WOYWW - more owls

Good morning all - I hope it is as sunny where you are as it was with us over the last few days.
Of course with all the sunshine around I have been out and about rather than crafting.
My table is loaded with things to do and sort out ...... and tidy up!

So... check out my little knitted items for the expected twins (not mine - Wipso's grandtwins in waiting) the fabrics to be made into a christening card, the gorgeous cotton perle I found at the car boot and my box of owly cards.


Also you can see the order of service for the 50th anniversary of Shropshire Community Council which I attended, with daughter M, on Sunday. We were in the splendid, red sandstone, Shrewsbury Abbey
I was a very proud mum. I snapped the display because M had created the display boards and they were sitting on the table cloths that I had made for them - what a team!!



Not much crafting then.
I did manage to stitch a few words on my little owl pictures after I had stitched them onto canvas.
They look a motley crew don't they.














OK folks - over to Julia's for the weekly blog hop - see you all later.

Love the knitties and have to say they would prob like 'Take That' embroidered on the front....they apparantly have different tastes in music though....Sam danced to the upbeat ones and Lexi danced to the slower ones :-)...a fab time was had by all.

Lovley post - your desk is a treat and so is the table at the abbey. Your owls are so cute too. Elizabeth x #83

Morti said...

Hey there Twiglet! Well, those display boards and cloths are something else, aren't they? Fab work by both of you! Love the owl embroideries - I looked at them and thought they were rubber stamps, so maybe you guys should think of starting your own line? I think they'd be quite popular!
