Autumn 2022 -Hebre New Year 5783

Hello dear friends,

We here in Israel have been celebrating our Hebrew New Year 5783.  It's a religious 2-day holiday that always falls in autumn.

I made the little autumn scene for my family and local friends. 

All the outdoor pieces of furniture, including the wooden crate, were created and put together by me. The pumpkin pie and leave-cookies are gifts from a fellow miniaturist who sadly no longer keeps her blog.  The pumpkins too are gifts from blog friends. The flower vase is bought and filled with sunflowers quickly made by me for this scene.

Kitty's home has not been entirely neglected.  All the furniture pieces are completed waiting only to be decorated with ornaments and fixed permanently in place.

Chair made from barbecue matches and three curved toothpick-tops. (fiddly work)

The shelves unit is made from popsicle sticks and a piece of Balza wood.

For the table, I glued a wooden disc on top of a Domino pizza protector.

The chair seat is woven with crochet yarn.

Happy New Year to all my Jewish friends and Happy Autumn to all my dear readers!

A loft bed for Kitty

Hello dear readers 

After many trials and errors, the loft bed is completed.  To make it stay up, I had to build a sturdy shelves unit and ladder.  This involved a long job of hand sawing and sanding which I absolutely don't love.

There is now very little space for furniture but luckily Kitty doesn't need a kitchen, she has Baalatova to provide her and Solly with food.  There will also be a little garden where she can play and roam around.

This was one of the trials, unsuccessful attempts to install the loft bed.

Here is my last and safe fixture of the loft bed.  It leaves very little space for the indoor decoration but will have to do.

Needs decorative rose-colored cushions.

What's left now is to create small cushions, a small chair, and a table as well as wall decorations and a pot of flowers.

Hopefully I"ll be able to finish all these items soon.  My fingers already ache to make the garden and have this project complete for Halloween.

I wish you all a pleasant weekend with blessings.
