In flies the Parliament...

...of owls.
The wonderful members of NOTYQ make a sterling effort in making and donating community quilts. Every second year as part of our Quilt Exhibition people make and donate items to the stall at the show that raises money to buy the backing and batting for these quilts.
Fabulous Chris made up sets of these wonderful owl embroideries with all money going to funding for community quilts.  I am so in love with these Strigiformes. Ah yes that is the scientific name for this order of amazing creatures.


I often visit the Graphics Fairy for enchanting vintage images and that's the first place I went when looking for an owl image you can download and use for free. Here's the LINK.
Wonder why he is digging?

  2. I'd never heard that word, strigiformes.....thank you! I learned something which I like to learn at least one new thing each day. I get the Graphics Fairy in my inbox each day....love her graphics. I love the owl one. Do you think he/she is digging that stump out for grubs and insects for dinner? I love the colors. The owl drawings are gorgeous....someone is very talented!
