No I don't have a worm problem! I made my first Fimo worm about 10 years ago for a bit of fun and even made small ones to sit on top of a computer screen. Looking through my Fimo (modeling clay you bake in the oven) I thought about my worms and that I should make more. They were a bit bigger than the first creation but I kept their faces the same. I started to wondered if I could add things to them. I friend of mine plays the guitar and I want to try and make a guitar playing worm. Not as easy as it sounds. The use of cocktail sticks helped. After 2 hours the master piece was finished and my friend was pleased with the result. Not sure how I ended up making the worm work like him though!!! I hope you like it.

The Happy Hounds and I went to Delamere Forest on Sunday for a lovely walk. Mimi couldn't wait to jump out the car. The weather was lovely that time of the morning as it hadn't got too hot for the dogs. Even walking in the shade of the trees can get abit warm for them. We were stopped by a lovely gentleman who had two whippets with him. We did the usual chatting about sight hounds and what happens to them. I was explain about Mr Milo having his shy days when the man said 'Your from GRWE and I am sure I have met your dogs before.' It is strange how people know your dogs but not you. I doubt the hounds have been out and about with out me so it must have been at an event somewhere. Small world! We carried on with our walk but Mr Milo was starting to feel tired and was dragging his paws along. Mimi was pleased to see and horse which past us and looked disappointed when I wouldn't let her play with it. Maybe next time Mimi. Once back to the car, fed and watered we head off home not before stopping off at Lady Hayes to buy some material to make cushions, spent more than I should have done but what the heck you can't take it with you!

My Mum has called these 'Silent Wind chimes' but I am going to go with Mobiles. They are made by sewing to pieces of shaped felt together by hand and then sewing another coloured piece of felt in the middle. The ribbon is attached at the bottom between the two felt pieces. They are great for putting out in the garden or even in a children's bedroom. They are lovely to watch waving in the breeze. I have already put them on folksy.com and they have had a few looks at. I have plans for more involving farm animals so watch this space as they say...
