lovely ladies and a give-away

Update: I am extending the giveaway until Monday and I have added a new name to the list, so please, still leave you comments- I am really hoping for at least 10 people for the drawing!

I finally got a chance to stitch together my second owl today!

The only real change I made is the wings. I thought the first wings were a bit awkward, but seeing them both together I kinda appreciate the awkwardness of them.
I still don't have a name for her yet- here are some of my idea's:

Penelope
Lucy
Harriet
Olive Owl (I was thinking maybe she needed a short chubby friend and they could be Olive and Ollie Owl?)

What's your favorite? Or maybe you have another suggestion? Let's have some fun with this- leave a comment with your vote or name suggestion and I will enter you in a drawing to win one of my felt owl ornaments (here are some I've made already, but there will be more). You've got until Friday morning at 7am to comment, I will announce the winner by noon on Friday, November 18th.

Cute! I love the name Olivia the Owl. Or maybe Opal.

How fun that you are doing a giveaway with these!

i like the plain fabric face and the small wings of the original. i think the plain face lets the cute little eyes speak more. as for names... i've been thinking since yesterday. are you going to make a chubby boy owl counterpart, or another girl?

Courtney said...

i'm thinking of the names you have, they should be gal pals... harriet and penelope.

Jennifer said...

How did I miss this? Penelope is my favorite. And Harriet... Hatty for short. : )

cute, cute, cute!

Penelope is cute and how about Elliot for the other one and they can be a boy/girl owl combo

I do like to one with chunkier wings! Don't get upset about the lack of comments! I am a faithful reader but have never commented and I am sure there are many others! I am a homeschooling mama of three little girls in N.C. I appreciate you sharing your mom journey, your crafting and your posts about homeschooling! Have a very blessed day!

I like the speckled face and brightly colored feet of the 2nd owl. For a name, for some reason Virginia popped into my head!

I like all of those names! Olive is so cute. Found you via twitter.

These little owls are so stinkin' cute. I like the wings on the one with the patterned fabric head, but like the solid colored fabric head best. But I think they are both totally loveable and amazing the way they are.
I love owls!

I'm sorry I missed the drawing! I have been out of the blog world for a while with travel, but am home now! I love your owls...
