Introducing the Mohawk Owl…

This is a rare species indeed. His little legs are red and he has white fishnets over them, a red crest (or Mohican hairdo), and green boots so you can’t spot him in the trees… or so he thinks!

It’s all nonsense really! Just my take on this week’s challenge by The Three Muses (Ann), LEGS!

Mohawk Owl...

I am making small quilting blocks in a swap and one of the ladies has chosen “owls” as her theme, so I went a bit nuts on them last night… surprised? No, I didn’t think you would be, but the end result was 2 more blocks completed and this little postcard-sized fella for me! Isn’t he adorable, with his padded tummy and big button eyes, never mind the hair, legs and boots?

I have managed to catch the grottiest cold and am coughing like an old tractor at the moment, feeling quite sorry for myself… and thank goodness for blogs and art to take my mind off my poor throat!

  5. Ah Rosie! You have given me something to smile about. I just love your owl. He is GORGEOUS. Is he going to be part of a greater quilt? What a work of art that would be.

    Absolutely adorable.

  16. First of all, I’m with you. I HATE the dinky comment window. I usually go to the list of participants and click on the name so I can see the entire entry. Funny how some windows come up larger than others. ANYWAY, that aside, your little Owl Fowl is absotively adorable! I can see why you kept him for yourself!
