Just the weather for staying inside, with the Ȧre on, making miniatures at the kitchen table. Funny how kitchen tables are the best places for creative work. Inside are some projects that lend themselves to this location. Card is such a versatile material. You can make it look like metal, wood, even material. It is such a challenge. A quick trip to Melbourne saw us at the V.A.M.E Dollhouse exhibition. This was a long anticipated show as many Victorians did not attend last year due to Covid19 concerns. Much more relaxed this time around and everyone was spending up large. This event is known for the large number of traders and there were three rooms practically full of trading tables where you could buy manufactured miniature items or raw materials as well as some clever hand crafted work. Somehow my suitcases weighed the same on the way home, regardless of the fact that I have left behind quite a few magazines. The husband just shakes his head. We have a good line up of things of interest in this magazine so get your coffee, get comfy, and have a good read. Not inferring you are non - human at all but this quote is very topical, from Wind in the Willows. All the very best from Jill and Little Mac. ‘No animal, according to the rules of animal - etiquette, is ever expected to do anything strenuous, or heroic, or even moderately active during the off - season of winter’ Kenneth Grahame.
