RUSH SEAT

Golly, I havent been here for 2 weeks.  It just goes to show when I am being lazy about my mini's what happens.  I have been reading a lot and playing games on the puter, WHICH HAS TO STOP!!! I now have my workshop set up strictly for minis and crafts  and my sewing is in another room. That should help as I can lay out my "stuff" and leave it out if "That Darn Cat" will leave things alone.....


Last night at mini meet we did a rush seat.  A little hard to get at first but really once you "get it"  I believe it is there in the ole grey matter to stay....  Dont forget to click....

Like I said it is easy once you have the pattern fixed in your head...

I bought another seat as now I have the technique fixed in my skull I want to get my tension fixed better.  I was concentrating on the pattern and not my tension, lol....
Now today I am, I am going to take out my John Craig house and start the sucker.....
Til next time,   Mini Blessings and mini hugs,  L J

ps...  have you been over to   aromanticcountryhome  lately,  my BFF Jeannie Girl is showing how she did her barn, look it up it is incredible....

English Rose China

Fun Day is a great name for this NAME event.  There were several tables in one large room doing various projects. A couple of separate rooms doing bigger projects.   Check out the NAME site at  http://www.miniatures.org/newsite/index.php .   There is great info on various miniature subjects and if you are a member you can go into the NAME house and then into the kitchen to view the projects that were offered  that day. This event was hosted by the "Friends Thru Miniatures" NAME club out of Worcester, MA.

To start the day you sign in and get a little miniature keepsake. You then have a continental breakfast and you can view pieces for the silent auction. You have an exhibit room where you can vote on your favorite pieces.  They have door prizes and also lunch.  Wonderful Fun Day...

This is a pic of what I made:

At the top of the pic is the keepsake that we all received.  It came in a plastic champagne glass with tulle and a ribbon around it. I took it out of the glass to take the picture.  It is going into my Tea Room for now for that Special Occasion that the Tea Room sometimes hosts.

Till next time.  Blessings L J
