A wind up boar-once used for a maths lesson on something (can't remember what!) with more wind up toys. A wild thing from the story. A lot of my possesions have, at one time or another, been used in teaching. Mainly in art I suppose, and story telling. I have all the Chinese new year animals as various little toys, collected in a cardboard box which I also found during my clearout. At school I have a basket of nursery rhyme props, a bag containing a selection of about seven frogs from various sources. I have three bear sets, pigs, wolves, goats, model houses and Barbies to bury in the garden for Traction man-and this is only a small selection. I need a massive warehouse to store it all in!
I have just read a craft book that made me laugh out loud quite often. It is not every day you get that with a craft book, so I thought I would share. It is yet another felting book-I have a small collection now. I don't like to directly copy projects in books very often, though sometimes I do, but they always give me ideas and this one is brilliant. It is called 'I Felt Awesome' by Moxie.
If you are a beginner needle felter it would be great as it goes through the basics well. If you are not a beginner it is still good for its quirky original ideas.
