"Two Hoots"


Last month for our stitching challenge we decided to make a soft toy. We used Robyn's pattern which is called "Hoot." He worked out so well,the pattern was easy to follow.
Anita made hers in bright yellow. He now has a new home at the school library Anita works at. She tells me that the children just love him and have a great time playing with him.
I made my "Hoot"in blue, he enjoyed a little bit of sun then has decided to call my sewing room home. If you want the pattern for "Hoot" it is for sale in Robyn's etsy store. Please go and check it out. For this months challenge we can make either a tea cosy or pot holder. We can make it from any pattern we can felt it knit it whatever takes our fancy. It will be interesting to see the end result. I think Anita will be knitting hers!!! She is a very clever knitter and has been doing some jumpers etc for the Guardian Angel Knitting Program. This year all the knitted items will be given out to Australians in need. World Vision used to send them overseas but with rising costs this has changed. With Anita doing her knitting for charity this got me to thinking about "Random Acts of Kindness" Have you ever done this? Maybe everyone that reads my blog could do a "Random Act of Kindness." You could make a donation to your favourite charity,donate a blanket to the Saint Vinnie's Winter Blanket Appeal,donate blood or become a blood donor,visit someone you haven't seen for awhile,or just say hello to someone different today. Wouldn't the world be a better place.

As this is my 100th posting I will be having a little giveaway later on. The embroidery above will be in this. Aren't they cute. Check back later on, I have to finish it off first. Thank you to everyone who has commented visited emailed and encouraged me regarding my blogging,you all keep me inspired.
Happy sewing.

Happy 100th post - congratulations! Just this week I was able to donate a large box of teddy bears to children in need. The smiles on their faces were priceless.

The Hoots turned out great. I must get moving and make one. Good luck with the tea cosy or pot holder. My friends and I make quilts to donate to charities so they can raffle them off and make some money. Congrats on the 100th posting.
