An Invasion of U.F.O.s...

We've had an invasion of U.F.O.s. You heard me right. We've been inundated by a flock of Unbelievable Flying Owls. The last few days I've been working on six more "Give a Hoot" pillows for our adorable grandchildren who just happen to be featured below.

Last week I doodled an owl while talking on the phone and several hours later my "Give a Hoot" doodle was reborn in fabric in the form of a pillow. Since then six more owls have joined the flock -- one for each of our grandkiddos above. These owls will be flying to their new homes later this week.

I've already introduced you to Gladys.

Now I'd like you to meet Gus,

Hank,

Mandy,

Flo,

Sid,

and Broderick.

I can just imagine the sleepy heads of our little ones resting on the soft minky fabric on the backs of these little pillows. This pillow and a book in the hand or a DVD on the TV will be the perfect accompaniment for a mid-day rest. Go here to find out how to draw up your own pattern to make these "Give a Hoot" pillows!

They're super cute! You're going to have to make another one soon... haha just kidding. But really, I love the colors!

Jill!! ;)

Wow. I am speechless. They are adorable and sweet and amazing! I don't have the words for how much I love these. The kids will be thrilled. They are so lucky to have you as their grandma. Wow.

I think they will be perfect traveling pillows too, that notch between the ears will make it so that it can slip behind their heads on a long car ride.

OH what beautiful, beautiful grandchildren!! ALMOST as beautiful as mine! :):)
Seriously, they are just adorable!!
I think this is my first visit to your blog...and I love it.
I say "I think" because I have forgotten from time to time...that I visited a blog and then been so cowardly as to blame it on my age!~ :)

Cute pillows...:)
