new pattern set completed!

i'd been meaning to expand my Little Softies Farm sewing pattern for months...
most of the new animals had been made after the usual trials and changes to the patterns...
Horse, Cow, Hen, Dog & Cat have been added to the original set of Donkey, Goat, Lamb, Goose, Pig & Piglet...
it takes a ridiculous amount of time to do all this and then to write everything up with instructions & diagrams (as well as the patterns). but the Big Farm Set pattern is now available in my shop. it would be fun to fill up a christmas stocking with the whole set!

who doesn't love a chicken?

the very chilly & gray weather here in the northwest has given me the Christmas Crafting Bug just a little early!
here's a new ornament i just designed, called "chicken 'n egg".
i'm offering the sewing pattern for sale in my etsy shop.
i can't wait to get our tree & display her with my other handmade ornaments.
this would be fun as a kitchen decoration too - keeping chickens being such the rage now.
and anyway, who doesn't love a chicken?
