They are great Chilli. What's the diameter of those pieces of wood? Are they miniature?

The house/1st Corfe castle ar aboyr 6 inch/15 cm diameter. The Corfe village is about 8 inch/20 cm. The little camper hearts are smaller - about 6 x 7 cm.

The smaller you go, the harder the detail is to do without ending up with one big burnt patch! :lol:

Your work is amazing Chilli!! :shock:
I remember in D.T class a few years ago having to do some wood burning on some sort of spatula thing we had made. All i managed were a few wonky lines, I don't know what I trying to do...Anyway they are fabulous! :D

Now that the hill fog, rain and snow has stopped I can see the hills again, and noticed they have built Clacks along the length that were not there the last time I took a photo.

And in this one below I was not quick enough to catch Hamish the Feegle jumping off the bird. :mrgreen:
