Attempting a mobile

You might recognise the pictures above and below from recent 'week in snapshots' posts. 
I've been working toward making this rainbow of baby owls. I'm going to attempt to turn them in to a baby mobile for a friend of mine who is expecting at the end of the year.
So far they look pretty cute, but hatching them all was the easy part, now I've got to figure out how to execute the next part of my plan and I'm slightly anxious that I may not be able to pull it off.
Wish me luck.
It's been great fun hooking these up and they are wonderful for using up left over yarn.  I've been really enjoying working with some Tissa yarn left over from my Starburst Blanket project earlier this year.  I'd forgotten what a dream that is to work with, I'm in danger of becoming a yarn snob (which is not good for the purse when living on a budget!). 

Pattern for the owls can be found for free on Ravelry here.  I've been wasting far too much time on Ravelry recently, but it is so much fun looking through the piles of awesome patterns out there.  The only problem is my queue of projects keeps growing and I have to spend far too much time at work and not enough time with hook and needles in hand :)
