Another Little Owl Teether for a New Baby Girl

What a crazy weekend.  My mom and sister were hosting a baby shower for my cousin on Saturday.  They live about 3 hours away from me, and it's February in Michigan.   For those of you not acquainted with Lake Effect Snow, let me just say we were not able to leave as scheduled on Friday evening.  Blowing snow + icy road conditions + my family + our old minivan = we're staying home.  Things cleared up enough on Saturday morning that we decided it was ok to make the drive, but we made it there a bit late.

I made this little guy awhile back when I worked up the other little teether toy for Kee-ku back here (link to The Rubber Punkin tute on how to make one yourself is also there).  Actually, this one was made first as a little piece of handmade love for my cousin's new baby.  I didn't post about it back then because I had not yet been able to give it to her.

The coast is clear now.  :)

P.S.  I am SO ready for this crazy long winter to be over.  Why is it that February, though the shortest month of the year, feels the absolute longest?  My need for spring is so overwhelming I compiled a bunch of spring-y images into a lil gallery on Flickr.  Every time I look out into the gray sludge out my window, I'm going to try to redirect my thoughts this way:

(Thanks for explaining how to make Flickr mosaics to me, Erika!)

I'm reading with my little girl on my lap (she's 18 months) and she said, "Pwitty!" and then "Mine?" I think you got the tot seal of approval!
