Pincushions Galore and more

Last week I found a new favorite shop on etsy

Typing with tea

She has these adorable felt stuffed animals, I just HAD to get the owl!!

This is what mine looked like.


Then I deciced to make it bigger, I enlarged the head and features by 125% and the body by 150% to get this!

Of course I couldn’t stop there, I had to make another one! and added ribbons around their necks

( I also added little feet to help them stand up better)


and a 4th one!

The 3 larger ones are having a little chat about the BLUE GUY!!

Hey, just because he’s little, doesn’t mean you can’t include him!!


Then a turtle was born too!


His head is huge also, I might want to change that next time too, we’ll see :)


Here he joined the owl gang, guess they are kind of ignoring him, looking up into the air….


I “might” use one of these for the pincushion swap- we’ll see :)


I also wanted to show you these, Laura finished her swoon top, she still has about 2 weeks to go!

And our other friends from church just had their first baby- Warren, haven’t met him in person yet!

and daddy is our new Youth pastor at church btw.

I gave them this quilt that was in McCall’s recently- they picked it out when they came for my birthday in January :)


Found this one on FB the other day :)


and this one too!

What an inspirational post. Sweet owls and turtle pincushion. Of course, I like to think you now have a family of owls living with you. Sweet quilts too!

The owls and turtle are just adorable. I can see that the owls are going to quickly become your obsession. :)
