lazy sick day

creative space 18/05/09

i'm wasting my day watching buffy on dvd (just started on season 6) and stuffing an owl i've been working on. i think she's going to be just for me. made from 100% cotton, acrylic felt for the face with freehand embroidered eyes and beak. the wing is made from some houndstooth i found in my stash, not quite sure what kind of fabric that is. she's handsewn. originally i wanted to make her using my machine, as i cut out the pieces a few weeks ago, but my machine is playing up again (i will be spending my stimulus on a nice new one i think, i've had it with my current machine).

mandarins and oranges

and just because its so orange and cheery, heres a picture of a box of fruit i bought very cheaply at the markets. they taste delicious too! just what i need for cold.

now to continue stuffing, make a granny square and then off to work! we'll see how i go tonight :D

thank you. i'm really happy with how she is turning out.

i hope so too. i've got my vitamin c, cold and flu tablets and heaps of fruit. i'm hoping that will do me.
