Mondodifavola: { Giveaway time ! }

Mondodifavola: { Giveaway time ! } enter this great give a way,

I am making progress

Hi All

Well mum goes to the hospital tomorrow to get the results of her lung biopsy, we should know what they are going to do and what the prognosis is, I am praying hard for some good news.

Anyway lets talk about my project, I have done a lot more to the stable,I made some shelves for the tack room and added some bits to it, I was surprised when I opened my my box of stash I had collected for this project. I have so much, more than enough for the shop that is going to go along side the stable, there will be a surprise for you as well, I have an idea for the shop, it will specialise in something special, I just have to work out how to do it, I know I never make things easy for myself, but I love a challenge and buggar is this one going to be a challenge.

Well I have bored you enough, have a look at my photos and see what I have done

back to doing miniatures

Hi All

My mum is still waiting for treatment to start, she had a biopsy last week and then hopefully we will know what they are going to do.

I will admit I have been very depressed, which is unlike me, but this time when normally I can switch off and get on with other stuff, for my own sake I had to get back to doing my miniatures, so I have decided to do something that I had an idea for some time ago,

I want to do a stable with a small tack room, a small area for the horses and a shop that sells all kinds of horsey stuff, but also specialises in  Arabian horse costumes, there I have told you now, so I must do it. I have not made it easy for myself, I cannot find much in miniature in this subject, so I am using my imagination  and hopefully it will work.

So let me show you what I have been up to.

this is what I had to make into my stables

one of my horses, I made a dividing wall, the smaller side will be a little tack room

using egg cartons for the outer stone work

I used lolly sticks for the floor

base colour for the stone work 
I used mount board for the roof, cut and shaped to look like tiles and then base colour added
saddle holder and saddle

2 saddle holder made from balsa wood

Well there it is I have started.
