Here is my Finished Object for this week. I love her...
here. I thoroughly enjoyed making her but I did make a lot of alterations to the original 70s pattern I found online. It appeared to made for a very tall, very thin tea pot. I think the eyes are the same but that's about it.
Sadly she is not universally loved in our house. B says she has no wings (even though I added the scalloped edging to combat this particular issue) and Mr HT has been less than enamoured for some reason. I care not. I think she's lovely. The only real trouble with her was choosing the colours. She started off burnt orange (which was nice) but somehow she wanted to be more owly so out came the silvery grey. There are more details about her on my Ravelry Project page if you would like to know the nitty gritty. She is living on a shelf in my kitchen and I have arranged her so that she peers slightly around the corner. This amuses me, for some reason nobody else has noticed. Sigh. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.
I am very excited that today is the day our little craft group meets, it is one of my favourite ways to spend a morning. We spend lots of time putting the world to rights in that way that only mutually supportive females can. They are all fab and knowing them is making settling into Hilly Town so much easier.
This weekend is considerably less busy looking than the last few so I am looking forward to visiting lots of the FOs on Tami's website. Perhaps I will see some of you there.
