And the winner is...

Jennifer won the First Ever Giveaway! Jennifer and Steve blog over at the Common Milkweed. They write about hiking, cooking, crafting and living the simple life. They are always cooking up yummy looking the towel will be a handy addition to their kitchen.

I embroidered my fingers to the bone (not really), but I got inspired by a friend's felt ornaments and switched crafty projects and started making my own designs. You can find DIY kits at Kendra's etsy shop to make these Three Wise Owls:

She ships the cut out felt and all the supplies to put them together with instructions. They were easy to make and oh so cute!

Felt was fun to work with so I moved on to some more ornaments. I have been busy make birds of the Northwest. Can you tell what they are?

This morning I woke to icy temperatures in the 20's. All the hummingbird feeders were frozen so I hauled out the holiday lights and hooked them to two of the three feeders to keep them thawed. The large light bulbs offer just enough heat to keep the liquid from freezing. Pour little hummers!

Thanks for entering the giveaway. It was fun and I might just do that again!
