Mini books by Eva

As a proud Canadian royalist, I was up this morning watching clips of the Royal wedding online -- I found it surprisingly moving and very, very beautiful.  Loved the spring-green trees in the Abbey!

Here's a photo of the whole Kitchen wing this morning:

 And here are some tiny books Eva worked on yesterday, from several of the book kits I have lying around.  She is amazing with small things -- the smaller the better as far as she's concerned :)  I gave her a kit for a 1:144 scale dolls house and she did a great job on it -- now she'll make furniture for it!

The ones in the back are from the Dutch shop Silly Sisters -- their book kit which makes over 60 attractive, non opening books.  These have been great for the kids.

The one in the front, with the pages  (Eva did such a lovely, precise job on this one, which is very fiddly) is from the first kit of antique books by Paper Minis -- they have lots of lovely things for sale, including stamp albums!

I'm alive! And Knitwits worked on the Castle today ...


First of all, sorry I've been MIA for most of this year so far.  It's been a good time in my life, but I'm just very, very busy in other areas.  I haven't had a moment to do minis for ages and ages.

But today, at Knitwits, Evangelista insisted that we get out the Castle kitchen and do a little work, and I was so happy! 

Evangelista scumbled the walls of the upper floor of the Kitchen wing with paint so we can go ahead and put in the shutters for the servants rooms.

Tiddles took everything out of the Kitchen, cleaned up and rearranged everything so it looks lovely and tidy.  We also made a list of food we want to make for the Kitchen.  Tiddles took these photos :)

By the way, David, my Mum and I are leaving for England in a week!  We're staying for two weeks in Staithes and I've got planned dolls house shop visits to Chesterfield and York.  I'll be blogging up a storm ...

Okay, I'm off to catch up with everyone else's work :)
