Birth Announcements

I've been working on making Eleanor's birth announcements when I have a little bit of time. I really should have started before she was born! I was feeling very lazy and was just going to order some. But then I felt guilty because I made Lois's when she was born. So I decided to go ahead and make Eleanor's too. Lois's were a little bird with a pocket on the back holding the announcement and a photo. You can see them here. So for Eleanor, I'm doing an owl. "Tweet, tweet" for Lois and "hoot, hoot" for Eleanor. Both can be used as ornaments afterwards. I'm hoping to have these in the mail before she's 2 months old!! My sewing machine had a mind of its own last night and it took me an hour to make just two of these. I need to do some minor repairs and I should be back to sewing tonight after the wee ones are asleep.
