Tom's Miniature Garden

This is Tom's Miniature Garden. He made it for the Dundee Flower Show which has been on all weekend in Camperdown Park. He spent hours on it getting it just right. He got a wee bit of help with planning from me and help to make the box from his dad.
It was all worth the effort as he won 1st prize and two trophies for his entry not to mention £15 in cash!

Making a Nuno Felt Scarf

I recently learned how to make Nuno Felt. This is the scarf I made. I am looking forward to wearing it and going by the weather I'll be wearing it soon.

Here is another Nuno scarf I made for myself but got Christina to model it for me. I dyed the silk chiffon in cold water dye and then added the various green colours of wool fibre to create the design. I'm pleased with the end result. I hope to make some for presents for friends for Christmas!
