Itty-Bitty Owl

I made this little owl early in April. I used a pattern from an old McCall's book of softie patterns. I was planning to make more of these in different colors/fabric but got side-tracked as usual.
I fiddled around today with a jelly roll of Hello Betty by Moda with intentions of starting a new quilt but then again I must wait for my sewing machine. I have only hand-stitched one quilt in my life--an Ohio Star pattern and that was a while ago.

Nested Robin's Egg Blue

One of my very favorite colors, and such a smooth well made nest. Don't you just love those eggs?
I have been busy working on my new nest and enjoying a lovely spring surrounded by redbud and dogwood trees. I just got some fabric for our kitchen window---it is yet to be sewing machine is being repaired. The presser foot broke in the midst of sewing a calico blouse for Em.
