Hey ya'll, it's starting to feel like fall!! Ok, so I'm a bit stir crazy these days, but I just had to show you my cute little 'Hootie' owl ~ isn't he cute?? No, I did not intend to make him cross-eyed, it just so happened that the wool had a little 'give' in it and as I stitched around the white part, it decided to 'move' just a bit. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it, ha!
If you want to see a whole family of them, just hop on over to my good friend Wendy's blog(the Quiet Room) where she shares a mama, papa and baby owl (that she just made recently from the same pattern). I told her they were my owl's English cousins from across the ocean. :))
'Angels in the Fire' is one of the most exciting non-fiction books I've ever read in my entire life!! It is a fascinating TRUE life story about a couple who had only been married a few yrs. when they were involved in a horrendous car crash involving a drunk driver. Their car caught on fire, and just when everyone thought that his wife would not be able to be freed before burning to death, several people witnessed an 'angel' dashing to their rescue. Their story of survival and physical progress after the crash is absolutely phenomenal! I read the whole book in just one evening as I could not put it down. It's a story filled w/faith, hope and trust and seeking wholeness and a new way of life after the crash. Their lives were literally turned completely around that night, but God sent his angels to rescue or reassure them many times at various points throughout their lives. It is truly an amazing story that you won't soon forget!! I highly recommend this book!!
Happy Fall, Ya'll
