I finally finished something!

Wow, this working-full-time-crap is seriously disrupting my crafting. Pah. Maybe I'll have time to finish the four half-finished items I have lying about next week, when I have the morning shift, there's absolutely no time to do anything during the evening shift week. Ok, that's enough complaining for now, sorry 'bout that. It's just that I have not yet found the positive things about being back at work.

Anyway, this little owl top is what I have to show you this time.
I absolutely love this owl-fabric too. It's Night Owls by Michael Miller, from fabricworm. It's not as bright and cheerful as the other owl-fabric I have, but I really love this too. Have I happened to mention that I love owls? :) The top is a smaller version of the tunic I made my bigger girl. I wanted to try to make it in a smaller size, and I think it turned out just fine. I tried to get a pic of the fastening in the back, but that's not happening right now, the tiny one quit cooperating after I got the first photos taken. :) And now we have to start getting ready for the 7yo's next soccer tournament, I'll tell you later if they win any of their games today. :)


  1. Before I was about 26, I did not understand why you would ever pinch a kid's cheeks. Now, for some reason, I kind of get it and I kind of want to pinch these ones! She just looks cuddly and - as my sister says about her kids - squeazable.

    Anyways, I also love the owls! BTW, what did you go back to work to do?

  2. I love owls too! That fabric is so pretty!!! Maybe if you think about the lovely knitting you will do this winter.. Does that help cheer you up? :)

  3. The fabric is beautiful, and I agree with Theresa - that is one squeezable kid!

  4. Theresa - the babe does have very pinchable cheeks. :) And I went back to work as a check-out girl at a store. It's so not what I want to be doing, but I've been told it's better than nothing. After a week, I'm not so sure I agree with that statement.

    Alexandra - I think I might have to get more of this fabric too. :) And unfortunately it doesn't help to think of the lovely knitting I'll do this Winter, as I probably won't have much time for any knitting..

    Dorothy - I know I love squeezing that kid. :)

  5. Love owls, absolutely love Michael Miller fabrics! As usual the model is just too cute! I have been a bad blog friend in keeping up, but I am back! Just in case you missed me, LOL!

  6. Michele - I love Michael Miller fabrics too! Too bad they're pretty hard to come by around here. Then again, I get them much cheaper on Etsy, than if I were to buy them here. Which is really stupid. Oh, and I have missed you. :)
