I have a tin of pieces marked for four inch, three inch, two inch, and then one inch squares (my largest box at the back) and one inch strips cut into two, three, four, and five inch pieces. I have no plans as yet for using them. The rainbow quilt relieved the crowd in my one-inch box somewhat but what I added was only a small amount.
I have severe phone-phobia and tend to leave the phone at home more than I take it with me. I hate to have it ringing at inconvenient times, interrupting what I am doing, but there are times I really need to call home with a change of plans.
This owl will take care of the phone and I can hang it on the outside of my bag so I don't have to search everywhere for it.
I really had no idea what I was doing and there was probably an easier way, but it didn't take long and it works.
I had been to a show of vendors and seen several cute phone holders ... a bear and a dog. Well, why not try an owl ... my go to helper?
If I put the phone in bottom up, I can just plug in the charger without even removing it from the bag so am less likely to leave home without it.
I put a snap under the beak and the cord can be put over the strap and the owl pouch slipped through ... no fancy attachments, just stuff from my sewing box.
This is my front door behind the opened gate and where the pineapple lily bloomed the last month, the spider lilies have begun to welcome the coming fall.
"Higan-bana" supposedly welcome the autumnal equinox.
Since that is coming soon,they are pretty well in time.
I have some planted on both the east and west sides of the house . They come up quietly before the leaves appear and suddenly burst into color.
One of my neighbors has white ones in a pot but I love the red and they are especially beautiful to see along the tree lines at the edge of the fields.
