First I saw this owl in an ad in Selvedge, then several months later on the cover of Create and Decorate and lately in the flyer for Crate and Barrel. These were cotton made and the patterns of the materials did add to the merriment ! I used special wool I was given by Michele, a piece of wool from a gift tie up made the irises and I stuffed it with wool roving I got from a person in Hamilton. The thread I used is tapestry yarn hand dyed by Maggie McLea. Surprisingly it took the better part of 2 hours to make !
