I made 121 dolls in total, including Rope Doll and Clown Fred, Freda and Gretchen, made for a shop in Hahndorf.
Cork Notice Board and Mini Trains
The E &WS Dept used cork as insulation in some of the pumping stations. An order for cork sheets was filled with a great heap of corks!
Some were used to make a notice board, by cutting then in half and gluing the flat side to a sheet of cork.
I played with the odds and ends left, and with the addition of a pop stick, I made trains which have decorated the Christmas tree ever since.
The original covered matchboxes were getting squashed and tatty, so I started making more durable decorations from fabric.
