Mini Meet

Last night Barbara came up with such a neat lamp.  It was so much fun and we were almost at 100% membership which was even more fun having us all together.  Barbara makes the most beautiful chandeliers out of jewelry findings and this lamp she designed for the club. She came armed with tons of findings for us to pick from for our lamps. I will try to have pics next meeting of the other lamps as we ran late and the others were not done as yet, so hopefully they will bring to share their finished products.  We used zap a gap and white glue to get a good grip on these metal parts. Believe me they won't come undone....    Here is mine:

I love how it fits in my Victorian house....

These are Barbara's lamps...
I love the bugle beads at the base of the lamp shades, but I wasn't going there - lol... They are suppose to dangle so you don't glue them on and they keep falling off every time you move the lamp.  You could glue them but that would ruin the effect so I elected not to put them on.

A very nice colonial lamp.

Little Tree

I took a picture to send to the mini person who sold me all the mini knitting supplies to let her know that I am thoughoughly enjoying my newest pastime and these supplies wont sit around. I will use them....
I did try a tree Christmas Stocking

This is the most tedious mini thing I have ever attempted but I will get it to where I want.  Smaller and neater....

 While browsing thru some patterns I came across this pattern and thought "Oh,  why not try it"  I will leave the dress back till tomorrow.   After several tries to do the Faire Isle knit sock (which you can kind of see beneath the thread in the picture below)..... I said "AHHHHHHHHHHHHH".....  Guess I had better practice on a plain one first.....  This is not easy!!!  For me anyway.......  This will take a lot of practice to do a FairIsle, little tree or the zigzag pattern in the directions.   But even the plain one  is cute as cute can be........

The stocking is knit flat, not in the round.  Those red stitches on each end is the heal when stitched up.

OH MY GOODNESS............

I don't care how long it took me, it was worth it, lol..........

New Followers and Newest Knit

A wonderful warm welcome to all my newest followers.  I am trying to get back to all new and old for visits.  I love going to your great blogs and seeing what you have created for the little world we all so enjoy.

Here is my next attempt to knit. This is going to take a while to finish.  This will be for a teen dollhouse doll.  I am not going to show the pic of what the finished product will finally look like.  I want to string you along....  Get it, string, along...

Till next time, Mini Hugs, LJ

Pram Cover

I am on a roll.  I just love knitting these little things.  This is a pram blanket that I devised myself.  It may be a little early yet to do this but I wanted to try it without a pattern.  Fun Fun Fun...This needs to be blocked yet.

Off to look at patterns, lol....
