The Spring Nature table is slowly coming to life with some sweet little handmade creations. The first order of business was to create some "root children" to bring the first Spring shoots onto our table in these early Spring days.
Basically they are peg dolls with a brown tube...the one with the round hat has a hat made with 2 brown "doughnut" pieces...one of the holes is for the head to fit through, and the other hole is whipstitched and some "greenery" is poking through, (it's full of wool stuffing), and then glued onto the head.
The other one has a triangular hat, with the top folded down and again some green poking through, (again glued on)!
Then of course, I got totally sidetracked and started looking up "root children"...oh my goodness...look what I found!!!
