Welcome to our blog.

….. Making pretty things
….. Simple living
….. Growing a family

Three children (17, 15, 13)*** Two parents *** one dog *** Country loving *** Cottage dwelling in the South-West of the UK. That’s us!

We’ve been blogging since January 2010, about everyday happenings that bring us joy.

Just a thought….

“A moment spent in wonder is worth a lifetime spent in awe.”

A Needlefelted Barn Owl. Not a nametape

“Hmm. No. But I have made an owl. Look. I needlefelted it”

“But I have PE today.”

“Hmm. I meant too, but the owl made me. OK. Not true, but I just had to make it”

Please tell me that I’m not alone? Some creative ideas pop into my head and I have to a make them. There and then. No turning my back once the idea is there. This time it was a barn owl. What if I made a flying barn owl? Could I make the wings arch without them flopping? How could I do that?

But my owl did!

And the wings hold the shape perfectly.

So I’m happy.

Just need to find the best way to photograph needlefelt.
