secret sewing

this HUGE pile of woodland creatures is my secret sewing project...the Oxford Street John Lewis is now displaying all these happy fellows in their craft area (photo to follow soon I hope!) They are having ribbon looped through their red hanging loops and are being strung like festive bunting between giant knitting needles! There are 10 of each creature here...the mushrooms & acorns took about a week, and the hedgehogs and foxes about two weeks...they seemed to take forever to finish, and I had such a strict deadline that couldn't be changed!...but all the early mornings and late nights were definitely worth it...I can't wait to see them in the display, they'll be up until the end of January so I should get the chance to go up there and take a peep in person!
