  1. Hand Embroidery

    Hi Lisa, I've actually never used an embroidery machine, I like doing it by hand so much. It's almost meditative in a way, and I feel that the end product has a lot more personality to it. That's just me though! Most embroidery machines I've seen tend to just do it for you if you load a pattern into them, if you wanted to control it yourself I think you'd have to draw the pattern first with washable fabric marker to create a guide for yourself.
  2. What's everyone working on?

    Well this weekend was a mini show in my little corner of the world, and so I went to that with my addiction hobby enabler of a mother on Saturday. I picked up a bunch of nice minis which I'll share just as soon as I can get to a camera. Then on Sunday I made this little guy! I think it's been about 15 years since I last touched polymer clay, so I'm going to mark this as a win. Now to the hard part, baking him!

    Jewelry wire for the trunk/head and a heavy-duty staple for the arms. The pot is a little wooden one that I picked up at my local miniature show this weekend, and then I had fun with polymer clay. Just need to bake him.

    Anna, here's another method that I've seen done for tile/mosaic tabletops. http://1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com/2013/02/1-inch-scale-wicker-table-with-tile-top.html I can't wait to see what method you come up with! I have thought about doing a tile or mosaic table for my greenhouse.

    Wow, long time no post, but I've been working hard on my master's degree so..... Anyway, back to miniatures! This time I'm working on adding walls to the conservatory and framing out the glass panels.
