On the 6th day of christmas... true love gave to me six geese a laying...

Here's an old completed project - a goose from Tilda's 'Crafting Springtime Gifts' that I originally wanted to make a few years ago, remember?

I wanted to do stripy legs, but couldn't find the fabric.  However she does have lovely dungarees and a hat made from cabbages and roses fabric.  About the same time I made the snail pin cushion...
