Distractions

Just when I thought I was heading into the home straight with making stock (thank you very much to the lovely ladies who bought hairbands from me after the last post!) I was distracted.


Destined to be stuck onto brooch baaaaaaacks.

Well, wouldn't you be?

I had the chance to take a Fimo course at our local craft shop, and made loveliness for the upcoming winter festivities (ahem) which I will show you in the fullness of time; but since I came home I have been making non seasonal flowery and sheepy pieces. I find them all the more appealing because their coats appear to be made from Swiss rolls. And remind me that my very favourite village names are Sheepy Magna and Sheepy Parva. I always smile when I see those on a map.

  1. Oh, those eyes! I think the exasperated-looking one at top right is my favorite. And those DO look like cinnamon swirls...
