As always, thank you so much for your interest and wonderful comments on these little owls! It has been an absolute blast putting the combinations of wool, felts, fabrics, and threads together, with my helpers, for the parade and giveaway. The giveaway has been running from April 12th all the way through today - Earth Day, April 22nd! To Win : : All you have to do is follow and leave a comment. Today I'd also love for you to share something that you do in an effort to be a good steward of our planet. Stuff like recycling, growing your own food, anything to be more green! A winner will be chosen randomly from the comments, they will be notified by email tomorrow, and I will announce them here, as well. Good luck, have fun and be green!
The kids are always eager to help with choosing the yarns and the fabrics, and so it's only fair that they get to name them --- But, today Mr. Cracknell decided he wanted to name this owl - Elwood OwlYou can read more about the history of Earth Day, as well as the mission and the core issues behind it here.
