Owls are born and some LOVIN'

yesterday I started making a set of owl pot holders for our new neighbor.

While I was at it, I button hole stitched around the owl pin cushion I've had ready for a while

It's been a while since I showed some PEANUT pics, so here's my husband playing around with him.
"rock a bye Peanut..."

look at that lovin!

and.... I finally remembered to have my husband take a picture of ME!
14 weeks now.

Here's the finished set and my son and I just dropped it off, she loved it :-)
