Back in January my sister asked me to make an owl for some friends of hers expecting a baby later in the year. They love owls, they like purple and silver, so this little fellow emerged!
I used Stylecraft Special DK in Wisteria, Silver and a smidgeon of Saffron. A couple of small pieces of felt and some 9mm safety eyes for the eyes 🙂
I decided not to do the feet and tail as it was going to be for a newborn, who would eventually grow into a baby who gums everything then a toddler who chews everything and I didn’t want to have too much on there that they could chew at and risk pulling off!

… and I’m organising my photos of the past week. Here are a few of my favourites:
I’ll get back on over Thursday or Friday to post about what I’ve been up to and try to get some more pictures of my new toys up! The unicorn especially given that it’s probably one of my favourites out of all of the toys I’ve made!
My November challenge failed miserably, I’m not too upset by that though. I have got a lot done that wasn’t Nick’s blanket or writing!
I have had a few projects on the go for Christmas and they’re slowly but surely getting there (motto of my life it seems!) So here are two of the animals I’m currently working on, can you guess what they are? 😉
