Ruthy's Pencil Case

Ruthy made it onto her plane yesterday. And so did her pencil case. I did finish in time.

On our way home after a too-short visit with dear friends and family. Ruthy, our intern last year, flies back to Germany tomorrow. Think I'll get her pencil case done in time?

Fancy Owl

As I sit here in my painting clothes, ready to finish painting the basement walls, why not post a photo of someone dressed much nicer?

Fancy Owl lives up to her name with a glittery red satin body (it's hard to see the tiny pieces of glitter in the photo above but they're there) and flashy blue lamé eyes and peachy sequined beak and her lacy wings (made out of a lace collar, still in its package, left here by the previous tenants of the house; so glad I didn't chuck it with all the rest of the junk we chucked after moving in).

Accessory: removable pearl necklace.

Giggly Owl

If I'd made Construction or Painter Owl, I could've showcased that one today, in honor of the dozen middle and high school girls that descended on my home, wielding hammers and saws and rollers and brushes. (They're American Heritage Girls, earning their Home Care and Repair badge.) But instead I'll showcase another owl that fits their activities of the day just as well: here's Giggly Owl!

Accessory: nothing visual, other than the silly pupils going in different directions. But press the blue polka dot up on the right "ear" and Giggly Owl emits a squeak!

Army Owl

In honor of our sweet next-door neighbor -- the only boy at Sophie's party -- who finished up his final vision therapy appointment this week. It's been a long year but he persevered! So tonight we're going to celebrate with him!

I'd dubbed the little stuffie "Army Owl," but his new adoptive daddy soon renamed him Camouflage Ninja Owl. : )

Accessory: I rejected the idea of making a weapon (owls don't need 'em; they have their beak and claws) and didn't want to fiddle with other suggestions (compass, radio, flashlight) so finally settled on an eye mask, which Owl's daddy can wear too! And, unlike all of the other owls, this one's pupils are shifted way to the side, kinda like he's suspicious, on alert, ever ready for attack from all sides.
