Owl Swap/Thanks/ Prayers for a friend

I have been waiting to post the owl swap pictures until everyone got them.  Everyone else has posted the pictures except our Norway swapper.  She may have gotten the owls or will soon.  First is the owl that I made.  This was second attempt.  The first one came out really scary so I scrapped it.
 
 
Little owlets ready to be mailed. 
 
This sweet hand sewn owl cutie is from Holly from Cotton Pickin Fun.  She joined the swap at the last minute when two others had to drop out.  Isn't this owl adorable.
 
 
This cutie was sent all the way from Norway.  It is sweet owl in a match box.......this lucky guy has his own blanket and pillow.
 
 
This hand sewn owlet was made by Genie from Buttons by Baga.  She always does such a good job.  I never have to twist her arm to join a swap. 
 
Last by not least is this cute little ornament by Judy of 20 North Ora.  If you follow or know Judy, you know that she is one creative person.  This will be on my tree this year.  Judy's family could use some prayers right now. 
Thank you all for participating in the owl swap.  This was a lot of fun.  All ideas were so different.  I love swaps like this.

Thank you Bloggy Friends for all your sweet comments this week.  I didn't intend to post so much about our kitty.  I just started and it came out.  Kinda like how I post anything.  Not a lot of thought, just words that come out.
We need some big prayers for a co-worker of my husbands.  Her name is Deb.  She is having tests in the hospital.  She is such a hard worker and sweet person.  She has seen an oncologist and may start chemo next week.   I know you bloggers can do amazing things......so please send some prayers her way.
HUGS to all of you.  It is heartwarming knowing how much you care.

Dear Debby, So sorry for the loss of your dear kitty. Strange how quickly a pet becomes family. The owls are so cute. If I don't get around here next week, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your friendship, and I am grateful the world has a sweet soul like yours in it! Happy Thanksgiving my friend. Love, Penny

Hi Debby, Your owls are so adorable. Somee really don't look like they are hard to make. Do you wish that you had the time to make all of the cute things that you see? You know I will add your husband's friend Deb to my prayer list. We can never have enough people saying prayers. I am sorry about your kitten. We do become attached. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Hello Debby, so glad you liked the owls. I havn't received mine yet, but when l do there will be a post about them. Expect it takes a bit longer being so far away. Sorry for being so slow in replying, health has been really bad lately and l havn't managed computer time. Those buzzards sound awful, what a mess they make. Your friend is in my prayers. Hugs and blessings, Pam xx

Oh Debby your owls are just too adorable. How creative everyone is and of course yourself.
The only owl I have ever did was years ago when I owned a ceramic shop.
I certainly will add Deb to my prayers.
Hope one day I can join one of your swaps.
Sending you lots of love and wishes for a very nice Thanksgiving.
Love ya
Maggie

Hey Debby, so sorry for your loss. What a sweet and heart warming story. I did need tissues after reading it. We lost our beautiful kitty last year. She was 14 and had congestive heart failure and was going down hill fast.
I wanted to let you know that I finally posted about my owls. I am so sorry it has taken me a while. I truly love each and every one and was so tickled to be a part of your swap. Thank you for taking the time to put it together and mail everything out. You are welcome to go visit my blog and see my post. Thank you again, Holly
