A Heartfelt and Handmade Review and Giveaway from The Craggy Moor Store!

"...Bronwynn had a little lamb its fleece was gray and flecked!" When I announced Hannah Herdwick was coming to live with us my children became very excited. Of course I had to explain who Hannah was and show them her pictures which had been emailed to me. Who is Hannah? Hannah Herdwick is an adorable handcrafted lamb from The Craggy Moor Store! My children, especially my two daughters begged to know who Hannah would belong to. I explained decidedly that she would be a special friend of the whole family, though I knew it would be my youngest, Bronwynn, who would fall head-over-heels for the precious little creature! The girls started planning Hannah's first night's sleeping arrangements immediately.
Christy of the Craggy Moor is absolutely lovely and one knows from speaking with her that each creature she creates includes a very special, unique element--a small part of Christy's heart! She sees the personality expressed through each truly heartfelt creation. I have tried my hand at "doll -making" in the past and I know how exacting the work can be and how rewarding as you watch the bits of fabric, buttons, and wool become "real" and evoke a personality. Christy forms her lovely critters of re-purposed fabrics like gently worn sweaters and fills them with natural new wool batting, and just enough inert lentils or beans to lend some weight to them. Perfect for an Earth Day week review!

When Hannah arrived in the mail my daughter Bronwynn reached into the box and pulled out a handmade bag. With curiosity she stealthily untied the crocheted drawstring, her eyes alight as she withdrew the soft, weighted body of the precious little creature. Bronwynn quickly took it upon herself to make Hannah at home. Hannah is meticulously crafted and has those wonderful moveable joints that add character and movement to her soft and cuddly body. Her glass bead eyes seem to twinkle. She has already become a loved and cherished friend!
