Jungle pals

I loved making this print. It was a little bit of a challenge getting the print size right to fit the little windows in the mount, but in the end I'm please with the results -
I still need to work on the photos of the prints in the etsy shop, it's just not quite right yet, still a little dark, but if I lighten them I lose too much colour, so lots of practise is still needed.

Penguin! Miniature pottery penguin having a cup of tea

I love working in miniature and this was great to make, even if it was a little fiddly.
Penguins are always my favourite, who doesn't love a penguin!!

Seal and very mini penguins!

This is a new one on Etsy today, a little grey seal and some very very tiny penguin pals.
It was a real challenge to paint the little penguins, but loved making it.

Felt sheep

Todays felt photo is my felt sheep! I love sheep and living in Somerset there are plenty to look at!
This little decoration is perfect to use as a wall or door hanger, I like to use them to hang on drawer handles.
This one is available on Etsy

Easter decorations

I have listed some cute Easter decorations in felt and pottery on Etsy -
I did have a lovely little Easter tree last year, but it grew, so is now planted in the garden!
I might try a branch this year, not sure or maybe have some daffodils and hang the decorations on door handles and hang some bunting instead...but then again having a little tree did look really pretty.
We love Easter, the children get an Easter egg hunt around the garden, (weather permitting!) and it is a lovely time to get together with special friends and family and spend some proper time together.

Felt penguins

These are the latest addition to the shop. SHOP Each one is hand cut and stitched by me.
I make each one differently so don't plan on making double ups.
Penguins in onesies are a fun decoration to hang in any room, I like to hang things around the house on door handles or drawers. A cute fun way to add a little splash of colour.
