It's been quite a while since I started working on a badger to join the clan but after making a couple of heads that weren't quite right he was relegated to the bottom of the knitting bag! I think that the arrival of autumn has renewed my interest in him and over the weekend he was at last given a body, ears and a tail.
The pictures aren't great as my little camera can't handle the contrast very well but hopefully I'll get H to take some decent photos soon. Now that I have a prototype I'm happy with, I hope to be adding little cotton badgers to the shop from now on.
Talking of wildlife you may have noticed that I've been rather quiet on the hedgehog front. I've not had any news from the wildlife rescue about the 3 little ones that we found earlier in the year. It could well be that they didn't make it as they really were infested with ticks and so far I've been too much of a chicken to phone and find out! We do still have 2 adult hedgehogs, Fatty and Herbert Hogwart (possibly?), who visit the garden each night and gobble down the mix of peanuts, cat food, seeds and raisins that we put out. I'll keep you up to date with any more hoggy news!
