Sue - utterly brilliant! I never got to grips with paper sculpture - just not precise enough I guess. But those are just to die for!

Thanks - the artist is one of the oldest - I was maybe 13 when I made that one.

The penguins rule :yes:

 

Reading through this lovely thread has made me realise that I don't do any art and craft type thing whatsoever :shock:

I think I need a hobby.

I think I'm after something a bit more challenging :yes:, but something I can do at home.

For my birthday Karen gave me a fantastic craft book - talks you through a myriad of different craft projects, so you could try a few and see what you enjoy. I will let you have the book details in case it appeals to you.

:flower::joy::smooch:

:idea: you could bring it on the 27th, if its not too bulky (I'll swap it for your birthday pressie :wink:). I'll photocopy the stuff I like the look of and post it back :yes: (or give it to Rain to bring back in July)

 

I do like the idea of making stained glass :yes:. Though I guess that's not a do it at home type thing. Might see if there are any workshops I can go and watch.

 

I used to have a Big Book of Arts & Crafts when I was about 10 :yes: Really should've kept it :wail:

It's a small but thick book which will not copy well (and I do hate broken spines on books), but I can certainly bring it along for you to have a look at - but why not just check out a few second-hand bookshops; there are always loads of craft books.

I had a look in the Oxfam bookshop on Saturday, but they had nothing. I'll hunt around for a craft shop in London.
