BurdaStyle is putting up quick projects to make as gifts. One is the Mini Owl Ornament. I have been looking at all the cute little owls people have been posting up and wanted to make some. I thought it would be the perfect activity for my English class. I love 'teaching'. I have two students who I adore. Zsófi loves making craft stuff so quite often we make various things. She's 11. Marci doesn't like crafts quite as much but he joins in anyway. Usually I get them to teach me stuff :) They come back from school with all these great ideas and I'm like 'I want to make one of those!' but this time it was reversed for once :) Marci came late so Zsófi and I each made an owl. It took over an hour but that's ok cos we were hand sewing and chatting. I am going to make millions of these! Just on my machine to speed things up.
I just discovered a new haberdashery on Podmaniczky today. The lady working there was so sweet. At first she said they only had the beads which were on the counter (some red, white and yellow ones - not suitable for owl eyes...). I was in a super hurry and I pouted a lot (I didn't have time to go into another rövidárúbolt...) so she said she would have a look out back :) She found a huge bag of black beads which was 900ft(!!) but she was nice and made me a little bag up of them. Haberdasheries I think are the one type of shop in Hungary that never ever have nasty staff.
