A Wonderful Day

A few months ago I visited a local real life Dolls House Club.  I have been a member of a couple of online miniature groups and find they are lovely for learning new things and chatting to people who share the same hobby.  All of the women in the real life club and online clubs are so talented and can make such wonderful minis.  Today  the real life dolls house club had booked a workshop by Nicky Bott.

For those of you who know me, my hobbies and miniatures have had to take a back seat recently because my hubby lost his job and we are all busy applying for work left, right and centre all to no avail so far.

Today has been just the tonic I needed to lift my spirits and renew my enthusiasm for something fun to learn and do.  Today  Nicky Bott showed us how to make a 1/12th scale character male.  And here is my character male

We all had great fun and I managed to learn so much and completed him in one day.  He may not be the prettiest doll but, I am very attached to him.

All I need to do now is make him some clothes.  I was going to wig him and make him into a wizard but he doesnt look like a wizard to me now he is completed....  I think I may have to make another one to make into a wizard lol

Hi Again

Hi Everyone,  I hope you are all well.  Apologies I am not about so much just lately but normal service is returning over the next couple of days.

I am hoping to start dressing one of my dolls house dolls this week.  I have been thinking what style she needs to wear. And I am not sure what fabric I have that will be suitable to use.  Also, she has a 'look' about her that is making it difficult to decide, especially as my dolls house is modern and the 12th scale pet shop is also more modern.  Decisions, decisions.

I will post some pictures this week of what I am up to.
