 Michelle Green's needle felted chickens are £12 for little ones and £16 for larger ones. They are for decorative use only like all of Michelle's work.  The 'garlic boards' behind are made by Christine Burgess and sell for £8 each.

This continuous rain is stopping people coming into town. Yesterday all the shops - even Marks and Spencer- were empty at times. I'm told that it could keep raining through May as well. Well just build me an ark someone so my shop and I can float gently off!

Talking of water I heard a really nice story about Petersfield Lake. This year a family of Chinese geese has settled on an island in the middle of the lake. The resident Canadian geese aren't happy and one fisherman saw a Chinese geese chick killed by one of the Canadian geese. Watching the chicks scrabbling to get up the bank on to the island to the safety of their Dad's protection he decided to help. The intrepid fisherman waded out to the island and built a wooden ramp for the new chicks to use to get in and out of the water easily. Once on the island Chinese goose Dad makes such a din and flap that no Canadian goose goes near them.
