One week...

Only one week until I go to Stockholm for Stockholms miniature show. I'm very exited!! And a bit stressed I wont have the time to finish and make everything I want, but I have a few things to bring, or one suitcase.. =)

I have been packing, deciding prices, making new things and exercise my shoulders =) They don't hurt all day right now and I hope it wont get worse again, but I was very stiff this morning but got better after awhile!

Some photos of my latest work:

I haven't been doing that many dogs, I think they are the hardest thing to do, but I like to be better at it, so I wanted to try some more dogs. This is suppose to be a papillon =) (Don't know the English name for it..)


And then I made a friend for my schnauzer, they seem to really like each other =)
The new one got nose and eyes from polymer clay, and a wire inside the body. I think it's much harder to work around a wire than without, but it's nice to be able to move the legs anyway I want even after I'm done =)

I worked on this cat at the same time as the dog, my first cat with a wire =) This one is already paid for and will be picked up at the fair =)

And then I finally finished a toy racecourse =) I have been thinking of doing one for several years now, but never got to it =) I made it like a jigsaw.
 And finally I made a display for my animals =) Very simple, its made of toilet rolls, white paper, glue and a ribbon to hold everything in place =)

I tried placing some cats on it =) (I forgot the ribbon on this last picture)

If you are able to go to the show in Stockholm, come say hi at mine and Anna's table =)
Take care
Hannah

    1. Thanks Jane! I think I'll take a little miniature-vacation after the fair, but every time I say I'll do that, I start making more minis again after just a few days or less ;) So orders are always welcome =)

  9. Don't allow stress to take hold of you... you're very well prepared for the fair and what you can't finish now you'll get finished for the next one... ;O) Your newest pets look lovely and what a clever way to display them.

    Hugs
