Hello dear readers,
All public festivities for our one and only religious fun holiday, Purim, have been canceled on account of the coronavirus. It is an especially sad situation for the kids who wanted to show their masquerades outdoors.
I am the only close relative allowed to visit my husband at the nursing home for fear of this virus, and as my daughters cannot replace me it means even less time for minis.
Today, there was a special Purim party at my husband's ward but no outside visitor or close relative was allowed to come, only the medical staff and help.
Not certain about tomorrow. Other institutes like this one totally forbid outside visitors.
For the time being, we are officially isolated. Anyone entering Israel will be quarantined for 14 days no matter which country he comes from.
I am very slow with the Jeweler's Facade project although the main structure is completed.
The shelves are finished and installed. The ceiling is finished and later on, I'll add shingles.
Inside of the box with dividers glued and fixed in place.
3 large bamboo skewers cut to size cover the open side of the 1/4 part of the backgammon wooden box.
Temporary cover template to be replaced with a fixed cardboard one.
There have been other miniatures to make in-between. More nutshell and flower bouquets gifts for Purim. I couldn't take photos. My I-phone4 battery, after seven years of excellent service, went dead on me. I preferred to buy a new phone which I just received, a very expensive I-phone11, much smarter than I am, and slowly getting acquainted with it. Here are photos of a few gifts, meant to be given away today.
here is a great tutorial for a modern kitchen faucet and sink.
I wish you a healthy rest of the week free of viruses and blessings only.
