Yup....Another boring Wednesday. It seems like I don't get a lot of minis done on Wednesdays. Sooo...
You will be stuck with other things.
First of all, I am still short on space in the workroom. Even with all the shelves that I have. A couple of weeks ago I bought the box that you see in front of the dollhouse shaped bookcase... It is going to be built and stuck under the dollhouse one. You know the old saying, "If you can't build out, build up! That's how it's going to work.
After all, I have to find some place to put the contents of those leftover baskets...
Kumihimo report. I am still at it. Who knew that braiding string could be so entertaining? The these are the ones that I finished this week. They are all done with the basic eight strand braid. They look so different because of the different threads used and the different placement of those threads at the beginning of the braid.
Don't forget to poke the photos.
I decided to make some pendants to hang on the braids yesterday. These are the ones that I worked on. They still need a couple of finishing touches and a finishing coat. I am pretty pleased with them, so far.
Lastly, I will show you three completed ones. From left to right: The first one is a half timber cottage in a watch case. Someone was teaching a Victorian cottage in a watch case some years ago....I refuse to follow the rules. I changed houses after the class.
The second one is one of the pendants from yesterday.(It still needs finish.)
The last one is a pendant watch that I got at Walmart a few years ago. It runs like a champ for a ten dollar watch. The bail(the thingy that attaches the watch to the cord) is also from Walmart. There are ten assorted fancy bails to a package in the jewelry making department for 3.00 a package! Good buy!
Anyway, that's my report for a non mini day....Oh wait. The watch in the last photo qualifies as a mini! See? It's impossible to go a day without mini something.
See you tomorrow.
