This 1/12th District Nurse has now made her way to her new home - fun to make as I've only made 'her' in 1/24th scale before.
In 1/24th scale, 'Miss Reid' from the 'Miss Reid' books has now moved from Thame and is visiting her friend 'Miss Clare' in her lovely cottage. You might remember I made that lady earlier in the year and also created flower and vegetable gardens for her.
Many thanks to Shirley for allowing me to use her new pictures of the pair of them enjoying the sun. I love that the garden has now acquired a friendly cat and a rather nice picket fence which ties it all together. Thanks for the fun Shirley!
I took the opportunity as Miss Reid needed a hat and Miss Clare extra furniture, to catch up with making some extra items for stock. All the items in the following pictures are in 1/24th scale and for sale - please contact me if you'd like further information.
We've had such fun with a very special little visitor since the last blog - lots of fun creating 'stables' for plastic ponies and painting great pictures - and also some 'trips'. If you live in our (Thame, Oxfordshire) area and have young children to entertain I can thoroughly recommend a jaunt to Oxford and the fabulous Natural History Museum (Pitt Rivers) which features lots of dinosaurs!! Very child friendly.
The stone gargoyles on the colleges also proved a great fascination!
In the opposite direct we headed for Beaconsfield (Bucks.) and Beconscot Model Village - created originally in the 1930s and frozen in that time - have to say it enchanted us big people just as much. As miniaturists it was also fascinating for us to peep through the workshop windows and look at the techniques being used as they work on new installations on the ground in the village itself.

Celia and I are looking forward to the third and last workshop for this year in September, after which we'll concentrate on planning for 2016!! Meanwhile....back to kits.....
Have a lovely summer whatever you're doing, and thanks for popping in.
