My Creative Space

Although it's nice having Khye back home again,
it also means I have less creative time.
But I did actually finish something this week - my retro swap.
He is made from materials reclaimed from wool jumpers and the floral heart is a piece of 1970's cotton fabric from my mum's stash. What do you think of him? Let's hope my swap partner likes softies and likes owls and likes purple and green and orange. I'm going to miss him sitting watching over our house. Lucky he can't talk 'cos he would have a few stories to tell!
For more creative stuff, head over to Kootoyoo.

Love your owl - I can understand that he would be very hard to part with. You may have to make another to take his place on the window sill.

Your partner would be mad in the head if she didn't fall head over heals for that owl. I'm sitting here trying to think of how I could bribe you to send him to my house and make something else for your partner.
