Day 2 of Back to Miniatures

Last night I went up into my art and crafting studio and pulled out all the things that I have collected for this new shop..... What a mess....

So today my project will be to sort it all out and perhaps even begin to finish up some of the items. I know there are hats to be made, hat boxes to finish, fabric to put on cards and some mannequins to make. That should actually take up the next two days.

Meanwhile though I have to tend to my Real Life antique shop today. Perhaps I can do this between customers....

I have worked on projects like that before. Some of my customers ask me about the minis if I am not working on anything while they are there.

Back to Miniatures

I belong to a fun miniature and doll house group called GSOLFOT.... We have just been issued a challenge to FINISH a project that has been sitting around unfinished for awhile. WELL, I have a LOT of those.

The first one I thought of was a Doll House Dress Shop which I started several years ago. Actually most of the stuff to go inside is in bags here and there.... so I have dug it all out and starting tonight I plan to FINISH it. We shall see if I really do but since I am putting it here perhaps it will encourage me to really do it.
This picture shows how far I have gotten, better than nothing I guess.

This evening I will take a picture of all the "stuff" and add it here.... and then attempt to show the progress.

I am definitely a proud Sockee.

Twinkle Twinkle Little star

Today was my second violin (fiddle) lesson and I played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star... well sort of.... perhaps a bit more practice will be necessary. I remember when we went to see our kids recitals and concerts when they were very young. I am sure they were better..... but practice will make perfect I hope. At least I made some music with my violin.
