I had a miscellaneous piece of wet felting that I didn't know what to do with so it just sat waiting patiently. I also had a few needle felted owls that needed a place to call home. I embroidered a few blue beetles and wrapped thread around a few beads.
Needle felted a couple of caterpillars and wrapped more beads
and added a butterfly on a tree
and voila, my owls are happy with their whimsical home :)
We spotted this Sharp-shinned Hawk in the back yard no doubt looking for a tasty sparrow or chickadee. It was gorgeous to see but it eventually flew away empty clawed.
