Just a quick update to show that I am still alive and kicking!
From time to time I try to go back to my hobby, but I am still not always in the right frame of mind after the loss of my husband. However, something is pulling me in the right direction... :-)
After a bit of work on my dollshouse I wanted to go back to my florist and do some work on the upstairs floor. The workbench needed a few drawers or something to hold tools and stuff, so I decided to go for baskets.
As the walls, and therefore the workbench, are not square it takes a bit of extra work, but in reality it is not too difficult. The baskets I am making of balsa (bottom) and paper (woven part). It is a very simple procedure albeit time consuming, but that's miniatures for you.
I haven't finished the work yet, but wanted to show a few pictures of what I am doing at present. The blue basket on the bench is a finished product that I made some time ago. It's also made of paper.
An update will follow when I have finished the baskets. Till then.
