...it made me laugh and I was just about to hit the 'pin it' button, when it struck me......yeah, I should stop pinning and start making! Duh! I have so many crafts, recipes, and cross stitching things pinned but I very rarely get round to actually making anything that I have pinned.
From now on, I'm limiting my time on Pinterest and have decided that I can only pin things after I have made something....anything!
So here's what I made.....
This was from the Homemaker magazine issue 8 that I bought when I was in the UK (yeah, it's been sitting there all this time...I do feel guilty, honestly!)
Anyhoo, or should that be twit-twoo? I filled the owl with sand so that I could use him (or maybe her?!!) as a doorstop. I was quite pleased with it....but one of the cats wasn't as happy about our new addition as I was, as you can see if you look at the owls ear in the left hand corner of the picture. My usually not-so-brave kitty suddenly became this fierce warrior cat and pounced on the owl and ripped it's ear. Of course, as the poor owl fell backward, the cat decided to return to her normal fraidy-cat temperament and ran and hid under the bed! A little first aid should have this owl back to being functional again and not leaking sand everywhere!
So I can now, quite categorically, say that I stopped pinning and made something.
Until next time...happy stitching!
