anything that involves cutting and sewing fiddly shapes, but these were easy and fun to make and I think they're really cute.  The bits of old crochet lace give them a bit of character and I even found a basket "nest" the right size for them :)



There was a bit more quilt making with the squares I cut out ages ago.  There were enough for a cot size quilt which was nice and quick to put together.  Backed with a  peachy pink dotty fabric and bound with blue and white stripe it would make a sweet gift for a baby girl.  I'll be taking it (and the owls) along to the craft fair, but it'll probably end up in my etsy shop, maybe along with the matching doll quilt.  



Right! I'd better go and catch up with some housework as the ironing fairy doesn't seem to have visited lately :(
Bye for now

  11. An ironing fairy! Now wouldn't that be wonderful. But I think you can be forgiven a little ironing neglect when you have made such a delightful hoot of owls!

  17. What a nest of cheeky-looking owls you've made! I love the soft colours and the lacy bits just add that little something special! Well done! Beautiful quilt too. I do admire all you quilt-makers, I wouldn't have a clue! Though my crochet hook gets a good work-out and I'm in a cushion-making mood at the moment!
    Please send the ironing fairy over here when she's finished at your place!

  19. Ooh, Debbie, please keep some owls aside for your Etsy shop - they are just so cute. I'm loving all the owls that are around this season, but yours are the sweetest I've seen. Especially all lined up in their basket like that!
    Gorgeous quilt as well - that will be one lucky little girl who receives this one.
    Happy Sunday,
