I think this owl might actually have a bit of a smile!
I'm not sure how, it must be something to do with his eyes! But it does answer my question - is it possible to make a happy owl? Not that that was the intention, I just had the design in my head and off to the sewing machine I went! I've also managed a couple of Christmas cards this week...
But most of my time has been spent teaching, and practising the Christmas play. I take classes in school whilst the teacher has her planning and preparation time. On Monday I was a wise man in the play, Tuesday a shepherd and by Wednesday I'd been 'demoted' to a cow lol!
I have the privilege of working in two schools and they both put on stunning Christmas performances. I helped with the dress rehearsal on Thursday in one and was a guest at the second on Friday. The schools, and therefore the performances, are both very different, but the creative talents of the staff, and the hard work of the pupils in both produced amazing results.
