Workshop with non-miniaturists

Hello dear readers,

I'm happy to be back and almost well again.  A small mole with malignant cells was removed from right under my right eye lower lid.  I still have stitches which pull my eye and cause a bit of trouble. This is the reason why I kept away from blogging.  I hope to little by little devote more time now.

Before my surgery, I promised to volunteer at a day care center for elderly people.  They had absolutely no knowledge about miniatures and are very enthusiastic to learn.  We'll begin by making a straw stall.  Most of the ladies know how to crochet and knit which will make it easy to
teach them.  About twice a year the center holds a bazaar and sells what the people make to cover materials costs.  Here is an example of what we are going to create.

We'll be using inexpensive materials only.

The gentlemen will help making the stalls.  I'm sure it's going to be fun for all.  I hope to be able
to show you their progress as it goes, beginning July.

Blessings to all of you.


  1. Hello Drora. I am sorry to hear you were unwell and I am sending lots of 'get well' wishes. What a lovely idea to teach the day care elderly about miniatures. Before long they will all want a doll house x

  2. Sorry to hear about the trouble with your eye Drora, hoping it clears up soon!

    That sounds great working at the day care centre, I bet they'll all be hooked soon enough to be called actual miniaturists :D Your first project with them is a great one too, mini baskets are always a delight.

    Sarah :)

  3. I hope for a quick return of health Drora!

    The stall is a wonderful piece, I love your basket they are always so lovely. How kind of you to volunteer your time and skills to the local elderly folk, I am sure they will love it!
