Fishing boats


Fishing boats, originally uploaded by -syko-.

The boats I made for Janet Bell's gallery are finished. This was a very fun project and I am quite pleased with how they turned out. Might be making more if I hear someone shouting... See close-ups of boats here, here and here.

There was some great news in the paper yesterday, the play The King in Moomin valley at Svenska teatern next Autumn! With the traditional music by Erna Tauro. Very nostalgic, we used to listen to the music when we were kids. I made some muminmamma food the other day, strawberry dessert, it is so easy to make, but it is one of those things that makes me feel like THE moomin mum with all the necessities in her handbag. In real life I am the one that forgets to bring a spare diaper and has to ask a stranger to borrow one. Making a strawberry dessert, or even better, pancakes every once in awhile gives me some mum-points that allows me to go on being silly me most of the days. But as my dear daughter says: "Mum, I like you because you're silly!"

Oh! Your boats are fabulous!!! I always love everything you make but I don't think I've commented before - sorry, I've always been a very impressed lurker!!!

I think our children have to learn to get used to us being "silly mummies" and then they realise they love us for it too!

Another oh, oh!
The boats are fantastic!
And don't worry about being silly. Those are the moments your kids will still love and remember, when older. And being silly keeps us moms young forever ;-)

Your fishing boats are SO cute, I love the details...they would be darling as a mobile as well.

I love the whimsical side of your creations maybe a wonderful "by product" of your silliness!!!!
