No, I have not dropped off the face of the earth, but Real Life has rather taken over the last month or so. Miniatures have had to go on the back burner, so to speak, as there are other things that need to be dealt with pretty much right away.
The other area miniaturists that came to Camp MiniHaHa have decided to get together at least once a month. This month we will be meeting the afternoon of November 11, as almost everyone is able to come that day (some of us are still working full-time). We seem to have picked a name for ourselves - Fredericton Area Miniature Enthusiasts, or FAME for short. One of our members arranged for us to have a display of miniatures at the upcoming model railroad show, December 3, and we will be talking of the best way to use our 2 tables. It is our hope that we may find some other closet miniaturists visiting the show.
I did find a nice, oblong, unbleached-linen colour lamp shade to go on to the camp project; that needs to be finished a.s.a.p., as we would like to exhibit our 5 versions of the camp project at the December show. The Tudor House will also get a little bit of work, as the hearth fires need to be wired in and I'd love to find another way to light the house; currently it runs off 8 small batteries, and those only work for 6 hours or so. There are also some support brackets to place on the house, and the chimney needs bricking.
In the meantime, I am working on a quilted project for a wedding shower, and knitting up a storm in 1/4 human scale, using self-patterning sock yarns - kind of fun.
