A garden for Solly and Kitty (Part 4)

 Hello dear readers,

It doesn't show much progress, but considering the Pessah holiday, family visits, and an important birthday (Dana, one of my five beloved great-granddaughters turned 17), there was not much time left for crafting.

The fence had a makeover.  It is now painted white with three taller strips of wood, two to accommodate birdhouses and one ready for ivy climbers.  The third birdhouse just sits on the fence itself.  (I got carried away and made several shapes of birdhouses from scratch.  The shrubs are awaiting flowers and a little blossoming tree is also almost finished and ready to be planted.  

Making the bench was very easy. I just glued together two square identical laser woodcuts. When dry I glued these to a piece of 1.3 cm thick, 2.5 cm wide long piece of wood.  The only hard work was cutting it to fit the size of the laser cuts. The sides too are triangle laser cuts which were in my stash. For the legs, I used 4 little wooden beads. Now I have to make a flat padded cushion for the seat so my witch Baalatova will approve it.

Here is a photo of the tree.  The flowers are just for demonstration.  They seem too large for the proportion of the garden which is about 1/24" scale.

Well, that's all for now.  I have to get myself ready to go out and celebrate with my family our 75th Independence Day. 

Happy Independence Day Israel to all my local friends with blessings to all my dear readers!
