Start on Owl


I laid down The Caretaker for a couple of months. I need to get some pieces done for Love Quilts (all are animals). This one is for an Emergency Quilt. The boy will be 14 in April and has bone cancer. He had a couple of surgeries this past week and isn't doing very well. His quilt is Masculine Birds with a Scripture verse. He mostly wanted Eagles and Hawks, unfortunately I didn't have them but did find this Owl that was accepted for the quilt. I just need to find a scripture verse. The one I want to use I'm not sure goes with the owl.

Today is a beautiful day outside. It's so pretty to look out at all the snow, and it's not that cold, (upper 20's low 30's today). It snowed some earlier. We have well over a foot on the ground so a little snow is annoying even. Sunday a major storm is to come in. Figures so we'll see if there is church or not. We had it last Sunday.

The other day I took my parents dog for a walk, poor little girl, the snow was so far over her head we could only go where it was shoveled or a well worn path. She looks like a princes prancing through that snow. It's so cute.

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

That looks like it's going to turn into a very handsome owl. Maybe a verse to do with wisdom?
