Day 361 27th December
May start my “chicken bag” soon. I don’t think it will look like the pattern, but it is a good place to start.

The hens could be orangy brown or black. We shall see…

Day 357 December 23rd
My newly stitched runner did not last long; Tyrion( who is not allowed on the table) decided that it was there for him. In the evening some red wine managed to find its way on it.
This morning  it is back to its original state. How long for?
