Monday monday - woohoo


owl cushion cover, originally uploaded by -syko-.

It is a natural law that Mondays are like Mondays. Not my favourite day at all. The shop I made ten ABC-quilts for is not going to open it's doors after all, due to sad and understandable reasons, but it was no good news to start the new week with. I will list the quilts in my shop instead during the week.

When I showed you the house cushion a few days ago I promised something more natural for Spring too. I thought I would not join the owl trend, (there is 5896 owl items on etsy at the moment...), but then I got this piece of Japanese fabric that had to be used. Woohoo, says my owl, I bet he likes Mondays more than I do :)

Good Monday news is that the Spring issue of the online magazine small is out. They take magnificent pictures, support indie artists and it is free to subscribe!

I hope YOU are having a good week start! See you soon!

He looks lovely! I know what you mean about owl overload, but I think this cushion is so beautiful, that he'll outshine the other 5000 or so owls!

There may be a lot of owls out there, but the world would be poorer without your fabulous contribution!

Sorry to hear about the non-opening of the shop. :(

Sorry to hear about the shop, but you are obviously in a good mood and having a lot of fun making the cushions! The Owl is great!

Owls do seem to be the "in" thing right now. Your pillow cover is lovely.
I'm sorry to hear about the quilts, but I'm sure there are many people who will gladly take them off your hands.

Sorry to hear about your quilts but I'm sure they'll fly off the shelves at Etsy!

I love your owl cushion - great fabrics and very cute owl :)

I love your owl! They certainly seem to be de rigeur at the moment!! But I think your owl could out hoot all the others!!

Katy said...

Sorry to hear about the shop for the quilts. That's a shame, but I'm sure they won't be stood in your shop for long.

That owl cushion is most definitely a hoot above the other owls on etsy!

Yikes... you did all that work and the shop isn't going to open. How sad. Something good will come from all of this.

The owl pillow is adorable... love the Japanese fabric.

I was inspired by your house pillow and made a window... come see.
