Last saturday I joined (and enjoyed!!) a class by Wim van Soest at Annelies' place, to make miniature leather shoes. I also like to knit socks; in mini as wel as in real life so I am ready for winter!!
I wish you all a great summer!!
It was hard to resist the brightfull colours of leather he brought ... and because summer is coming soon, I thought I'd better have more than one pair ...
All those things I would like to make; what shall I choose?
Another passion of mine is books! The color of its cover, the way the title is written, the smel of the paper, the promiss what's inside ... no need to tell you I can never walk by a bookstore.
I still have my first book that took me to another world; "Danny, the champion of the world" written by Roald Dahl. I just love to read.
So when I saw the plan of this piece of furniture I had to make it! I made the books from real old books; I went to the second hand shop and took the ones with a nice cover. While making them I was often suprised by the second page of a book; it's a blanc page but often beautiful aged.
Of course this special miniature gets a spot in my dutch canal house.
I am looking forward to the next workshop in two weeks; making shoes!!
I also have a dutch canal house. Because at the end of next summer we are moving to a beautifull new house, I decided it's better to wait with the decoration. But there is already some furniture and meanwhile I also collected some great miniatures.
