We've known this for a while but owls are definitely the new squirrel. Do you know what I mean? They are everywhere. We've even got some in the shop.

1. Amy Ruppel "plume" pillows (which just got a nice mention in this month's Lucky)
2. Miele Fresca/Lilywear long-sleeved owl shirts
3. One Good Bumblebee's owl notecard sets

And in other news - it is absolutely autumn here and everyone is knitting, crocheting, felting and sewing away to make lovely scarves and hats for the shop. (You might catch me working on the Endlessly Long Husband Scarf project as well.)

Finally - I didn't stock too many Jill Bliss journals and they are already sold out! The journals will be reprinted in December so I'll get a bunch then. I will be getting her other work sooner than that, by the Blissen collective. Expect fun 2006 calendars, notecards and other finely illustrated items.
