It all began with a hairy, woolly ball and some very sharp barbed needles and a lot of stabbing and shaping which was a great stress release!
Then we got to admire and choose from lots of woolly colours
And learnt how to shape wings and make polka dots and flat pieces of felt to make my hens crown and tail.
And so, my Easter hen Harriet was born...
Everyone's hens turned out differently and it was wonderful to see how each one of the 5 of us made different hens from the same materials.
We got to bring out little starter kits home and I have made a polka dot heart since then. I hope this will be the beginning of a beautiful crafting relationship :o)
Lastly I thought I would show you what little pins (and an extra crochet covered pebble)I made for my blog swap with Hannapat of Cosmos and Cotton organised by the lovely Jo of Three Stories High
You can see the gorgeous gifts I received from Hannapat in my previous post of collages. I love this sweet blogging community of generous and loving people.
