Yesterday I escaped from the house where I have been basically house bound since Christmas - we were feeling much better than we were and decided to attend our monthly Miniatures Club. I'm glad we did, what do they say? a change is as good as a rest! We are making room scenes utalising a two bottle wooden wine gift case from our local supermarkets. We have all choosen a topic or shop from the Victorian ere and will display them in an exhibition at Easter. Everyone has their own ideas around the themes and it will be interesting to see all the interpretations. We were busy swapping materials from pieces of linen for flour sacks to fine wire for jewellery making. Being 1/12th scale you don't need 'large' bits (g).
Dh has been busy using the moulds that santa brought him and has made various figures, passing them to the 'costume department' for dressing! One scene will be a maypole feature so he will be busy making the children for the lady to dress, plus getting on with his own theme. At least Easter is late this year, so that gives us all a little time.
