Mostly a blog about my miniatures. I sometimes get sidetracked.
Don't forget to poke the photos to enlarge!

A Different Kind of Mini...
I am a very bad mini builder today. I am a very good entertainer of miniature people though. I spent the morning over at April's. This is the mini person that I was entertaining. Actually he was doing more of the entertaining than I was.
I am still struggling to get this new system to work. I can't seem to get the photos to go where I want them and the alignment of the paragraphs keeps jumping to the center. Grrrrr.....
I do wish that I could find a good page that explains how to use the new system. Right now, I am frustrated and feeling very unintelligent.
Every time I try for a break in the paragraphs, it sends me down to the bottom of the photo that I just added and I am left with a big gap between them.
And everything keeps jumping to the center, even though I put it to the left. This is the last thing that I am going to say about this new system, but if the blog looks strange, please forgive me.
I managed to do a bit of shopping on the way home....I spent a whole dollar on this at one of the thrift shops in the area.
That is all silk that you see. The outside is a tightly woven very thin dull blue silk. The lining is gold China silk. It must have been pretty expensive when it was new. The tailoring is beautiful....I got it for 1.00. The shop is getting ready to close for the summer months... Needless to say, I will be using some blue and gold in some of my minis.
I don't think that you really want to see what is happening with the weaver's workshop.....Promise not to look at the last photo! I have to get back to work tomorrow. Double time.
