A birthday gift for someone I have never met

Hi Everyone :)

Once or twice a year my hubby has to travel to the US for work - I know such a hardship for him! I do wish he would take me though - ha ha :D

Last year when he went I was heavily pregnant with M (can you believe he is almost one?!  I can't...this year has gone way too quickly!) - in fact I gave birth about 3 days after he arrived home...LUCKY!

Anyway back to the story....Last year hubby's US work friend's wife had just given birth to their 1st daughter - so fantastic :)

This year hubby was over there working and was lucky enough to be able to help celebrate her 1st birthday with them, so I had to make a gift for him to give the little cutie :)

I decided to use some of this, an owl print, to make a quick softie...
this is a Cotton Drill I picked up at spotlight last year.

The owl was finished quite quickly :)
Although it took a lot of poly-fill...more than I would have thought possible, 
but then it has been quite a while since I made a softie ;D

Hubby tells me the gift was well received, so that makes me happy...I hope it gets lots of hugs over the next few years :)

What have you been sewing lately?
