My little Jedi was thrilled with him. I loved making him, especially as it only took a few hours and takes up very little yarn. This great pattern is by Raynour at Jellybum on Etsy and is available here for anyone who wants one.
Yesterday we actually had a sunny day here! So we made sure it was spent outside. We took a trip to Castle Espie a Wetland centre on the shores of Strangford Lough. This weekend was their Lifestyle Green show. We had such a great day watching and feeding the birds.
We took part in a tree naming competition and bought a book on identifying trees.
Which came in helpful on Dad an O 's walk in Donard Forest this morning.
I loved the willow sculpture and the the kids got so involved that they didn't want to leave. I think they enjoyed it so much because it involved a certain amount of engineering as well as dexterity and design. Skills that I would love to encourage my children to develop. So I'm planning to try making some for our garden with the help of the children.
All in all a lovely day walking and playing in the trees and watching the birds.
