We had another wonderful, golden October day here, so I spent a lot of time outside - walking through the shingle on the shore, sitting watching the river and the ships, just enjoying doing nothing. I am allowing myself a few days crafty break and making the best of the good weather - I crafted so much last week that I have enough for the week to come.
This owl is a cover for a new journal I am making, 21 x 32 cm. The owl is one of a package I won last year, and just needed to be ironed on to the linen, which I had already fringed. I sewed it onto some brown cardstock, and sewed on a strip of fancy burlap, some lace, and a few bits and bobs as autumn embellishments. I glued it to the gold corrugated card, which I in turn glued to a piece of thick, scrap card to make it durable in use. I am linking to AJJ, 'deep in the forest', then every forest has its owls, which glide silently among the trees, and observe all that is going on. I hear an owl outside here every night, but have not seen it up till now.
Here are some pictures taken on my walks today:
Have a great weekend you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
