not really ... just some upside down duplo, and some glo sticks left over from our floodlit walk at abbotsbury gardens...
and daisy and matty dont go to preshool, either, i was just refering to their age bracket ...
i took these pictures in the natural light hoping to capture some of that glow. i love the busy hands. daisy and matty put this construction in a nappy box and you could really appreciate the glo sticks ...

steve and i have been building the NXT alpha rex over a series of evenings. i love putting together lego. steve is good at finding the bits, and then likes doing robot programming on his laptop.
the robot can almost walk, with just legs like this.
the robot still needs arms and his head (twin sonic sensors), so that will keep us happy for a few evenings yet ...

here are some WIP pics for one of the projects -
a quick sketch to help me place signiicant features ...
this pattern piece is a strange shape, and here i have fitted a loop of faux suede
fabric with two strong D-rings ...
i have been very carefully scissor sculpting an area in the middle of this piece of fur ... it is secured inside a large embroidery hoop.
these look like ears, of course !
and here are the inside and outsides of the back of this piece ...
what am i making?
