A New Favorite : :

The Owl parade continues today with the kids favorite one yet! If you didn't see yesterday's post - I mentioned that I decided to cut the giveaway a little early, to end right on Earth Day. As much as I love creating these little dolls, making them is usually slow, quiet work, and at this speed seems something better suited for late fall, early winter. Where I can sit peacefully, knitting their pieces and sewing there seams and details by hand. So, I plan on doing this again when the cold comes back around. And, after the giveaway, I will be sharing lots of other new things, many new dolls and felted goodness, and no doubt - new pillows!

There are only two days left until the winner of the giveaway will be announced and I appreciate everyone who has visited and commented. After listening to Haila play peek-a-boo with this owl, under the dining room table, I was inspired to take these photos.
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. Haila named this Owl - Molly Owl :


Thank you again for all the nice, funny, encouraging comments these last two weeks, honestly.

Today my son Jacob turns six - Happy birthday to my sweet boy!
