Gertie, as yet, sadly lacks a home, so I have given her a corner of the dresser! I think she has settled in quite well next to the enormous wooden mushrooms lol.
And..... I was really lucky to win an ebay auction last week, so Gertie now has a pet mouse, newly arrived from Liz of Streets Hill Miniatures :0)
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and for those of us with children on school holidays, I hope you all coping !!! lol My lovely monsters are down the allotment today with my dad, so that I can get on with tidying up after our mamoth decorating stint over the last week or so. In between working, we have re-jigged the ground floor of our house and our dining room is now my workroom with lots of space for displaying our current projects and our living room is now a living/dining room! I'm surprised how well it's worked actually, thank heavens for large 1960's box style rooms!
This is one side of my new 'work room'. We found some wonderful 'Tree' wallpaper for a feature wall and it is the perfect backdrop for the Wizard and Wands Bookstore. I have a nice high chair, perfect for sitting on whilst I work on the library room and the lovely wicker basket on the chair holds my aida canvases for my mini stitchings. I now have loads of floor and cupboard space and my dresser cupboards are filled with easy reach craft supplies.
My little shop 'Woolembees' sits on the dresser and the light is great here, so it will be perfect for photographing any new stitchings 'in the shop'! On the other side of the room is a sideboard where I will be putting either a house on or the Mandrake House and a walled garden. And... the best thing about my new work room? It's right next to the kitchen, easy reach to the kettle... ;0)
Even Pumpkin the cat has a treat in here... a new scratching post...
Hopefully, all will get finished today and I will be back mini making this week,
Have a great day,
