We are all Hedgehogs

We are all hedgehogs this winter. Hedgehogs are now hibernating and we are too. I was thinking about a hedgehog that visited our garden last year. I made this hedgehog out of clay because I like working with my hands. First I made the body and then I made the individual spikes. Each spike I pinched between my fingers. I painted the eyes and nose a brown and black colour. I made it in half a week. My hedgehog is sitting on leaves that I collected from the park in autumn.
