the chicken and the egg :: springtime is here! (pt.4)
well, it worked! we made some lovely little springtime grass in the beautiful egg shells. i was worried when we started this little project that i had blown it and over watered them, but i just added a few more seeds on top and viola! grass! fast! it's such a fun way to welcome spring. it's been rainy a lot here. as per usual this time of year. and we decided that when we feel complainy about it, instead, we say, "thank you rain! for making everything GREEN again!" it's a good exercise in "glass half full."
i also finally whipped up a little felted chick to go along with the mama hen. both are imperfect, but lucky for me, you can't tell how from these photos. it's good, though. i'm learning. i may try to make a few more babies and see if i can improve. til then, these 2 good birds hold our mealtime blessing and help us celebrate the season every day.
