Twit Twoooo

My Mum has loved owls for as long as I can remember.  When I was a little'un I remember her having a ceramic owl on the kitchen wall, right next to the sink, that held string and scissors (which were the owl's spectacles) - I can picture it in my mind now - she treasured that owl and every owl ornament that she has received since then.

As a little thank you for being ultra special (as all mums are of course), I recently made and gave to her a little owl brooch as she likes to collect my felt brooches!  I was so happy with it that I decided to make one for Ellie's Treasures too - slightly different of course, as I endeavour to make every item unique in some way.  I like all the Autumn colours in this, perfect for accessorizing hats, scarves, coats and also bags.

Hi Dawny, I so wish they were all mine, and yes, I too love the "hear no evil" etc. one. Apart from the owl brooch, they are all from other talented Folksy folk. Elaine x
