A "suck it and see" moment................

I had a whim to make a small table/stool with a woven top and here is the result.  I was quite happy with it seeing I didn't really put a lot of thought into it before jumping in!!

Maybe time to make a bigger one now!!

More progress on Flourish & Blotts................

Today I did some more work on the cobblestones, painted the door (yet to be installed), finished the step and the bollards got their first coat of paint.  Ever onwards!!

Another Flourish & Blotts update............

I have finally finished laying and painting the cobblestones.  Still have to add a few details like bits of grass and moss etc and I also have to clay the step.  Once the bollards have been painted, they will be installed and the chain attached.  Slowly but surely coming together.

Group Photo....................

Having a little fun here!!  I got a beautiful doll made by Irina Martin some time ago and at last
got around to making a cart for her to pull along.  I also made a few teddies
and thought they would look good in the cart.  A pleasant change to be doing
something for myself for a change!!

And here is the dolly - isn't she just gorgeous.  I was so lucky to get to Etsy just at the right time.  Irina's  dolls are so very hard to get your hands on!

A market basket and more....

I've been playing with handle decorations on this market basket.

Detail of the  cross knot at attachment point

Detail of the  V knot on the top of handle.

Just some ideas for the students at Castine Guild School to play with in June when they do my class.  Really looking forward to it.
