I am definitely not going to get a lot of mini-ing done today. Maybe towards night I will get to do something, but that will be too late to write about.
The only thing that I have done that even resembles a miniature attempt is this bowl of make up tray liners. They are from the kits that I purchased at the after Christmas sale at Walmart.
I do this every year. I wait until they are 75% off and then grab a few make up kits that have metal liners in the bottom.
These will serve as trays, cake pans and other tins in mini and they will come in handy for making cabochons for bead work.
First I dig the make up out of the trays and pry them out of the trays. Then I soak them. As you can see, the water is turning kind of pink. That is from the mixture of half water,half white vinegar and a bit of dish detergent. This will serve to clean the last residue out, so that they will be ready for other uses.
Tessie was right there counting and making plans... This one is from last year's haul. These were particularly useful as cinnamon roll pans.
Tessie baked these this morning. Too bad she can't make larger, people sized ones.
When I came in here to write the entry a little while ago, Tessie dragged in the chase lounge and my best afghan and made herself comfortable. I wondered what she was up to.
She sat there for a few minutes all cozy and warm. Then suddenly, there was Zar. It seems that she was too warm with the afghan over her lap. She was afraid to take it off because she knew that I would confiscate it....It is mine, after all.
Her solution to the dilemma was to spell Zar into waving her new fan whilst she sat there. I didn't say it was a rational solution.....
I just heard her, in her best uppity voice, say to Zar, "Go fetch me a cinnamon roll, if you please! And then continue fanning a little more to your left.... A little faster. It is sooooo hot in here."
I can't take any more of this. I know I'm not getting my afghan back and I certainly am not getting the housework done listening to this nonsense. I am going back to work.
See you tomorrow.
