For Phoebe...


It's finished, the first of many. I am making all of my nieces one of these, a little cushion with a pocket and a mini owl softie. The fleece fabric is so warm and snuggly for little ones.


We are off to the Lake District tomorrow to visit my husbands family for the weekend, but also because on Thursday, it will be our 10th wedding anniversary, and we were lucky enough to get married in the church in the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere.


Then, next week is the start of the 2 week half term holiday. I have promised Lucy that while Luke is at nursery on Wednesday, we will have a girls dressing up day. She wants to wear her princess dress and she's asked me to wear.....my 'marrying' dress as she calls it, I'm going to feel like a right banana if anyone comes to the door!!

I would really like to see the postman's face when you open the door in a wedding dress! How funny!
The cushion is very very cute, I'm sure any little girl would love to get one for christmas (and probably big girls too!)

Have a lovely time in the Lakes, and Happy Anniversay - we're 10 yrs next year, goes quickly doesn't it?!

Happy Aniversary, have a wonderful time away.

Love the cushions, they look so snuggly and cosey. The creamy/ yellow colour is so pretty and girly.

What a beautiful gift. This is really stunning and not just because my favorite color is yellow.

Love that I found this site. I'll be back to see what else you're working on.

Ooh, some nastly spam slipped through up there, didn't it?

Anyway, a very cute owl and pillow gift, your niece is bound to love it :)

And a very Happy Anniversary and half-term to you .... I'm so envious that you can still fit into your wedding dress after ten years!

Oh how I love those cute little owls! I collect owls of all sorts and shapes but don't have any quite like these little guys. And that cosy cushion is just gorgeous. Do you ever sell any of your work? If not, I think you should certainly think about doing so. I love your blog and am new to blogging myself so it is great to see all that you are doing.

My 11th will be on Friday.
