New book

I had a birthday here in May and I got lovely swap-packages and packages from my family =)
I got lots of clay a new phone, some tools and a new book! I love books, and I love Maria Malmströms books!! I have them both now =)
This is her second book; Nukkekoti Väinölän vuosi I wrote about her first book her: http://hannahsminiatyrer.blogspot.se/2013/05/a-new-book.html

I do not understand a word of Finish, but there are lovely pictures and Google translate helped me a bit with things I really wanted to read =)
This book has projects for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Wonderful projects and step-to-step instructions. A book I highly recommend!
I started by trying to make a bikini/underwear =) Looked so easy looking in this book, but it was harder than I thought =) But I tried to make it in plain white at first, to see if it was any idea to try a nicer fabric later =) I hope to make more of these later =)

I'm not finished with this one yet, I'm thinking of adding lace and of course there are parts missing on the top, like the straps =) But I got busy making dragons... ;) I hope to make more things from this wonderful book later! And to finish this set of underwear!

I didn't only get clay from Jane, a couple of days later I got 6 pieces of clay from my mum, and a big white piece of clay from my grandmother and 10 pieces of clay from my brother-in-law. This will keep me busy for a looooooong time =)

Then my father (with family) came with these presents:

Then I got a great new phone from my husband (Nokia Lumia 520) :) The camera seem to be quite good, so I might not need to buy a new camera right now.
I tried making a blogpost from the phone, but I like Internet better on a computer than on my phone... and don't get me started on the writing... But it's a very nice phone and I love it, but I love my computer more... ;) So I'll keep blogging from the computer =)

I'm working a bit on my house again, (hope to post soon again, about my nursery) and some more dragons, and things from the book, yes, I'm still quite busy making minis, and I love it =) But right now I'll go outside to the playground with my daughter. 
Take care
Hannah

  13. Oh it seems as your birthday month is a creative one! Oh and more clay to play with I see wonderful things being mushed and sculpted here ;)

    The photos look fantastic, the phone is a great shot.

    I must say I am a tad jealous of your head magnifying glass, its harder for me to see things and I need to go in that direction soon ;p

    A wonderful month of birthday crafting to you!
    Hugs ~J

    1. Thanks Jane! I feel very creative at the moment =) (Partly because of your swap-package) =) And yes, this year I got to celebrate a lot =)
      These photos is actually taken with my old camera, before I got the phone, but the next post has pictures from the new phone =)
      I have been thinking of getting some kind of magnifier for a long time now, I do see well on a close distant, but not well at all on a far distant =) But I guess a magnifier is always great in this kinda hobby =)

    1. Thanks Jennifer! I have always said I'm easy to please (with gifts that is) I get very happy for anything =) But these truly are great gifts (just like the swap package from you), my family is very supportive of my hobby and everyone knows how much I love miniatures =) I hope I will always love making miniatures and have fun with this for a long time a head =)

  15. Happy Birthday Hannah! You have received wonderful presents! I think the book about miniature is great but I agree with you that seeing the instructions on paper is not the same once you try in real life. I had the same experience hahaha! It's really a challenge! Looking forward to see your ongoing projects ... but do enjoy your time with your daughter, they grow up so fast :)

    1. Thank you Jane! I do that every time, read a book (or a blog) with great instructions thinking, wow, this looks easy, and then I try... Not that easy any more =) I never learn ;)
      My daughter is already 2 years old, I'm amazed every time I look at her, she is getting so big and she can do all sort of things and tell me the most interesting things =) They really grow that quickly!
