Owl be yours forever

Yesterday, I sang 2 concerts for Remembrance Day. It was really a great concert, but can I tell you... my feet are sore!! :}

Anyhow, I managed to sew up a little owl from More Softies Only a Mother Could Love. Yep, I'm stuck on that book for awhile.

I altered it a bit. Added some ears. Also want to add my signature heart on the softie. I'm thinking of adding wings?? What do you think?
Here he is with the Santa gnome . Just 2 friends hanging out.

My husband always has some little food experiment on the go. This time, it's olives. He made a batch a few months ago and liked them so much, that he bought a 10 pound box on Friday! Guess everyone's gettin' olives for Christmas. You have to change the water every day for about 3 weeks. then he added some salt to brine them. This time, he's also going to try some other things like spiced olives and some in vinegar.

Purdy ain't it?

I'm not a fan of olives, but when I saw the picture i thought they were pistachio nuts. Those are better than olives... :D I love the little owl... he matches my bag! :D
