shiver me whiskers!


More making with Niblet yesterday. He had an Octonaut annual for his birthday, last December….

….. and finally decided he wanted to make something from it!!

There are instructions for making Peso out of a cardboard tube and various bits of coloured paper or felt. I changed it a little bit and designed my own Kwazii (not too hard if you have a picture).

Surprisingly enough, I didn’t have all the appropriate coloured paper, but that was soon remedied. (I had all the bits to do all the details!!)

I cut out all the pieces and Niblet helped stick it all together. As usual, I forgot to take photos during the construction process – just getting on with it so Niblet didn’t lose interest!!

So here are the finished articles




I have also started on a Captain Barnacles, but have had to do a real rummage for the right shades of blue. In fact, the large blue piece in the picture will be changed to a lighter blue…..soon.

I have recently become aware of adverts appearing at the bottom of my posts. These are nothing to do with me, I don’t know why they are there or indeed how to get rid of them. I apologise.
