Project 2

Hello there...

I have another miniature to share with you today...  I seem to have accumulated lots of photos frames over the years... If I see them in a sale and I think I 'may' use them I buy them. Goodness knows how many there are hidden in cupboards... Anyway this one was put to use. I call it the sewing nook


I made a sort of half room with cardboard from cat food boxes (of which there are plenty) and spent hours making bits of furniture... I had the little sewing machine and scissor... that was the starting point. I cut out windows, shutters and a door and even made a lamp from a TH memo pin and a little vellum. It's amazing what you can find lying around and transform


Making the tiny tassel for my blind was so fiddly, I don't have delicate fingers at all!  But it all worked in the end


I fitted the half room into the frame and cut cardboard to slot into the back of the frame and the top and bottom so it is all neat and secure - I haven't decided whether to light this up yet... I'm still thinking on that one. I've had a few birthday cards to make so I'm chopping and changing from one thing to another and I seem to have had a stream of visitors lately and requests to meet up... My boss from 17 years ago even rang and asked if we could meet up... It's turning into a busy start to the year.

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for your visit

This is amazing, Ros! I love every little detail from the little tassel on the shade to the electrical outlet on the wall! The wall paper is the perfect scale for the room and I love the tile floor. It's such a cheerful sewing room!

Look at the floor! The chair cushions! The view through the windows! Oh, gosh, it goes on and on... shutters, outlet cover, shopping bag, the pretty wallpaper and, ohhhh, just every little detail! You're blowing me away with these miniatures. It's wonderful that you've spent time doing something which must give you such great pleasure.

Totally out my league, but I can certainly enjoy seeing your masterpieces, my friend! This really boggles my mind--so completely realistic! How neat to be busy with fun stuff to start the year!

Wowzer Ros you outdid yourself on the awesome creation!! All the tiny things you did to create this room are wonderful right down to that tiny tassel!!

Darnell said...

You must have nerves of steel and the patience of Job, Ros! This little room is exquisite and the details are mind-blowing. That rack of towels is everything!! I think you could sell doll houses or at least hire out to play with little girls and their doll houses. I'm in awe!! Hugs, Darnell

So so clever Ros and so delicate and unique. You can clearly see you love doing this type of crafting and it must be so good to have some extra time now? Enjoy meeting up with your previous boss and hope you had a lovely birthday on the 12th?
