I can`t believe January is halfway through. We have had walks on the beach, muddy walks in the wood and we`ve even had a few visits to the garden.
We are trying to get a rotten elder trunk out. We even bought a new trenching spade to help. Steve has been sawing roots but we`re still not there.
Here is the scarecrow waiting for its reincarnation. I found plenty of suitable clothes in the loft. Recently I was given some slightly stretchy flesh coloured fabric. This has proved perfect for scarecrow head making. Several layers anyway.
This is how I made the head
I tried to get a bit of shaping into the face but I could not manage any deepness to the eyes to form sockets. I haven`t got a long enough needle. The mouth was embroidered in chain stitch.
Other craft I have been involved in ....
I want to put a tiny teddy in the small ones.
And with Valentines Day in mind, I made these bookmarks using some of the lovely ribbon from my brother.
I wonder if we`re going to get any of the snow that`s being forecast.
