Owls

Last week I managed to finish the owl mobile that I've been making for my friend who is expecting her first baby at the end of the year. I'm happy to report that she was thrilled with it.

I took about a million photos but instead of posting a whole bunch I've used a whizzy photo app on my phone to put together this little montage.
I can't tell you how much fun this was to make. I covered an embroidery hoop in a few rows of rainbow crochet to make the frame. It was a little fiddly putting it all together but I'm so pleased with how it turned out. It got lots of positive comments when I took it in to work for Amy so that was nice.

Another friend has asked me to make a few individual owl hangers for her family for Christmas.  I've used a few different colours in this bunch.
Bodies are all done as you can see, now for some eyes and ribbons.  I'm also going to be attempting to add some initials on the backs of these which will be an interesting experiment.
