Reporting in - part two......

Showing some of the weaving work done recently - I've had so much fun with these!!!!

The hedgehogs are just gorgeous - made by Annie Willis, UK.  She makes some gorgeous animals!

Some old styles, some new styles!  I just love the hanging baskets - I surprised even myself!! hahaha!  I just wish I could weave faster.

I should take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy easter - hope your holiday weekend has been wonderful!

Reporting in........

I've been busy.  I'm off to Sydney on Thursday to run a little workshop working with paperclay - which I am so looking forward to.  The workshop itself will run over three days which gets us home again very late on Sunday night.  Then on Friday, we are off to the Sydney Miniatures Fair.  I shall definitely have lots to show and tell in the next couple of weeks!

In the meantime, I have been working on Willunga and here are a few pics.

Willunga front declared finished


The lights have yet to be installed - but that is a job for next week!  This is going to be exhibited at the Sydney Miniature Fair so it will be ready!  Hahahaha!

My shed!

This little shed was a project of our miniature club.  We were each given the supplies to build this - and they all look so different.  The club is exhibiting the sheds too - I will take pics of them all at the Fair.
The floor in this shed looks blue - but it isn't really!  It's a concrete floor and is grey-ish!!

I have also been working on baskets - maybe I'll get a chance to show them before the madness of the next 2 weeks starts - and maybe not!!  We shall see.

I hope everyone is keeping well.  The weather here is cooling down nicely - daytime temps are down to 23-24 degrees and nights are just great for sleeping now!  Which means that all you people in the northern hemisphere must be getting some warm weather happening - soon at least!  Take care everyone - and cheers!

Post script to my last posting.......

I could not upload these 2 photos and was determined that I would get these pics up as well!!  More baskets.....of course!  Main reason being to show the different borders I have been playing with.

And that's it from me for now.  I hope you are all keeping well and busy.  All you people in the northern hemisphere must now be moving towards spring and hopefully some warmer weather - have fun in the sun!  Take care of yourselves and bye for now!

Some new baskets and other stuff!!

I have too many projects on the go at the moment - but at least it's keeping me busy!

I have been working on items for Willunga.  I've made a wing back chair and dining chair but will photo these later when I have the table and hutch finished as well.  I have made a bed, but need to finish off with a mattress and bed clothes before I can photo those!  I have also made a double "concrete" laundry tub which I will house in the back yard - will photo this when I have installed it.

What I do have a photo of is the screen I made for the bedroom so at least I can show that!!

You will notice I snuck an egg basket in to the pic!!
