I sit here at the computer the sun shines brightly enhancing the dark
grey fluffy clouds, I don't think its going to rain. Work is progressing
towards the exhibition and today I have six new characters all finished
ready to be packed away. But before they disappear for a while I
thought I would share with you some images and stories. Once finished I
carried them down the garden to my little summer house, its a bit bright
in the garden and the sun catches the glistening surface of the glaze.
So to the summer house we went and on my lovely pale yellow
formica table, standing to attention, I snapped away. First two I will
show you are rabbit with the big years and my lovely badger. They are
quite fond of each other having been sewn and stitched at the same time !
If you look back in my blog you will see a picture of big eared rabbit
before she came home with no arms or body. Now she is ready for winter
with her handknit woolly shawl wrapped tightly round her neck. Badger of
course is much tougher although he is sporting some nice tweed and velvet lined grey collar to keep
out the bitter wind.
the dinner is slowly roasting in the oven and there is a lovely smell of fennel and vegetables. Dinner is going to be eaten in the summerhouse tonight on my new pale yellow formica tablewhilst listening on my pink Roberts radio to The Archers. I have been so busy the last couple of weeks and sewing is progressing. I thought it was about time to introduce you all to Mr Brock, he's a devilish badger with a wicked sense of humour. He wears his mining badge with enormous pride, as his, are always the best burrows. Another squirrel has joined the woodland menagerie as well as a little weasal and a cloth eared rabbit. If the sun shines later this week I will take some photographs. One thing I have to point out is he has no wheels in these photos as he wasn't really quite finished watch this space for finished image
