Hello again!

Hello mini friends,

Well it's been approximately one year since I last posted and why?  Because a certain little girl kept me busy.  Yes was blessed with the chance to take care of my darling granddaughter while her parents were at work and university and we've spent many hours together.  Needless to say I didn't get much mini making done.  I had quite forgotten just how much time babies take up!  Little Phoebe is one year old now and walking round getting into everything but she's ever so cuddly and she means the world to me as does my grandson Bobby who's now six. 

Here's Phoebe and Bobby.

So mini-wise what have I managed to do... well I like a challenge so I was asked to make a luggage trolley so I played about with various materials, plastic, metal, card and so on and the result was this.

I had to make the wheels myself from plastic and wood, they are delicate but do turn and swivel round.

I did start work on my pram kits, well my pushchair kits anyway.  I got quite far but really I needed time to just sit and work on them without stopping and with a small person making lots of visits that didn't happen so I'm afraid they are still sitting half done in a box in the craft room.  I am making four period prams at the moment though.  However I also have a mini keepsake table, some light up lamps and a light up TV on the table with a view to some sofas in the near future.  If only I had a bigger work room I'd be able to spread out, as it stands I keep projects in separate boxes and keep swapping them around lol.

As I say I didn't have much time to myself over the past year but I managed to sneak in a couple of projects and one of them was a little highchair and matching pushchair in lilac.  The highchair has a flip over tray and I used some slightly different materials for this and a new style and I do love the way it turned out, hope you like it too.

Well that's all for now.  I plan on working hard to get myself back on track with my blog, facebook and website while continuing with all the projects I have already on the go so with a bit of luck I'll be back again soon with some new pictures of my latest minis.
Hope to see you soon.
