The generally used name for a group of Owls is a 'Parliament'.
Did you know that ?
I have , however, come across other collective nouns for these beautiful birds... for instance..
A 'Stare' of Owls
Or in today's case of owl crafting...
A 'Mess' of Owls!
A 'Mistake' of Owls!
Or how about this..
A Vintage of Owls ..pronounce it 'vintahhhge' and it sounds quite posh!
What I'd really love to know is this:
Has anyone ever actually seen a group of Owls ?
I mean... they don't hang about in groups in the area where I live..so I just wondered!
Apart from in the craft room, that is!
'Parliaments', 'Stares' , call them what you will, this funny group of six, somehow made it on to my workdesk, earlier today.
I wanted to use up some vintage scraps but the only problem was that I had run out of larger pieces of coloured felt...only black remaining!
Hmmmm! I was not sure but, 'Sally forth', I said to myself! ;-)
(Do you talk to yourself when you are alone? Well I do...and frequently, I answer myself back...and even more frequently, I tell myself off!!)
In actual fact, they didn't look too bad on the black felt...although they did look a tad confused!
At this point so was I!!
(Now this is where the primary school teacher in me, comes out!!)
What a shame that there isn't a call for 'Craft Tuition' as there is for English Tuition!!
Ooohh imagine if there was!!
I could craft all day ...and in the evenings too ;-)
