Whooo Are You??

From my craft room today,  I kept hearing some tiny little "whoo whoo whoo" 's.  Several times, I peeked my head in to check, but could't seem to see anything that could possibly be causing that noise.  Finally, as I sat patiently waiting for the little "whoo" to come again, from out behind a small silver tree popped a little guy with great big eyes.  He looked directly at me and said, "Tell me who are you?"  I had the same question for him and his brother who peeked out as well.  Turns out, the two of them are little Christmas Owls who were perched inside those silver tree's when they were brought inside.  They are darn cute, wouldn't you say?

I've wanted to try my hand at needle-felting for awhile, so when I saw these sweet little guys in a needle-felting kit in an etsy shop called fancytiger, I swooped them right up.  It's amazing that loose roving can be rolled into a ball an pricked with a big pin for a few minutes to turn out some darling little owls, (or whatever you want to turn out).  The needle didn't have the same effect on my fingers.  Turns out fingers don't felt...

Whoo-whoo are you??

Those are really cute! I'd love to try needle felting too, but I already have too many irons in the fire. The craft studio is starting to bulge at the sides!! Maybe, just maybe I'll try it this summer ...

Cute little guys! Bet they have much more to talk about! 'Whoo' am I? A grandma who has had such fun having a different grandchild each day of Thanksgiving break - overnight and time to spend time together, having fun and talking and hugging a lot. That's just part of 'whoo' I am - the fun part right now.
