He is a bit of a decadent owl. He is made from 100% merino wool and his tummy feathers are made from VV Rouleaux velvet ribbon and hand stitched with embroidery floss. His eyes and beak are embroidered with Mirasol K'acha yarn, a mix of alpaca, silk and merino from Peru.
He's not haughty about it though. Just sleepy. Like me. I was up very early to go to the Focus on Imgaging exhibition in Birmingham today. It was interesting, with some great demonstrations but a few too many stands selling picture frames and photo albums for my taste. Lovely to have a day off and an outing though :D
