Hoo ARE you?

 I made this owl pincushion for a door prize at church.  I thought the little guy turned out great and he felt right at home in my sewing room.  He liked hanging out with the stinkbugs and spider webs.  (Picture Hunt:  Find the stinkbug.)  My favorite detail was the little knobby knees that were made from tying a knot in his legs. 

Did you READ what I said?  I said that the owl had knobby knees on his legs!!  I mean it was a cute detail and I didn't notice for a long time...but...owls don't HAVE long legs!

I was so confused.  Why did they put flamingo legs on an owl?  Is a cute detail worth making a mixed up bird?  Should I still give it away even if it's weird?

In the end, I didn't really give a hoot.  He can still be used as a pincushion and he still looks cute on a shelf.

I think he's adorable! I love the different designs on clothes and material with owls on them. Don't know why-it's just cute.
