Last week, I was invited to a craft night at a new friend's apartment. (Well, technically we met about a year ago, but being that I was m.i.a. from seminary community last year, I think it's safe to say she's a new friend.) (Sidenote: you should check out her blog. I love love love it!!) So a bunch of woman came and hung out and worked on various projects: card-making, scrapbooking, knitting, breastfeeding...and I felted a little friend for the owl that wasn't part of the HP club. Do you remember him from my Pigwidgeon post? I've decided to name him Charlie 'cause he's just so cute. But back to last week's make...So I went to craft night, and it was so much fun getting together with other woman and talking and laughing and eating and crafting all sorts of different creations together. I brought my needle-felting stuff and Charlie (to help me explain what I was doing). And this is the little owl who emerged that night:His name is Amadeus...'cause he's kinda funny looking. (Sorry if there are any Amadeuses reading this.) I think I need to make his eyes bigger, and that would make a difference. I liked him when I was finished...with his little tuft and his umpire belly. But then I brought him to my office to bring a little cheer, and I set him and Charlie on top of my printer and...
...well, Charlie looks a little suspicious of his beady-eyed friend. And I can't blame him. Unfortunately, I didn't bring my needles to work, so the edit will have to wait. Until then, I'll just have to let them get acquainted and see what happens.

On another note, I'll be posting the results for the Jam/Marmalade Giveaway tomorrow (July 3rd) morning. So if you haven't commented yet, and you want a chance to win, leave me a comment on the Strawberry Fields Forever post. Good luck, everybody!


  1. Yay for breastfeeding at craft night! :) That made me laugh. So, I'm pulling out my sewing machine tonight. Let the real crafting begin!

  2. I totally love Amadeus JUST the way he is!!

    He kind of reminds me of both Eeyore and Oscar the Grouch at the same time. And his mohawk tuft just makes the ensemble so complete.

    It's just my opinion (which, isn't much as the non-creator), but I don't think you should change a thing! Charlie will get over it soon enough. I think they'll be good friends.

  3. I am so glad that you posted the owls. My sister was visiting this past weekend, and I was telling her all about them. Now I can send her a link and show her your amazing creations.

    I love the name Amadeus, by the way. You are continuing to inspire me in my search for good robot names!

  4. Amadeus is growing on me. And Charlie is looking a little more friendly today. We'll see how it goes. I think this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. :o)
