The Cutest Owl!

Here it is Friday and too warm !  It is actually going to be 85 today! Well, on to happier thoughts.  First, a big thanks to all of you who have taken time to read my blog.  I have been out of comission for a few days fussing with the pillows you all encouraged me to make.  Not nearly as simple as we thought.  The fabric presented two big problems,  the design of the checks and the lines of quilting.  I  won't go into all the details suffice to say they have kept me and the SBA( a former engineer) busy trying to get things to match.
I have always thought that you folks out there in blogland are the nicest people around.  Well, Barbara over at "To Stitch or Not to Stitch" blog has proven me correct!!! I mentioned in a comment that I loved the little JBW owl she had shown on her blog.  She promptly gave me not only the pattern but the lovely threads that she had used!! The owl is just adorable.  I have the absolutely perfect little frame for him.  You should take a trip over to her blog ( a terrific blog by the way) to see the lovely little pillow she made with the same pattern. I  would like to pass on her kindness.  The first comment that says they would like this pattern will get it.  I will send any extra threads that I have along with the pattern. 

 He's a bit fuzzy thanks to my camera, but aren't those colors wonderful?

 See what I mean about the frame  being just right!

Notice the pretty fan design on the corner.  I bought this frame several years ago at a craft show in Ohio.  I wish I had gotten all the frames she had!!

Well stay cool and have a wonderful week-end!!!!
