Getting the box of Easter decorations out from storage, I realised that I had plenty of decorative eggs but not a lot of chicks. Bunnies there were a-plenty - knitted, crocheted, furry and fluffy ones.
The nest of decorative stone eggs needed something to warm them.
So I crocheted this rather demented looking chicken!
I was inspired by this pattern for chicken egg cosies by Corinne Frieden, but rather than making a cosy I continued to crochet the base so that it could be made into a stuffed toy.
I don't know what it is about her, but I suspect that by Easter Sunday, she may have frightened all the bunnies into hiding!
I've just spotted all that lovely sunshine in the garden when I took the photos - it's gone now - dull and overcast and still freezing!
