we visited a friend where M. held this tiny chick, his?her? mother was no longer interested in it and our friend led it to another hen who had already adopted four other chicks, we were on tenterhooks: would she accept it? he crept towards her and just manoeuvred itself under her wings, amidst the others, MotherHen spread her wings over all of them Yes!
|and then on our way back home we found this unfortunate bird, smothered by car wheels.....|
|long cloth with lots of stitches|
|really nice old fashioned basket came along with M.|
|at last the start of a new cloth: an owl|
|two new inhabitants: mother goose and chick, I am very glad they came together as I have no idea what the chick needs at this point in her life; it's nice to have a mother close by when you're this small.|
an attempt at making a goose print, smudgy results, things don't always go the way you expect them to.....
