A Little Bit of Fun!

I was asked to make a cupcake for a competition - I decided to make one out of felt.

My first little bit of needle felting....a cupcake with strawberry on top.

This was the second attempt, much happier with this one.

This was the first attempt....which wasn't so good. I found the proportions all wrong, the base of the 'sponge' looked more like a muffin and it all looked a bit like a wobbly tower.

This is the tea cosy I made to keeep it company. I've given this to a friend who loves tea. I have one at home and it keeps the tea hot for over 2 hours...nice but a bit stewed!

Tea and cake...lovely!

Claudy Jongstra

While I was studying my City and Guilds, we had to select artists and look at their work.
Claudy was one of my choices, I remember looking at her work and being blown away!
I hope you enjoy this.

I want a wall like this in my stairway! But then I think I would sit there stroking it  - all day...
