Stringybark Farm - Block 5!

Yes, it's here! It's actually here! First of- apologies for a number of things. The block isn't entirely stitched and finished, and it's awfully late. My goodness, I'm not setting myself a good example here am I?

Oh well, slightly incomplete and a bit late, nevertheless - introducing The Piggery! Yes, you all guessed right. Those cute little ears belong to these trio of piggies!

Here we have Claudia, Penelope and Clive! They share a little pen near the barn at Stringybark Farm, and live quite happy lives. Well, you would too if you enjoyed wallowing in mud, eating lots of food, and generally lazing about. Claudia, Penelope and Clive were born from the same litter, and were a present to Farmer Jack from his rather dotty and slightly crazy sister, Imogen. Originally intended for a christmas lunch, Jack and Betty found themselves quite attached to this trio of troublesome piglets, and decided to keep them as pets.
They love chowing down on leftover scraps, and like nothing better than a good belly rub, whilst lying in the sun.
