A little bit of game!

I've been feathering pheasants over the last week, I sold out of all but a mallard drake on my website months ago & have just never found the time to sit down & replace them. When I tell you that each & every feather is scaled down & added one x one to a polymer base, you might understand why I sometimes "drag my feet" when it comes to making them! I have to be in the mood!

 A Brace of Pheasant hanging traditionally!

 A hen pheasant on her own!

 A lying cock pheasant

& finally, a cock pheasant on a log.

So I finish them & am all ready to sort out my website, only to find that the damned website server appears to be down...grrrr....not only can I not work on the site but can't even access it.....they'd better get it sorted soon otherwise there will be smoke pouring out of my ears!

Lots of little jars!

I seem to have been filling lots of little jars over the last few months so I decided that a little shelf full of jars would be cute & I knew that somewhere in my stash I had just the little shelves.  It took me longer to find the shelves & then paint them than it did to make the jars! One of these days, I'll surprise myself & be so organised that I know exactly where to find things!

Eventually though, they were worth all the effort...I love them! :-))

Hundreds of tiny peaches!

I have been making the hundreds it seems! Whole peaches, half peaches, peaches with stones, peach slices......I think I mixed just a little too much clay & there was no way I was going to waste it! Here a few of the pieces I put together will all those peaches! :-))

I think it'll be a while before I make any more peaches!
