However, if you followed my moan about the P.O. and the unacceptable delay in a box of characters arriving at their a new home in Australia in my last blog, I can report they've arrived! Huge thanks to Susan Monro for letting me know so swiftly and for the wonderful photographs.
Susan sent a number of pictures which she has also posted on her blog together with a witty and wonderful tarradiddle about their adventures. I won't attempt to compete but suggest you whizz over to her Blog, and while you're there check out her exquisite miniature crochet work.
Here's just one featuring the horse-mad teenage girl I made for her. I love the stable setting - and know that all the characters in her now large 'family' look equally at home. Thanks Susan.
I thoroughly enjoyed my jaunt to Miniatura on Sunday - it seemed much quieter than usual. As always, there were wonderful original miniatures to drool over and it's a terrific opportunity to see quality artisans as well as catch up with chums. I did have a little spend and amongst other bits and bobs, brought home two beautiful little bears by Shoebutton Bears.
I've been saying for....ages....that I would update the 1/48th scale Illustrated List which is on the side bar, just over there >>>>> Finally I've done it!!!!
Weather update.....rushed back from a day or two away to an Urgent Frost Warning from the T.V. weather men. Grabbed all the unripe green tomatoes, picked all the annual flowers and dragged inside fuschia and geraniums.
Outcome - no frost at all, but huge vases of 'mixed' flowers to cheer us up as it seems to have rained ever since!!
Thanks for looking, and a warm welcome to New Followers.
