A very Happy New Year to all you miniaturists out there, I hope you had a good Christmas with lots of mini gifts. We had a great time with family who were visiting. The festivities are not over in Spain as we have the Three Kings fiesta this weekend which involves lots of parades on Thursday evening and a Bank Holiday on Friday. The big interest for miniaturists over Christmas here are the traditional Belens in all the shops, Town Halls and in the streets of the cities. These are mini tableaus of the nativity, and must take hours to put together, they are always a joy to see, and people are fascinated by them, especially the mechanised displays.
I had some nice surprises from Gill for Christmas,
Those of you who follow Gill´s blog will know we made Turkish Delight, a lot of Turkish Delight! I made six boxes like this, plus a box of chocolates which is nothing like the one I bought for Gill, there is certainly some improvement needed!
