Hello dear readers
Entirely unexpected, with no previous hint, a surprise parcel for Christmas, sent from Spain to Israel over two months ago ARRIVED! Dear Pilar sent me the most precious miniatures crafted with her magical fingers. This was a lovely and very generous gesture that moved me to tears.
All the books are readable in spite of their tiny size. Pilar's work is totally amazing. I already have plans for the books. They will be in my future book-nooks and remain in my family where I can see them displayed all the time.
THANK YOU, DEAR PILAR, from the bottom of my heart, for your stunning gifts, and especially and more importantly for your friendship.💓
I don't have enough words to express my emotions to let all of you how lucky I am to have blog friends. Every comment on my posts gives me all the encouragement needed to keep going on. I don't feel lonely, and my days are full. I know I have friends who care about me.
At present, I am working on a new book-nook, preparing windows, doors, and other elements. I have not yet taken photos. Later on, when the walls will be cut, I'll post pictures.
I'm also working on some small gifts. They have to be ready for Pessah and Easter. I started with the laser-cut wood slices from Aliexpress. There were 18 pieces from which I already used a few. From the rest, I want to make little dollhouses for the dollhouse. All I use for wood cutting is a hand saw. I'm getting older and I find cutting wood much more difficult than before. I'll just have to buy an electrical table saw.
What a messy work table and I have to clear all these several times a day as it's also my kitchen table.
I wish you a lovely, relaxing weekend with blessings. Stay safe!
While there is very little progress with my second book nook project and It's intended to be a surprise birthday gift in July not much will be posted about it until after it gets to its receiver. Still, in between, I'm working with craft wood and my faithful saw and miter box.
Pinocchio's father Jeppetto's table was probably much tidier than mine. In the end, there'll be no escape, I'll have to buy an electrical table saw. I'm getting older and my carpeting skills clumsier.
I'm working on the house-shaped laser-cut wood slices which I bought from Aliexpress. Some I already finished and posted about previously/ My intention is to finish all the 18.
