Yes: five toy cows, two sheep, a dinosaur, a giraffe, a deer, a crocodile, a hippo, a panther and a pig, three Easter chicks, two pencils, two gekkos, a butterfly, a toy mobile phone, two wooden jigsaw pieces, a tangle of pipecleaners, a baby's hairbrush, an electronic thermometer, four hazelnuts, one parrot finger puppet and a plastic bee had all at one time or another been posted into the small hole at the front of the speaker by small children.
Back to the Oakshott - I had to show you the thread tangle I trimmed away after washing it. The variety of colour illustrates how the shot cottons are woven - as each shot colour has a different thread woven with the red. There must be some sort of textile art I could do with this - it's beautiful really!
