Little quick projects.

We have a swap coming up on the Down To Earth forum later this month.  One of the items we are required to make is a bookmark (well, two are to be swapped).  I made four today so that I could choose the most appropriate pair when I find out who my swap partner is.

Last week we bought two more hens for our flock, and as we collected them on Good Friday, Ken suggested we take an Easter egg or something up to the seller, who has become a friend since we've been buying his chooks!  But instead of a chocolate egg, I made him a mug rug.  I think he liked it - hope so!  He can pick which side is the front or the back.

Very clever way to make bookmarks. And I love that the mug rug is two-sided!

The bookmarks are so sweet! And the chicken mug rugs are adorable!
