More surprises in my mailbox. This time from my dear friend Sonya.
This shot of her owl is my macro attempt for the day, but with the clouds, it's a bit difficult to photograph up close.
That's better. You can imagine how my jaw dropped when I opened her package. This is the most adorable knit softie I have ever seen. It's gorgeous! And I love the colors she chose. She also made this blanket.
The colors are off a bit (that cloudy day thing), the greens are more a pea green (not yellow green) and the variegated yarn is the same she used for the owl. It's beautiful...just perfect. Both owl and blanket came sweetly wrapped furoshiki style in this adorable owl fabric.
As we've been out and about sporting matching blanket and owl I've had many inquiries about the owl pattern. I am happy to learn today that the owl is Sonya's own design! Go here for details on to to purchase your own. Sonya...thank you so much! You've made us all so happy with your thoughtful gift. Especially Julen.
