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

OK....Let's Get Back to Minis....
Today, I am recovering from the Birthday/New Year's Day festivities.
We recovered by going to see Jack Reacher, this morning...It was pretty good if you haven't read the books and know that Jack Reacher is a man that measures 6'5" tall....Tom Cruise is 5'7"! Doesn't quite measure up. Pardon the pun. I just pretended that it was some other character and it came out OK.
I gave April a 1927 Better Homes and Gardens magazine that we couldn't decide if she bought and lent it to me or if I bought it. All I really wanted was this one Armstrong floors ad. It was what I had in mind for the Clockwork cottage Kitchen. Remember that one? It's been a while...It may have to come down off of it's shelf one of these days....
None of us got anything done. Amare is all the entertainment we need. He kept us busy most of the afternoon. Really fun to be around now.
I think he may be a budding miniaturist. He is very good around the minis, but I have a corner room box sitting down where he can see and touch it....He kept going over to it and trying to figure out why he couldn't get his fingers to go through the Plexiglas to touch the furniture.
Yup....Miniaturist in the making.
I had to record the first sunset of 2013. This is one of the reasons for living in Arizona. This was right outside the back door.
Yes, I know I am rambling. I hoped you wouldn't notice.
I got all of the strap work between the squares done....Except for 26 stitches. I ran out of thread! 26 stitches!
I went to Walmart this morning and got a skein of 644 and I am back in business....All 26 stitches. Now you see why I never run out of thread...The three boxes are filled because every skein is about 26 stitches short...
See? I am working on it diligently...Kind of....Almost...Maybe tomorrow.
