Finished Undead Friday.

No time to participate in the blogging world the way I'd like to, still, but it feels wrong on FO Friday to not at least briefly introduce you all to the Season's First Owl---Buttons the Deranged, a hopefully-autumn-weather-summoning zombie owl.  Let's pretend that his button eyes were not at all influenced by the fact that I'd left my safety eyes at residence no. 2 while I was crafting him at residence no. 1, but instead by a completely purposeful aesthetic decision to make him look even nuttier.

I even made him a little brain gnaw on in case he gets hungry before he reaches his new home, whenever and wherever that is.  (Mr. Buttons is available for sale or swap, if his wonky eyes are looking at you with a particularly non-resistible beseechingness...)

Next up, a Hedwig-inspired owl, I think...worked in some nice Lion Brand Homespun so the body shouldn't take two shakes of a lamb's tail.  (My mom used to use that expression all the time when I was a kid, I hadn't thought of it in ages.  Huh.)

  1. AWESOME! He's so cool, in a terrifying sort of way, and the gnawing braaaaaaiiiin (sorry, had to) is a perfect touch. Well done! Oh, and just FYI, Wendell did an outstanding job at the wedding (pics coming soon!), so thanks again! :)

  7. You make the best creatures--I love his eyes and his fluffy fluffy wings. My Grandma says two shakes of a lambs tail, and another favourite of hers is "fine as frogs hair."

  10. Love Buttons and his little snack! It is perfectly trendy to eat brains right now so I would say he is more of a gourmand than a deranged owl, despite his scary eyes :)
    I hope that your summer has been going well. I have been sporadic on the blogging front lately, but hope to get back on track soon. Looking forward to seeing more owly creations from you!

  18. Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a
    large amount of work? I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I'd like
    to start a blog so I can share my personal
    experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for
    new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
