Something on my wish list.............

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!!

Some well deserved play time.............

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!!

A Raven's cage.................

............. 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.

I'm quite happy with the outcome.
