After loving the unexpected sunshine a couple of weeks ago he's definitely started slowing down, has stopped eating and is getting ready for the big sleep. After a couple of weeks, when we're sure he has nothing left in his stomach, we'll put him in the workshop fridge for the next 12-14 weeks.
We were thrilled last year when he survived his first ever hibernation. See here for more lovely pictures of
The ladies have all started growing some winter feathers and have also been loving the sunshine this weekend. Apparently we have some more rescue chickens booked in to collect sometime soon! (knew it wouldn't be long)
The ducks continue to be a joy to watch - but hard work to put away at night. I frequently find Myrtle the black duck in with the chickens - but Bertie the boy duck refuses to get in the duck house unless she's out of there and back where she belongs! They are very vocal - I swear they are laughing at me trying to herd them in...
Other than that it's been more of the same in the Chipper Nelly workshop - lots and lots of Christmas makes!
Some vintage Christmas blocks
Some Santa blocks
Happy holiday blocks
Some more vintage blocks
And, my favourite, Ho Ho flamin' Ho blocks
These blocks are bigger than my usual ones (6cm). The 'flamin' block comes separately so that it only need come out when the festive cheer begins to wane!
Thank you so much for the lovely comments about my previous Christmas offerings - the Snowy Vintage ones are my favourite too! All available HERE!
Now, my blog has very nearly 100 followers (how funny!) which I think warrants a giveaway! See next post...
