Miniature #4

It’s been a whole 3 months since I finished my French Country Windmill and I can’t take it any longer. I have been wandering around the house, pulling out other discarded crafts to occupy my mind, and it’s just not enough. Nothing else offers me the daily creative challenge I need like building a miniature. I have tried needle felting to make my own creatures to populate my houses. Here is Arnold, my French mouse, coming home with a single rose for his soul mate. I just haven’t made her yet, but I will……He’s not exactly how I wanted him to turn out, but he will do for now. Practice makes cuter mice…..

So, my new project is The Baslow Ranch from Greenleaf. This will be another structure I can customize and keep casual. It will mimic a hunting & fishing getaway in the Great NW. My grown son, Greg, will be collaborating with me on this remotely from Ohio. Right now I’ve punched everything out and sanded. I’m still in my design stage of making diagrams of alternative layouts so I can make any adjustments at this stage before I start gluing walls together. I also make initial materials decisions at this time to make sure I get the look I’m going for.So, this should occupy me for awhile. I’ll be posting my progress as I go along. Until next time…..

  1. Arnold is adorable.
    I guess nobody warned you that there is no cure for the miniature addiction. 😉 It’s nice to have you back! I know it is impossible to stay away for long. I look forward to seeing what you do with the Baslow Ranch.


    1. Oh, I’ve known I’m addicted, I was just trying to moderate. My credit card still isn’t paid down, but this ranch has been calling to me from under the guest bed. I think this will satisfy my creative side for months to come. I like to savor the experience. Needle felting, however, is more of a struggle than a joy right now, but I will persevere. Arnold needs to hand that rose over to an equally adorable mademoiselle!
