Another week, another patchwork..

Well, only a little one this week. A little pram coverlet made using some of the additional squares from last week.
Backed and bound with the lovely rosy vintage sheeting...
and there's been some feathery snipping too this week....
I so love working with candlewick and blanket felt and I especially love making owls..
You have to keep an eye on them or they're off and away into the trees...
These are the last two of those lovely cotton crochet flowers...
and this fellow was decked out in bright primaries colours and has already been delivered to a store where he was immediately snapped up to be taken to a new home!
Hopefully he's getting lots of cuddles. I find with my bunting owls at events that little people love to stroke them against their cheeks... so sweet!
The workroom is always a tip after a productive week and it's been a bit non-stop around here lately...
I really ought to have a clear up before I start on an exciting new commission but I prefer to just distract myself by looking at the little things..
There's always lots on the barmy shelf to fill my eyes....
Not least these lovely flowers gathered for me by the boy... summer in a jug!
Oh and this little poppet hiding in a corner... he's gone to a new home too!
 They quickly fly the nest so more to be made this week and that commission. Something special for a big day in August... I love wedding commissions. So much responsibility and such a privilege. Back soon with more news. t.xx

All of your owls are wonderful...each one has gots its own personality.

And I really like the look of the tip you call your post-project workroom It's grand to see a reall life studio! xo

Your tip is fabulous. I could lose myself in there for days! What fabulous owls. I especially love the crocheted flower eyes.

Must agree, your Owls are delightfully whimsical!
Such attention to detail and colour combination.
Well done.

I just adore that little stripey owl at the bottom. At your "tip" of a workroom is fabulous! I could lose myself in there amongst all the lovely fabric!

My, what a lovely blog you have - a real treat for the eyes! I'm happy to have found you thru flickr. :-) Everything is pretty...the fabrics, the quilts, the owls, the buttons. I am in heaven!
