I just don't give a hoot !!!!!

Ok - Really I do give a hoot because
there has been some chirping going on about a Blog Hop
And "It's for the Birds" 

I really do adore all types of birds ...

But, I decided there couldn't possibly be a bird more intriguing than an OWL?
But I don't have any photos of Owl's!
So I decided to make one!
I used some Presencia threads that I had left over from the embroidery blog hop 
and some Satin Stitches to embellish this little freebie owl pattern I found online.

What better for a night owl to see you with than some mismatched buttons.
And don't you just love the vibrant colors !!!!

Would you like to see the final product ...
A Fabric Post Card
Made following a tutorial  by
Her post cards are absolutely inspiring.
And there are so many freebie embroidery patterns online that the possibilities for making unique postcards are endless ...

I also found a pattern by Sandy Gervais
"Owlivia - A Sewing Companion"
So I tweaked the pattern just a bit and came up with this ....

 This little Owl  can be used for holding needles, quilting rulers, or scissors ...

 
And a ribbon slipped through the back 
connects her to a container ...
Isn't she adorable
& such a cute way to clean up that
Sewing clutter!

..........................................................
 And after having so much fun creating owls
 I realized I left out one of the most beautiful birds of all

JUST KIDDING...

A Peacock ...
I love to look at them & I love to stitch them

So I decided to make a primitive "Peacock  Sewing Roll"
using a design by
Stacy Nash Primitives
 I made a pocket for threads, scissors, or quilting rulers ...
added a safety pin with three rings to hold  threads...
And felt hearts to store needles ...
Just Roll it up, tie the ribbon; & it's ready to fit into a
special sewing bag
(but that's another hop ...)

Have fun Bird Watching...
