The Third Day of Christmas
(Technically the Twelfth. But I’m not good with numbers.)
This little fellow is from Lisa Jordan’s pattern “Holiday Hoot” in Fa la la la Felt: 45 Handmade Holiday Decorations.
God, I love owls. Hearing a real owl at night is magical. I’ve so rarely spotted one in the wild — maybe only once on a birding excursion with the Nature Discovery team. (And if you’re in the Lansing, Michigan area and haven’t taken one of their classes or gone on one of their excursions, you really should. These are knowledgeable, dedicated, wonderful people. Wild animals seem to show up on their cue. Seriously.)
I also love owls in any other form. So an owl ornament? How could I not make it? He’s just so darn cute!
