ML panto hatThis weekend I have been creating a prototype horse hat for my daughter’s school pantomime. The ears actually stick upright and not out (I forgot that when I was doodling).

At the moment it looks like it could be pretty much any animal…despite the addition of a dodgy-looking mane. BUT something fancy and a bit circus-horse-ish will happen on the top. I hope. Then I’ll need to make four of them!

Woolly Hats

This is one of the loveliest commissions I’ve had – “Could you paint me a dog on a gold background please?”Dora

I added the flowers because it was for a garden designer who has a beausmall Jack Racoontiful garden.

And on the theme of woolly hats…

This racoon hasn’t quite got the hang of knitting yet, but he’s determined to make a balaclava for his sweetheart Minnie. And I’m sure she’ll love it no matter how wonky it is.
