First, a warm welcome to my new followers. Thanks for following.
Good news. The seashell decorated box and mirror were found and while I was looking for them, other tiny items appeared as well.
There was no time for making miniatures at home this week. I did manage to work outside with the ladies at the center.
Sorry I am not good at making a video but I'll try to show how I make the kitten
with photos. The technique is more or less like the one for the puppies, watch the link here
I made two versions. The first is one that was impossible for
the ladies to do, much as they tried. The second was less difficult but I had to help
so they could go back home with at least one kitten each.
3 pipe cleaners make 2 kitties.
The legs are bent and twisted and what is left is wrapped around the middle.
I use a tiny bit of white felt for the ears. (This was the part that the ladies couldn't handle.)
Finished kitten with eyes and nose made of Fimo
In the second version, only the head is different, it has pointed, untwisted ears out of the pipe cleaner.
I prefer the kitten with the felt ears.
Lena, a young lady who makes paper wicker miniatures wishes to be introduced. Here are links to her web sites. Here
The renovations of my building is a pain in the neck. The exterior is almost finished but the car parking lots are still full of scaffolding and debris. The garden is in very bad shape and will have to be treated. Now the lobbies on each floor is being renovated, new floor tiles, new doors to hide the pipes. This is how the entrance to my apartment looks and will stay so until Sunday because they don't work on Fridays and Saturdays. The building is only 35 years old. A lot of damage was done because many of the
26 apartments in it were rented. Now most of the apartments are used by their owners who take better care of them.
I have to wear snickers just for going to the elevator.
Hopefully by the end of next week we shall say goodbye to the workers and I'll be able to post photos of the new looking building.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend with blessings.
