Just when my post was beginning to be dreary again I received two lovely surprises in one day;
A marvelous mail art package from Melanie Furtado containing not one, but TWO owl prints, a handmade zine, a magnet (that sadly broke in transit, but a beauty nonetheless), a hand-made moth card (I also love drawing moths!) and a little envelope containing bits and bobs that reads ‘Make something’. It was a perfect little mail art package and I am looking forward to replying, even though it may not be until January now!
As well as a peachy little package from the very lovely 91 Magazine, which is made by Patchwork Harmony , a lovely blog and shop that I’ve been following for a while now, I especially love their beautiful interior styling, you must have a peek if you havent already.
I also received my greetings cards from the printers yesterday and I’m so happy with how they look, the card has a lovely matte feel and the image is perfect and crisp. They will be available to buy in my online shop soon and also at the markets I’ll be at in December.

I finally finished the knitted owl cushion that I have been working on for months, he is called Oswald Mowl. I am very proud as it took much perseverance to say the least but now I feel ready to tackle a pattern for a cardigan or jumper, preferably a fair isle number.
He’s sporting vintage floral wings and a gold leather beak

Today I came across this amazing wallpaper;
‘Owls of the British Isles’ by Abigail Edwards is a design featuring ten different owl’s, 5% of profits from sales of this paper go to The Barn Owl Centre and her wallpapers are printed at a traditional UK wallpaper printers in Lancashire, using non-toxic inks which is SUPER.
Her website is definitely worth a peruse, lots of beautiful interior styling to feast your eyes on, I particularly love these;
…and there are some adorable illustrations too;
Oooh I love cats and decanters!!

At Knitting club this week I decided to start the Owl cushion, however following a knitting pattern is not as easy as the grandma’s make it look. I am now on my fifth attempt, hopefully the perseverance will pay off in the form of Olive the owl, a partner for my friends lovingly created owl Olaf!
In the mean time I have developed a slight obsession for Owl things;
Night Owl cushion from Bouf.com
