First, here is the latest Hoot. His name is "Everywhere A Hoot" Hoot.
It's because his front is made from gorgeous Alexander Henry fabric (in green tea colourway) and there are marvellous little owls printed all over it. Isn't it adorable?
And his name is slightly lateral, it comes from the nursery rhyme "Old McDonald Had A Farm" .... and yes, you've got the obvious link now, it's Here a Hoot, There a Hoot, Everywhere a Hoot ...Hoot. Perfect!
And another bit of crafty news is that this blog is now featured on the Living Creatively blogroll - they of the fantastic Stitches And Craft show we all know and love - I am immensely proud of this! Have a look and check me out; I'm on the Sewing page of the blogroll. I am just about hugging myself with excitement. I hope I get to meet lots of new visitors! If you are new to this blog and you came to it via the Living Creatively page, I am very VERY happy to meet you. I hope you enjoy it here.
Lastly, I am about to embark on a new line of Hoots ... I remember saying a while ago that I felt there was a need for some slightly quirky toys to be added to my crafting efforts, in recognition of my appreciation for the arch side of life. And I think I've got a plan now, so watch this space for more news .....
