I don't know what it is about owls lately. I know I told you that my next swap will be to make a bookmark with a owl on it. I'm using some crossstitch and felt, maybe some ribbon. Last week ,I actually got to see a owl sitting in the tree next to the river. At first I thought it was a large hawk. We have several of those around, but he turned around and I got to his his great owly face. He looked a bit like the picture above. I wish I was a bit closer so I could take in all his features. Ever since the bird swap I'm seeing so many bird things. Funny how different things make you more aware of things you wouldn't notice before.
