Pull Horse

Thank you all for nice warm welcoming words on my last post and the compliments, they warmed my heart.

On our weekly mum-daughter night we made a little pull horse .
The horse is from a broken plastic carousel(Christams ornament).
We painted it with acrylic paint and now it looks like wood.
We used a little woodsy and drill a hole in it , painted it and beads for weels glued to a piece of coctail stick, a piece of string with a little bead is tied on the woodsy and the toy was ready.

My mum's toy is the one with the red weels and mine has purple weels.

I am looking forwar to Saterday, my mum and i go to shop for miniatures at a miniature fair  poppenhuizenbeurs in Rijswijk

Sorry and embroidery

Sorry  for not posting here for more then 3 months.
Sometimes real life is busy and there is hardly time for making mini's.
In the summer i was a lot outside in the sun, with a piece of needlework or crochet work in miniature but also big. We also made a lot of trips.
I finaly finished these two embroidery pieces for my mum.
They are a lot bigger on the photo the in real.
The left one is only 2,5 cm tall.
On these big photo's it looks like the frames are not connected in the corners but in real you don't see that.
I finally finished the rooftiles on my big dollshouse too.
I am now finally working on the give-away i promised earlier.
I welcome all the new followers and a big hug to all my blogfriend, i did not forget you....

I AM BACK
in 
Blogland!

We made some garlic.
 Together more then 100 cloves.
We made some extra for our dollshouses.
Here is how it is on a string hanging on our carts
 The grapes we made last week together.
I made some watermelons too for my mum and me.
 Our fruitcarts are almost finnished.
 I still want to make patatoes, i have a little spot for that left and ofcourse a lady who sells the fruit.
Next week we are going to make paper bags together.
And i want to paint my scale, my mother love the original color so she glued it already to the cart. 
My mum was not happy with the color of her pears, so she painted them.
Oh how i love these evenings with my mum and i am so happy we have the same hobby.
