There is such a stillness here. It is a perfect place to find inspiration. I have been working on some cutesie owls for next weekend's Handmade Harvest Craft Show and having so much fun. As I felt away with a grin on my face I take pauses to sip my tea and look out the window. There is such beauty everywhere, the trees reflected in the water, the grey branches, naked of it's leaves.
Handwork is allows you to slow down. It's like a meditation. The mind slows down as does the breath. I love it's effects on me.
These owls are fun to make. They are a work of labour and love. I love felting the eyes because once the eyes appear they come to life with a little personality.
Work in progress.
