It is very lovely, Val.  You're so talented, you should be able to make it....or something very like it.

Beautiful work.  Wouldn't have the knowledge or patience to tackle anything like it.  I admire those who produce such gorgeous work.

Or Yo-Yo's ...

Yes, thank you girls, I really would love to attempt it; I think cutting out all those circles will be a bit of a challenge!!

 

Eileen, I had the same thoughts - it doesn't look too difficult ... smile

Well, I did make it, and my friend said she prefers mine to Ulla's (but then she would say that, wouldn't she!)

I am very proud of it too. I really must try to find a way that suits me to introduce pictures on here.

 

Now, my next door neighbour is divorced, and has now met another lady. This time with two daughters (he has just one son). Both his son and the eldest of the two girls I know through school (when I worked there ..!).

They have just moved in next door, and the girls would like their bedrooms painted - one in pink and one in 'raspberry'. I happened on this and I've decided to make one each for the girls, and frame them, as a welcoming present.

Then I thought that I must make something for the son. (I have already made him a Gruffalo bag 2 years ago) but apparently apart from gizmos, he is now into sharks and whales, so I thought I would make him a whale, and I saw this one, and although I can't find instructions, I reckon I could do this for him, as the pieces are pictured laid out - I just have to keep them in proportion. Well, I can try I suppose! big_laugh

Val, you need to let us know your details on Pinterest, when I click the links, it comes up with a whole page of choices - do I want to use Facebook to log in, Twitter, etc. then, when I try it asks me more questions.  For example, here is my link to Pinterest.

I'll try that again!

Oh my goodness, they're just incredible.  I love the one of the river tumbling over the rocks (3rd pic down I think, the unfinished one).

I am pleased that you liked them, ladies.  I would never attempt anything like that.
