Bird Watching


New to Katrina Krafts 
A range of colourful bird boxes to put up in your garden. Designed for wrens,blue tits, great tits and robins to name a few.


Heavy Horses


One of my love is the heavy horse. A gentle giant that has given its all to man over the ages whether it be on the battlefield as a War Horse or toiling in the fields, ploughing and pulling heavy loads.

I also love needle felting and what better way than to marry the two. I have been experimenting with armatures and found they are really good with larger projects. So at my WI craft afternoon yesterday I decided to make a Shire horse.
He has been nicknamed 'Shaun' as a friend of mine thought I was making a sheep. Ha ha.
The photograph doesn't do the finished animal justice as you can't see his black mane very well. 

Next month I have a trade stand at the Woodhall Spa County Show, Lincolnshire so I intend to make some more heavy horses.
If you are in the area on Sunday May 22nd do come along. It is a great family day out. And come and say hello.

Ocean Waste

Post mortem examinations of the thirteen North Sea Sperm Whales recently stranded on the coast of Germany reveals that their stomachs were full of plastic.
This so tragic and I only wish that they had done post-mortems in Britain. So much rubbish is dumped in our oceans and we have no idea where it goes to. Everyone has to clean up their act.

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright....


 

We had a wonderful experience when we visited the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park on Wednesday with our granddaughter and son.
Originally known as the Parrot Zoo, a haven for parrots of all size and colour. Then along came the Meerkats, Reindeer, Otter and Tapir, but last spring new arrivals Dehra with her 3 young cubs, Baseera, Sahjiba and Lajuka changed the Parrot Zoo forever.
These beautiful Bengal Tigers are magnificent. The cubs have grown yet are still as playful as kittens.
The enclosure allowed you to be a whisker away from them looking through thickened glass windows. The sun shone and they bathed in the warm, while Baseera bathed in the water. A new larger enclosure is in the making and we look forward to returning.

Dolly and Friend



Another commission completed, as these two cheeky Chihuahuas are sent off to their new owner.
They will be sitting pride of place on the mantle piece.

I have enjoyed doing them.




I am busy getting ready for the weekend Art & Craft Fair at Sibsey Village Hall, Lincolnshire April 16th/17th at 10-4pm

If you can make do come and say Hello.

Sophie

This little lady  was given to her new owner today as a present and has made her very happy. She has been named Sophie after her last pet, whom she sadly misses.
This has given me a big  smile - it isn't all about money when you know you are making people happy.
