A bit late, I forgot to post a photo yesterday.

Some of the flowers have blown off as I made the mistake of leaving it outside through the night.
Clearly my sewing up leaves anlot to be desired.

Very pretty, Namsnanny.

That’s lovely. How long did it take you to make?

Very pretty.

Thanks CanadianGran I enjoyed making it.
Supposed to be a spring woodland scene

I love spring pink or white blossom don't you ziplock? So fleeting though. Thank you

That’s lovely. How long did it take you to make?

Well, a couple of hours a day, when the light was suitable.
The little creatures (ladybird, snail, bee) were the hardest, or should I say the most tedious.
I split the wool into 2 strands to get the insects the correct size.

That’s lovely, such a clever idea.

Namsnanny Tue 11-Apr-23 18:03:11

ginny I'm glad you think so.
I might try to knit some small rabbits to replace the wooden ones for next year.

Nice of you to post Theexwife

Yes, I do love the spring blossom. So fleeting, as you say, but so beautiful. 😊

That's lovely. I hope you can keep it safely for next year.
You must have a lot of patience!

I've got a box that should keep it secure lixy but we do occasionally get the odd mouse in the loft! shock grin

It keeps me focused, and knitting helps me in many ways.
