Description

I made this little mug rug for my mom who loved the red velvet I bought recently.  This was supposed to be for her living room but now it's headed to the rehab facility. She spent yesterday being admitted to the hospital for a fractured spine and she'll be in rehab for several weeks so this will go there with her to perhaps cheer her up:)
 
Fabrics are Liberty Lifestyle -(Liberty is my favorite fabric on the planet), a snippet of Michael Miller ; the owls were from a Christmas fat quarter from JoAnn's and the Red velvet as well. I just challenged myself to use only what was in the scrap pile and see what it turned out to be- fun!  The velvet is thick and so doing the binding in it gave it a sort of teddy bear feeling- she'll love that as she adores stuffed animals.
 
Oh and yes, I do seem to have a knack for decapitating birds- must be the cat owner in me- but this time Mr. Owl is mostly (sic) all there;)))))

ohh no how did she manage to fracture it?

well maybe you should get yourself a pet bird to stop your strange affliction of cutting their heads off.

I am so sorry about your mother...and hope she has a speedy recovery! This will cheer her along I am sure...

These poor birds...;-)

Strandkorbtraum She has vertigo and she took a tumble in the kitchen- it was a compound fracture apparently- got worse over the course of a few days to where she couldn't get out of bed yesterday.

We've had birds- but I think the new rescue kitty would go stark raving insane if she actually had a real chance of getting that close to one and we'd have feathers everywhere in a matter of minutes!

True Thanks- hope she likes it- her spirits seem pretty good all things considered.

Yup- birds don't stand a chance with me!!!
