This week I feel totally, utterly bleurgh. I've got a sinus infection and I know I should probably go to the docs but I am trying to will it away without resorting to yucky antibiotics.
In my bleurghness I have only managed to de-clutter 1 small bag of baby cutlery and 4 T-shirts and I complained the whole time about my bleurghness whilst doing it.
To stop my grumbling and grumping I have spent my time doing this instead (sorry for terrible picture):
Owl on the right is based on the following tutorial (lots of good stuff on this site):
and the left hand owl is based on this very high quality youtube video:
Both are built ever-so-slightly differently with the left hand one being slightly more tricky around the eyes and beak but only requires one thread through the beak which gives more options in terms of beads. The one on the right requires two threads through the beak but on the whole is just that little bit easier for a novice like me.
Hope everyone else is having a less bleurgh week.

February's focus : Cabin Fever
Week Six : Quiet Calm
In stark contrast to February's theme I am aching for some home time. The super-hot dry weather has made for ideal fire conditions and we have spent the past few days on edge and leaving the house to hang around in safer areas.

This is just a quicky.
Do you know what a "no-reply" blogger is? Neither did I! But after the lovely Dasha of Patching Pixies kindly let me know that I was indeed a dreaded no-reply-er i thought I'd better investigate and fix it.
I could reportback my findings here but everything is explained so succinctly elsewhere I'll just send you straight to the source:

February's Focus: Cabin Fever
Week Five : Get Outside
In my part of the world we're experiencing another round of uncomfortably high temperatures which will see us either hiding inside with struggling air-conditioners or seeking out water : lakes, creeks, beaches and swimmimg pools.
