Owls have been big for a while now. Owl tea towels, owl patterned fabric, owl mugs, owl cushions, owls on everything!
Don't get me wrong, owls are great, particularly when delivering your post, but some of my crafty buddies and I suspect that the reign of the owl might be coming to an end, and that the swan is going to be the next big thing - so, I needle felted a swan in anticipation.
Spread it around and we'll see if we can't make swans the new owl.
Only time will tell!
