Hints and Hoots

Here's a hint at tomorrow's giveaway. Nuf said.We've had some owl sightings around here lately. I saw 2 fly over my car while I waited for Pete to come out of a Boy Scout meeting a couple of weeks ago. And last night, we heard the hooting. I think I've linked the sighting and the hooting to the Great Horned Owl. I'd love to get a better look at them.
These little cuties will do in a pinch. They are my versions from the Petit Hibou tutorial that is in French and translated into German. If you Google "petit hibou Mady" they will offer you an English translation. I just read the translation for the first time and realized that the designer intended for the owl to be a gift for your boyfriend, not a pincushion. When you get to the website, click on the photo of the owls and you'll have the chance to download the pattern. It wasn't obvious at first how to do it, so I just clicked around.

Ciao,
Tina
