..........of basket weaving. I've been working on those lidded picnic baskets and egg baskets for near on three weeks now and decided it was time to have a little fun time with some colour and shapes and these are the results. I will do more of them when all the hard stuff is done!!
I must apologise for the poor photo quality - promise to try and do better next time!!

........and getting ready to make miniature splint woven baskets in both 1:12th and 1:24th scale. It is time consuming and sometimes tedious - but it has to be done!! The end results are always well worth while and I will show the results when they are finished.

.....but not entirely complete. Still working on the rollocks and oars - but they are on the way. In the meantime, I've finished painting one of the boats and put some of my fishing paraphanalia on and around it - and it looks not too bad.
What do you think?

finally coming together very nicely indeed. I wanted a boat on which I could display
my miniature fishing paraphanalia and asked Peter if he could oblige. And this is
the result so far - not finished yet - rollocks to be made, oars to be made and then I
have to paint it - but I was so excited to see it this close to completion, I just had to share!
For interest's sake, it measures 280mm long and 84mm wide.
I am one happy duck!!
I will post pictures again once I've painted it!!

from the serious business of basketry!! And this is what I played with today. I know it's still weaving but there you go!! Tomorrow I will start playing more seriously with some paper clay etc and build myself a little fishing shack! I need to have a break from the continuous weaving of baskets!!
As someone said - the fairies can live here!!

............. just completed for a commission. The raven needing a home measures 45mm high so the cage had to be a little larger than I would normally make. However, a fabulous challenge and I'm glad that I managed to complete it. It measures 80mm long, 60mm deep and 75mm high. The perch is free standing, which would make it a lot easier for placement of the raven.
I'm quite happy with the result.
