The Tea at Yaz’s interior is coming along; the main achievement being that we have finished walls. I wanted a pattern on the walls, so I found this stencil that looks a little like Moroccan tiles and stencilled it over the whole interior. This was the first finished wall…. ….still stencilling…. ….and all done! I…… Continue reading Wall Stencils
As I have limited space to store my miniature sets, I plan to re-make the Diagon Alley shops so they can store their own furniture inside. In the process, they’ll be getting a makeover, and first in line is the old Three Broomsticks. As you can see, its new owners have renamed it to Tea…… Continue reading Project Roundup
“Oh, looks like it’s about to rain. Better get inside before these boxes get wet!” And what do those boxes contain? Pizza! Left to right, we have Hawaiian, vegetarian and supreme pizzas. I’m very happy with all the toppings, as some of them were very fiddly! “No, BB-8, you can’t have pizza.” I may put a…… Continue reading Pizza Party
I saw a tutorial video while browsing YouTube recently and thought, I must do that immediately. So, I did. This spider plant is Sarah’s – hence the colourful pot she decorated herself. I think these monstera leaves might be a little large for the size of pot they’re growing in… Oops! Maybe they have magical…… Continue reading Plant Life
“This is the new playsuit I ordered from my friend at Madam Malkins’!” I wanted to see if I could put pockets in one of Sarah’s playsuits, and Sarah also really liked this fabric. As you can probably see, these pockets aren’t actually visible from the front of the shorts, which I’m very happy…… Continue reading Unboxing
I’ve been busy assembling a variety of different-sized parcel boxes recently, for packages both great and small. The boxes match the postage tube and envelope that I made previously. Maybe we need to open a post office in Diagon Alley…. hmm…… The reason I made these is because Sarah got a delivery today! “When did…… Continue reading You’ve Got Mail
When I mentioned ‘minor adjustments’ I wanted to make to the TARDIS, I meant I wanted to update the pillars, as they were finished in a rush. They’re now significantly taller, and closed at the end, which looks so much better than having them open! These bases also mean this set is as close…… Continue reading Pillars of Completion…?
I’ve been meaning to replace the hood on Sarah’s 13th Doctor coat for a while, as it was originally made with too-small scraps, and I finally got round to it. This new one sits much better over the shoulders, and it fits over her head! I’m also making another birds’ nest in this orange yarn,…… Continue reading Project Roundup
After one year and 170 hexagons, the TARDIS set is, finally, COMPLETE. Just quietly, there are still bits I want to nitpick, but I won’t talk about those because it’s FINISHED and I need a break. ;D Sarah loves it just as much as I do, and she’s very excited to go exploring in it!…… Continue reading Complete TARDIS!
With Christmas comes gifts, and in my case, a lot of those are books. Below are all the books I acquired in the second half of 2019 – thank you! Sarah also received books this year – she’s been wanting to finish reading the Renegades trilogy for a while! Big and small Heartstoppers! She also received…… Continue reading New Year, New Books
