Hi Everyone. As usual time is running away with me, where does it go?I am busy preparing for visitors, and all the usual real life things.
I have also been having a major sort out of my store room. This has taken weeks, mainly because of all the rain we have had recently. I really needed to get everything out, get some shelving up and have a major tidy out of all the boxes and stuff I did not know what to do with.
Anyway, it is done now, and everything is in transparent boxes so I know exactly what I have got. For a miniature hobby all the stuff takes a very large amount of room.
My latest miniature project has been to make a needle felted kitten. Some of you will remember Gill and I having a go a few months back. Then it took us all day to make a cat, this time it took me about 20 hours!
I just could not get the face right. It is OK, but not perfect. Perhaps in true scale it is a lot easier, certainly in miniature it is not. I can only admire those who do this for a living, they are either a lot quicker than me, or living in abject poverty! If you look at http://www.etsy.com/shop/BinhMyPet on Etsy she makes some beautiful cats at a more than reasonable price. Here are some photos of my effort, they do not compare but I like him.
The latest project is to finish some things I found while I was sorting out, these are mostly sewing. Does anyone else start several cross stitch projects at once? I have finished one cushion, and almost finished the second, only 4 more projects to go. Then there is the scrap booking kit, not to mention stuff for Christmas. I am supposed to be starting a doll next week with my sister when she visits.
Still, life would be less rich without hobbies!
Until next time
