I've Got Hooters!

This is a quilt I made for a friend's birthday - she loves and collects owly things.  I really had fun sifting through my scraps and fabrics for interesting textures and colors to make the owls.  I've entered this in the 'Pets on Quilts Show' at SewCalGal's blog.  Please visit her blog to see all the wonderful entries and vote there.  Click here to view the Show and see all the pets and quilts!



Today I am grateful for humor.  Life would be pretty miserable if we didnt have the capacity to laugh with or at ourselves and others (not in a mean way though).  Humor makes the worst of circumstances bearable sometimes.  It helps us heal our hurts and forgive ourselves and others for slights, both real and imagined.   There's truth to the old adage "Laugh and the world laughs with you... cry and you cry alone."
