2 Dark Owls

I love playing with these black textured woolens. The body has that diamond pattern that seems to be embossed into it? The ears are a black wool corduroy- how amazing it that!

The wings are cut from a very dark gray ribbed wool sweater.

Please excuse that hair on the wing- I never see something like that until it is too late (dark) to fix it!

This owl has all the dark sweater bits.

good-bye Sage!

Yesterday was the last day that Sage, my intern, worked with me. Since June, we got loads of work done, went on field trips, I made her take home bags full of supplies that I didn’t want, we listened to podcasts and discussed, and generally yakkity-yakked the summer away. Have a great senior year Sage!

And about the owls. Could I have made a MORE ambiguous survey? Obviously I should have lined them up in the number order for the photo. Also, I should have mentioned which owls were #1 and #2. I mean I did on Flickr but not on my blog. Thank you husband Ben for pointing out that little problem. Anyway, I will be sending one off today (not tellin’) and will let you know when there is more info about the show. I appreciate all your input!
