What a Hoot

Well it feels hotter than ever today and we are all shut away in the air conditioning as the best way to escape the heat. Miss M and Ted turned up today to take advantage of the cooler conditions.

I really felt like I had to do something today so I searched through my books and patterns and remembered this one that I got at the last Quilt Show here in Brisbane.

It only took me a couple of hours to make and though it was intended as a hand sewn project, I cheated, and sewed it together on the sewing machine.

Normally I hate reading instructions and usually fuddle along but this pattern had step by step photographic instructions on-line which made the whole process much easier to put together

Without further ado, here is my little OWL PURSE:
I will be putting this little guy into my gift box for the time being and I am going to look for some more of the hardware so I can make some more.  I think it is just so cute!

And it will hold quite a few pennies

Go here if you want to see some more of these designs

How about this photo that appeared on the news last night.  Taken off Western Australia where there is a cyclone off the coast.


That orange is a dustcloud blown from across the Pilbara.
