Say Hello to Dougal!

It's a while since I made a a 1/12th scale Scot - say hello to Dougal - he looks the strong quiet type I think.

I did enjoy making this character although a  kilt, sporran and bagpipes are a bit of a challenge to make look convincing and more important, acceptable to those of you who know far more about the correct details than me. Anyway I think I'm happy with him and imagine he's off for a last walk in the heather before he moves to a new home.

The forecast for snow is dire...and it's Miniatura this weekend!! I'm hoping to go as a visitor but expect friends who are standholders will be watching the weather maps even more anxiously. I do hope you all have a very successful fair and that everyone manages to get there.

Celia Thomas and I, wearing our Nostalgia in Miniature hats, have been busy putting together all the kits for our next workshop on 7th April at lovely Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire. Underneath the Old Arbour is a pretty, yet still gently faded, nostalgic scene and we're looking forward to it very much -  seeing old friends adding to their little group of cottage gardens and meeting new ones.

We have already started to take bookings for the autumn workshop -  Let's All  Play in the Little Back Garden - which will be different again and very enjoyable. Learn some new skills with a friendly group in lovely surroundings and go home with a beautiful, unique garden scene in 1/12th or 1/24th scale, and be inspired to create in miniauture even more,  for yourself.  For all the details and a Downloadable Booking Form click HERE

I've a busy week coming up - haven't we all - so I thought I'd nip in now to wish all my Followers and those of you who pop in every now and again a Very Happy Easter.
Thank you for looking.

Aw, your little scot is AbFab!! His pipes are pretty darned good, sez me who has been puzzling over miniature bagpipes for a while. You amaze me every time I see your little people!

Take care in the current weather conditions.

Your new characters is impressively well done. I can almost hear the bagpipes when I look at him.
I hope you get some good days, both as buyer and seller.
Happy Easter.

I just love Dougal, and as a Scot I can say that he definitely passes muster.... the bagpipes look wonderful!

I just love your little Dougal and think he makes a lovely little man with his bagpipes! I can sympathize with the weather - we in Canada are buring in it - snow that is!
