I made a chicken inspired by this one. Shes made of a felted wool sweater with wool felt for the beak and comb. I stuffed her with more of the wool I washed and carded.
I'm planning on letting our little silky hen sit on some eggs in the autumn or spring. I made this so that while we wait for her eggs to hatch we can role play the hen sitting on her eggs and then how she looks after her chicks. I haven't stitched any chicks yet but these little wooden chickens I made a while back are doing the job for now
I've also painted this little bookshelf a nice sky blue. It was getting so grubby and the paint job wasn't so well done in the first place so now it is fresh and pretty again

today I decided it was time to dig up some of our potatoes. I've not gotten big potatoes before when I've dug them up as soon as the stalks started to die off so this time I left them a bit longer. As you can see there are no visible stalks at all, they were completely rotted away. We got the largest potatoes yet!
