Meet Sophie that fluffy cat (I can vouch for that as I am covered in fluff!) and shiny Fin the fish produced during our puppet making session on a lovely sunny day.

 Party decorations are now down. 
Tissue paper honeycomb balls and baubles in vibrant colours are
 my new happy feeling inside favourites. 
Their shapes, patterns and colour intensity are hypnotizing as they gently rotate when air brushes past them.

Whilst visiting my parents over the weekend my father showed 
me his latest creation.

His tribute to Sir Patrick Moore

Made from mostly reclaimed wood the sculpture is part of his series of work called heads.

I made these hand puppets of my girls for their Christmas presents.   
 They are made from stretchy fleece, cut and sewn together. A mouth piece inserted and then using fabrics, felt, wool etc, the features are added. 
I also made rods so their hands can be operated 
(this takes a lot of practise!!) 

Because the mouths are made of flexible material so you can make some
very funny expressions.

Just found this, what I think is a moth cocoon attached to the summerhouse window frame. It was glistening in the frosty sunshine. The outer shell looks like it has a metallic golden sheen.

I have been messing around with some photos of shells and pebbles. 
Looking for patterns and textures to incorporate into my beads.
