The Makings

Might I say to begin with....Buuuuurrrrrrr! It's freezing here in central Texas.....very unusual weather for us but apropos for the cold snap that always happens around Easter.

As most of you know, I am really into making mug rugs. So the other day I was thinking of one I really wanted to make using an owl. Of course, I'd need the appropriate fabrics so off to the old stash I went. Boy was it a thrill to look through all those scraps for just the right colors. I won't show you the mess I made because it was quite shameful but loads of fun.
First I made this little owl. I know, I should have placed a quarter next to him so that you could really appreciate how small he is. Sorry...hindsight and all.

Next came the leafless tree with shapely branches to add character.

Now to the background fabric. I was lucky to fine this dusky blue piece....love it but had to use it. I added a light blue moon to the mix which appears in the background.

Finally, I added the owl. Now all I have to do is quilt it and bind it. So you'll be seeing the mug rug in a future Thursday post with my "A is for Aardvark" BOW.

Make sure you pop over to Judy's to see what other are doing on this wonderful Design Wall Monday!

Your owl in his storm-tossed tree is so appealing!

Jill said...

This is adorable!!! Since it's a mug rug, I can't imagine how tiny your cute owl is!

I love it! Very well done. that would make a very cute center block for a Halloween wall hanging. I guess it would have to be enlarged 30 times though. I really, really like it!

If you made this as a MUG Rug, I can imagine how small the Owl is. Good, Fun little Project for DWM. Are you in a Mug Rug Swap?

Fantastic design! I don't think I could be a mug on that mug rug. It's going to be too beautiful.

I think you should share this pattern so if I don't win it I can make it. You know how I love owls.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
