My New Blogs

Hello everyone, hope you all had a lovely, lovely Christmas.  It’s almost New Year!  I wonder how you are all going to celebrate.  I shall be popping out for a meal with friends rather early in the evening and then off home to celebrate with the next door neighbours who are having a party. 

Well, with the New Year looming and all things new on the horizon I decided to split up my blogs, I’m part way through moving my thatch cottage blog to its own spot and I’ve begun a blog on my new caravan that  good old Santa brought me.  I’ll be doing a giveaway to promote them both very soon so keep an eye out. 

On the cards for this coming year so far are a couple of pram orders (as always lol) a couple of retro record players and a tutorial for a garden table and chairs set that will be published in Dolls House & Miniature Scene. 

Do check out my other blogs, I’ve included a nice set of pictures showing you how to make a little comfy arm chair on my cottage blog and I shall be adding lots of pictures of all the projects I work on while bringing my caravan to life.  Future caravan projects include decorating the caravan, a miniature wind chime, tiny candles in lanterns, upholstering the furniture, making card buckets & jugs and many other mini projects.  

Well that’s all for this year, have a lovely time this evening, keep safe and have a very 
Happy New Year!  xx

Wheeled minis and something to look forward to...

Season’s greetings!

Hello friends, here’s a quick update...  All my orders for this year are now complete! Yay! So now I’m busy cleaning my house and putting up decorations etc.  I thought you might want to see the little wheelchair I made in its propper place with its new owner so I’ve added this link for you so you can pop along to Susan’s blog and read all about it.  Also, here is a link to Robin’s blog, she made little mini Graff who seems delighted to finally be united with his very own set of wheels.  It’s always great to see your creations in the settings of their new owners and the pictures speak for themselves.

Next I thought I’d just pop up a picture of another order I made.  This is a little rear facing pushchair with playbeads and matching apron, made in a shabby chic print and contrasting muted green fabric.  It would seem that many people have spotted Jackie's pram in the same fabric and they often comment on how lovely the colours are.  So hats off to Jackie for her impeccable taste :)

Lastly another little shopping trolley, made for the same customer above.  This time a little traditional tartan number. 

Next year I have several orders for prams, a couple or orders for record players and I'm doing a tuturial for DHMS for a little bistro set so I’m already busy planning my year ahead.

Oh and possibly the most exciting news is this... My lovely, lovely friend Virginia, who knits mini, teeny, tiny outfits and the most gorgeous bootees you have ever seen has asked me if I’d like to have her as my advent-swap partner next Christmas. I jumped at the chance of course and I have a whole year to gather ideas for the 24 tiny gifts I will exchange with her.  I’m absolutely thrilled at the idea!  Here are a couple of pictures of mini cardigans that Virginia knitted for me a while back...

Well I’ve a day of cleaning ahead if I’m going to be ready in time for Christmas so I’d better get on.
Talk soon
Big mini hugs
