I have a load of naff pine gateposts I got from Freecycle and made a quick prototype to see whether the wood would be any good. Apart from the eyes and buttons which I need to refine on the rest I reckon they will be OK for a sale I have first week in December. Probably go for 3 - 4

You choose. I have another dozen as well mind. Perhaps we could get VGBear on the task with her new machine.

a seasonal red, of course! Then if there are any left after christmas (perish the thought) he can flog them to Liverpool fans :D:D

Coventry City is my nearest and supported by one of my offspring so Sky Blue it will be.

Better PM me your address then

Seriously the scarf looks good, probably too good for the snowman remember it is only a prototype, don't expect perfection here :D
