Owls and Mickey Mouse

 Its Monday ! Another week just flew by ! I made this owl blanket and hat for a gift for a new baby .. I got the  pattern on Etsy and used the same colors they did in the pattern.. I did change the owl a little bit by crocheting the wings onto the body instead of sewing them on.
 It is so pretty ! The edging is just perfect for the blanket.

 My daughter in law asked for a Mickey Mouse set for her brothers baby , I bought a pattern but the directions just were not good.. so I looked on Pinterest and I had pinned a free pattern for a Mickey Mouse hat Mickey Mouse pattern and I made that one. I then made a diaper cover in red and crocheted "buttons" in yellow..I think it turned out really cute !
Anf finally.. this is what our house looks like at the moment. We decided to take down the wall in the foyer that seperates the living room .. to make the house more open. We also took down all the ceilings because they were popcorn ugly ceilings.. Once this is done the whole bottom  floor will have been remodeled.. There was a huge mirror on the wall and it was pretty scary Saturday morning when that came down !
We also decided to make the wall between the dining room and kitchen smaller so thats more open too..
What a mess we have on our hands.. but its not nearly as bad as when we had no kitchen for 3 months and I had to wash dishes in the basement utility sink ! Hopefully it won't take long to finish up and I am sure it will look so much better!
Hope you all have a wonderful week, Thanks for your visits and nice comments !!

Pretty blanket :-) I love owls. The colors are very nice.
That Mickey set is too cute! Especially the tail.
Home renovating can be scary, but it's worth it in the end. I'm sure you'll love the changes.

Priscilla, that owl blanket and hat are adorable. Love the Mickey diaper cover set too.
I am amazed at your remodel! I have the hardest time living through those types of things! We have done lots of things here that upgraded, but none so severe as removing walls really. Oh, we did knock out our bedroom wall and put a french door in. But I do not do well through the messy part. It is always so nice when it is done though!!! Looking forward to more pictures when you are done!!!!

Cute baby blanket, the owl is such a great feature, so so cute. I just started crocheting last year and have made 3 baby blankets so far, and just started my fourth, I might have to add a little something to this one!
Good luck on your re-do, I'm sure it will be fabulous!

Wow! All those cute projects and home renovating, too, Priscilla--do you ever sleep?! I just love the colors in your owl blanket--nice change from typical baby colors and the Mickey set is too cute :)

Hang in there with all the dust flying around--the end result will be well worth all the inconvenience!

My gosh Priscilla, both the owl blanket and M. mouse outfit are so precious! My youngest grandsons room is decorated woodland and he has a few owls. Can't wait to see your home finished. They just textured our basement walls yesterday. Coming along really nicely. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
