Junk Modelling

Catfood box becomes deluxe Gnome chair, with the help of paint, double sided sticky tape and CD pen. Knitted blanket is extra but the gnome I have made this for has waited for quite a while, so I thought he deserved a bit of comfort. I promised Barney that I would make him a red chair, but it took me until now to do so. I think he is quite happy with himself, and will cheer me on as I work tomorrow. I am working at home as I have time off in lieu. I have two large folders of assessment awaiting which I am quite behind on. I will see how much I get done before giving in to the temptation of going out for a little drive!
The talented Paula, who made Barney, has an interesting series going on at her blog at the moment, where people are sewing things from children's books. It is really good! Lilly and Cassie being companiable earlier this evening.
William arrived safely at his destination a little while ago. He took ages and I was getting quite worried, but he made it! He is in today's post too in Dione's creative space.

Oh William...he made it! What a relief! Gnomies little chair is very nice and looks substantial- somewhere comfy to sit and think gnome thoughts...

So glad that William arrived safely. I had rather a soft spot for him. Barney looks really pleased with his new red chair.

I like the way cats are SERIOUS about sleep.
