My Owl Obsession Blanket


Seems like i have joined the owl obsession crowd for crocheting a blanket....I have seen this one all over the place, its like everyone is making you know i am making lots of these small for the pattern goes to Jacquie from Bunny are few that I have crochet so far, for myself and family..

Tooo cute I reckon.....anyways

Here is the some of the yarn and what I have crochet so far on the Owl Obsession blanket...pattern by Marken of the Hat & I..found on Ravelry under the name Owl Obsession..

The yarn from BigW called Sean Sheep Rockbank Port Wine (Soft and slow colour changes, gorgeous to crochet and knit, also felt)

The above is what I have crochet so far...All the bigger circles are done...Might work on the smaller circles for the squares next, they are easier...

I was thinking if the colour Spice Market would have been brighter...there was none in the BigW I went to (WaterGardens)

Hmmm..anyways I think that will do for today....if you would like to see the pic of the owl obsession from Marken of the Hat & I check out the pattern on Etsy....

Ok Bella (meaning beautiful in Italian)
ciao for now and enjoy your day

Update on Spring Fling Pillow


I have progressed well on this is my other post and info on the Spring Fling Pillow giveaway/challenge by Cathy's Hooker Club with The Crochet Crowd Club.

I have completed the back of the pillow which reminds of the grounds and greenery during spring.

I have also added embellishments to the front

And I have completed the flower petals

 There is another petal here but I forgot to take picture, it is blue

I have also placed and sewed in the whole flower onto the front of the pillow

I was thinking placing owl/s on the front to jazz up the pillow and make more happy times

Cool now to make more owls and embellishments for the front of the pillow, I have until 15th April to finish this challenge....

If you would like to join in this giveaway with The Crochet Crowd go here for details...and if you would like to see Mickey's video tutorials (tips and how to) for making the pillow for this challenge click here.

Ok ladies and gentlemen I am seeing you later.....oooh one more new owellete to share to cheer your day.

Have a  Fantastic Day and Happy Crochet

My New Owelette


Well there comes a time when you have to give in to cuteness.  This is one cute and adorable little crochet owl......

I had just completed the eyes in the above photo.  I love the look.

I was inspired by a lady who made this little owl for Claire (from BobWilson123) on facebook and she shared the link to the pattern called Easy Crochet Owl Tutorial by Jacquie from Bunny Mummy.

Very true to the title, the pattern is very easy to follow with many photos to illustrate.

As soon as I saw this little owl i had to give it a go, as I do not crochet soft toys....and I loved every minute..I started late last night and finished this morning.

I will have to make more in different colors as I cannot stop staring at this little cutey.

Here are more photos....

Completed without wings

 Completed with wings

Here is the basic construction...

Front, back and eyes



Sewing together and being stuffed

Little one wants to fly..LOL

Tada....I think I prefer little owl without wings, so cute, but cute and gorgeous with wings too...

I love his/hrs little ear tufts....sooo adorable....

I will definitely be making more in different colors...i have ideas for a blanket with these little fellows...hmmm.

I cannot stop staring..anyways i think everyone should at least have one in their family...hoot over to Jacquie's blog and have a go, these are great for stash busting..and if you wish to share yours with me, that would be to see the color combos we all create.

ok Bella's see ya later for another update on the Spring Fling Pillow.....
