I spent most of Friday (my 37th birthday) making this owl. I haven't made an owl in many years, but I got a special request for one and thought it might be interesting to make one again. And it was.
Looking at the pattern for this owl was like looking through an old diary from college. The handwriting was familiar and so were the thoughts, but my writing and my thinking has changed now in marked ways. Revisiting this pattern stirred in me those same awkward feelings of revisiting past expressions of self.

I love how much personality your owl has, but even more I love that you make stuffies for the full range of ages not just the sweet little kids.
He is sooo beautiful. Love your pretty owls, just looking at him makes e wa na write children’s stories… Or fantasy. 🙂
