More pictures

Okay, so it's not really "more pictures" it's two more pictures.
I went to visit my grand-daughter and my great-grandson and forgot the camera. I was wanting to take a picture of Jayce with his new blanket - but forgetting the camera puts a damper on that idea. My daughter-in-law said she baby-sat one day and took about 124 pictures. I asked her to send me one.

So I went outside last night after finishing the little owl I made using some white wool at $42. per metre and the ribbon embroidery off of a hankie. I purchased a kit and it only took me a few hours to do the embroidery but then I had no idea what to do with the hankie. The owl said she wanted it for her apron so there ya go eh. I noticed after I got her sewed together that her one eye is a little higher than the other and her beak is a bit tipsy. Maybe she was into the hummingbird feeder and got too much sugar - fermented? This little owl tipsy and all is about six inches tall.

Back to the outside story. I was sitting in the garden with a couple of ladies from the apartment building and looked up into the pine tree. There were things on that tree that I'd never seen before. Well, I don't really look up that much unless I'm sitting staring off at the clouds or lying on the sofa looking out at the maples dancing in the windstorm - when we have one. Anyway I saw those seeds and pods and the ladies pointed out a few on the ground. They were kind of sticky when I picked them up like they had little hooks on them. I put a few in a little box to take to my friend Kathi Kuti who makes miniatures. I thought she might use them for her doll hats. I took a picture of these little things that I thought would make a hat - but forgot to put something beside them to show their comparison size.  Anyway there they are in all their glory.
imagine that the largest one is about the size of  a kidney bean. Too small for me to use as a hat for any doll that I make.

So now I'm signing off to go and do some writing - the Proprioceptive Writing that I've talked about before. 
You have a good one.

  1. Oh, I love your "tipsy" owl! So sweet, and I love the idea that she's been into the fermented sugar. ;)

    Hope you have a wonderful day--good luck with the writing!
