Spring Lambs

Spring Lambs

With the weather turning milder, and the bulbs showing their colours, we have been feeling all Spring like in our house. I am running a children’s craft workshop in a few weeks with Christine, a great friend of mine, and we are going to be making Spring Lambs. I wanted to make some beforehand, to show in the workshop and had Ted, an enthusiastic little helper.I had been totally inspired by the wonderful sheep I had seen on the Inadvertent Farmer website, do check out the website sweetgrace.typepad.com for full detailed instructions of how to make your own.
