Craft Schmaft


So, I didn't take much convincing to not do the vacuuming! Meet Ralph Blue the baby sock owl!

I bought the "Toot sock owl pattern" from Claire of Craft Schmaft yesterday at the show. I hadn't ever been across her blog before, but I spent a lot of time there when I got home last night. So much fun over there. The little round owls captured my heart and I had to have the pattern so I could fill my life with them. He is, actually my first owl ever. A bit slow on the whole owl uptake over here.

I love him and been carrying him around the house with me all day (a little strange, yes). He is a very satisfying little hand sewing project and fits in the palm of my hand all soft and plump-like.

I will never look at a pair of socks in the same way again.

Oh he's cute!! I have been eyeing off my kids socks while putting them away this morning... some may mysteriously disappear and new baby owls appear in their place.
