puzzle ball

have just made this puzzle ball out of scraps of gingham...took me all evening to figure out a pattern and then to make it up, but the result is a very tactile and groovy, squishy ball that children can throw, squash or simply dribble all over...

Oh dear this poor blog is being neglected as the day job, the evening job and then the extra part time job eat up all my time....will try to post some more creative bits the meantime, despite having too much to do, I sneaked off to Oxford with my fabulous BBC chums for some overdue inspiration and enlightenment! Christine took me o the amazing Pitt Rivers Museum, what a treat, and how come I have never seen it before...V&A eat your heart out.....( the reason they are both pulling such funny faces is that it was pouring with rain!!!
