Progress On The Home Front

This photo is way behind the truth of the matter. The grey tops of the step-end thingy's will be changed by render to a bit brighter rockish goldish colour. And the red has toned itself down too. It's very Pompei. Oh, and he's finished the front rock wall now. I really should just take another photo, but it's raining. You should see the plans. They'll need framing in the end. They are more whiteout than paper now, as ideas come and go and are modified. It's good.

Christmas Tea Cosies

The Cheshire Cat above, and
Bluebird for my mother-in(out of) law, below.
These are all for my new Tea Cosies. The faces are for the back of the smiles. They'll be clothed and have hats. I'll upload the drawing too, when I'm done.
Made from old blankets.

For The Cup Cake Practitioner

For Christmas.

Jaden's Hanky Box

It's very difficult to get photo's because of the plastic. I used the same (vintage) cartoon magazine as in Rob's box. The inside is from an old National Geographic. I've cut out a few of the talking bubbles to add here and there, which I'm sure Jadey will appreciate... funny. And added teeth or re-arranged the images. Luckily, in my stash (the stash to end all stashes), I had a space age vintage button. Of course I did! It will have been my Grandma's.

Have a look at the rest HERE. There's a tutorial in there somewhere too. The biggest difficulty is finding an appropriate hole punch.

Myself (aged 28, ages ago), Jaden's Uncle Rob and Aunty Claire and his mother Ruby.

I've got news for you Pal! I don't explode so easily!

This is for Christmas.
