Hedgehogs in the garden!

Well here I am ... already 8 months into my beady experiment of using one colour of beads for a whole year to create a themed body of work - Midnight Garden.  I am quite pleased with the meandering route the garden is taking with lots of twists and turns and the occasional unexpected but welcome nocturnal visitor.  So I was very happy when Perry at York Beads sent me some dagger beads because when I saw them my first thought was 'hedgehogs' - and really, what self-respecting rambling midnight moonlight garden would be complete without a couple of magical hedgehogs snuffling around the place?  And so here we have Mr & Mrs Prickles - she is a little smaller with a lovely shiny body and a playful twinkle in her eyes and he is larger and sort of dull (and a bit camera shy!) but he's solid and dependable and I think you can tell that they are very much in love ♥ ♥





Bye for now!

  20. Thank you for the wonderful response to the little hedgehogs everyone! No pattern at the moment I am afraid but I will be sure to post details on my blog if/when it is available!

  23. Solid work Kerrie. You would think the city is not a great place for a hedgehog but it too is a great place to hibernate as with all the hustle and bustle its very easy to become anonymous and find your nook in the woods. All they need is dependable owners and my building allows pets. I must be a strange creature cause we are talking about a set or pattern of baubles here but i guess i just love their little arses. Magical indeed!
