For what seemed like months, Daniel kept asking for an owl, and the answer was consistently no. He looked at all the rules and regulations, even spoke to a keeper who offered to mentor him while we were out, and the answer was still no. Almost every other sentence was, "Can I have an owl?" The answer was no, but then I saw this:
This was a design in one of the Cross Stitch Gold magazines I wanted to clear out, but now, unknown to Daniel, he can have four owls, although, I'm not sure he will be as delighted as I am. Fotunately, he has a great sense of humour, so he will see the funny side.
As I can only do this while he's out, I'm not expecting them to hatch quickly, but the first eye has appeared. He's away for a few days next week, so hopefully, good progress will then be made.
Daniel has now moved on to pigs, so guess what I'm looking for now!
In the meantime, I needed something that I could do in the odd few minutes that I had available, and to do while waiting for Daniel at various activities. While moving furniture and cleaning last week, I found a neglected project which is just perfect for those times.
It's just a crochet square that will just grow and grow until I run out of cotton. Once it's done, then I'll decide what it's for.
