Hello dear readers,
Working with old folks is very rewarding. I now have four ladies who very enthusiastically follow my tutorials and together we managed to create these miniatures within a few meetings.
All the flowers were made by the a/m ladies. I showed them how to stiffen the green crochet thread with glue, cut it into stem lengths and, then glue on the sepals and the flower petals. (see my tutorial here). All the pitchers were made by me recycling advertising posters.
The stand was also made by me. I hope it will attract some of the gentlemen to make the next ones. So far, I supplied all the materials, from my own hoarded piles. An opportunity to get rid of a little trash for a good cause. Three pairs of chopsticks, 6 lollipop sticks.
Our next project is going to be a knitting basket. I made this one as a sample.
June became a difficult month for me. On the 26th of June 2020, I lost my beloved husband, The 4th of June is my birthday. I am not ready yet to celebrate my birthdays without my partner, especially this month that I became 90. Life goes on, I don't feel my age and I can only count my blessings, still on my feet, able to do some volunteer work, surrounded by a loving family and friends. I have a great supply of books to read and miniatures keep me busy and interested. I don't drive a car anymore, twice a week I go to a gym, exercising to keep fit. And yes, although I always found it hard, I still cut and saw wood for my crafts.
I wish you all, my readers and friends, a lovely Sunday with blessings.
