The day before the Great Flood of '11, Boots and I went our separate ways, as in he went fishing and I went shopping with my aunt, cousin, and my Meme (whose not really my Meme, but might as well be.) Boots caught a few fish and I made a new friend named Joann.
......on the cheap like this! (too bad I don't sew)
($7.97, kinda blurry)
Joann says that owls are popular baby patterns......
Boots getting his pre-fishing haircut.

I so wanted to buy these, but then what would I do with them?
I'll just plant real ones instead.
I was in love!
More owls. I wondered what I could iron this on. Leg of my pants, perhaps?
Peacock themed stationary paper!!

We spent about fifteen minutes trying to convince my hardheaded genius cousin (who adamently refused!) to make this.
Because she could totally do it.
