MEET HOOTCINTA THE OWL! HOOT HOOT!!

Upon visiting Buttonmad I found this cute cute tutorial for this owl, you can find it here. Yes, I know (if you read my post yesterday) this is pitfall #3.

I am always looking for projects for the Young women and I think we are going to do this this Wednesday.
In keeping with the spirit of using ButtonMad's tutorial, I put one of their buttons on the bum....

Now this bum looks about as broad as mine.....can you guess why? Hootcinta can not stay out of the M & M's....
GET OUT OF THOSE.........................those are MINE!!!!

Trying to make up for it by lifting the fabric cutter...... Silly owl....doesn't she know it will take more than a few ups and downs to work off those M & M's?





I guess I should take my own advice.....











I did a few more bags....






Maybe if I go up and down the stairs a few times I can have some more M & M's...... ???

This will really be a great project for the group. That owl could be a dead duck if it doesn't lay off your M&Ms, some things are definitely off limits LOL.

what an awesome young women's leader you are! So fun. I laughed about the M&Ms. For some reason when I sew I don't snack or drink pop, only water. Maybe it's bz I'm afraid of soiling the fabric, who knows. Anyway, you get me on the computer (which I work on) and it's an awful habit. I love how you can laugh at yourself bz it makes me smile and rings so true with my own little self! Your owl and bags are really cute too.

Love your owl gal! She is a hoot...haha! Okay sorry just my spin at lame humor...;-)
Kids love owls. My grands still love the ones I made them at Christmas! Have fun!

Stray Stitches said...

Hootcinta is adorable! Maybe you could share just a couple of m&m's with her ;)

Barbara said...

What a fun post...love Hootcinta too!

Jean said...

So cute! Have fun with your young ladies!

Penny said...

Maybe if you had overstuffed Hootcinta, she will get the message and stay off you M&Ms!

Pokey said...

Cutie patootie! I'm coming if they are peanut or almond m&m's....
:-}pokey

LynCC said...

lol :) I'm bad with M&M's too. Had to limit myself to only having a little bag of them when I'm at a movie. Love Hootcinda!! I should make her a cousin to go with Dev's "What a Hoot" quilt I'm working on!

Cute owls, my big!!!!! comes from ice cream, I love ice cream and especially Blizzards. We moved into two floor apartment 8 months ago and I chase my grandson up and down three days a week but other then firming somethings up not much difference. I think it has to do with age so I just say enjoy! Blessings Sandra

Deanna said...

M&M's....YUM! Maybe my middle name is Hootcinta?

Needled Mom said...

They will love making those owls. They will each get their own personality too, I am sure.

M&Ms are my downfall too. SIGH!!!

wackywoman said...

Yup! It's a great project.

ButtonMad said...

Thank you so much for this post Barb...and especially for the laughs...we love M and Ms in south Africa too...
My children say it's my sweet tooth...actually I have 32 of them!
Would happily live on chocolate alone...
And almost do!

ButtonMad said...

Forgot to say...when Tam was posting the owl on our blog she was going to write
Pippa has nothing on my behind

Kates younger sister that is...

Sure chocolate isn't part of her diet!

Regina said...

Vicki ♥ said...

I love the button on the bum :) Too cute!!! hugs Vicki

Gene Black said...

I can help keep Hootcinta out of the M&M's. Just send the M&M's to my house and I will keep them all safe. ;-)

Margarita said...

So cute Barb, Go M&M's LOL a lovely post.

Toni said...

LOL, you are cracking me UP!! Oh my goodness, you are way in TOO deep in those M&M's!! :) Too funny!! Great little owls, I'm sure the YM will enjoy them as well!

OOO love the pink batik bags too! You are a busy gal!

Jan said...

What a cutie owl! But you will have to train her to stay out of the M&M's!!!

Beeshebags said...

Hootcinta is almost as big a 'hoot' as you are my friend. Look forward to seeing the girls creations this week. Hugs Naomi

Kim D. said...

Cute post Barb! Love Hootcinta, she's adorable! My weakness is chocolate, once I take one bite I'm a goner. Yes, I'm a Choco-holic.
Your pink bags are so cute, can't wait to see the girls owls. I hope you take lots of photo's.

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

I believe stairs do = M & M's!!

AnnieO said...

Hoot hoot! Let me know when you figure out the ratio of trips up and down stairs per handful of M&M's...inquiring minds want to know!

SewCalGal said...

I wonder if this is a male owl trying to eat all the M&M "eggs"? We need to do a study to understand why? Let's eat all the M&Ms as part of our study and see if that helps us understand why Hoochinta wanted all the M&Ms in his tummy.

Teehee, that was fun.

Debi said...

What a cute owl...and my downfall...peanut M&Ms.

Ivory Spring said...

Cute owl! :)

Royce said...

Love the owl - he should be taught that M&Ms are for quilters not owls. Remember of the old commercials where the owl ate tootisie pops? Oh showing my age for sure.

Kathie said...

for me!
