The first signs of spring

 My latest piece wasnt planned from the outset: it kind of developed from the lovely bit of wood which I used for the shed (above). Then, rummaging around in my fabric scrap drawer, I had the idea of making a simple deckchair!

 Nothing says Spring better than daffodils: these are made from tiny nails, bent at the tip with the ends painted yellow. The outer petals are little scraps of dried acrylic paint, threaded on to the nail. 


A washing line adds a bit of colour, and I made this very simple lawnmower to balance out the composition!















"First sign of spring" is available for sale in my Madebyhandonline shop here.
Have a good week folks!

    You are so ingenious with your clever touches, the lawnmower, the deckchair, the washing line. I love it.
