The wait is over!! The Hatters Magnificent New Addition
So sorry to dear Susan http://tabithacorsica.blogspot.com/ for the delay in this posting ( and also to Victoria and Lorraine , Tara and Nikki, who I also received fab minis from last week and I haven't got round to posting pics of) . Please all be assured I was thrilled with my new miniatures and promise to show them off soon. This week has been one of those weeks, Ive had a nasty migraine for nearly 3 days, just easing today as I couldn't look at light let alone a PC screen til now. Then Ive had several hospital visits in the last few months which I wont bore you with but seems Im going to have to make a decision on some surgery soon and stop putting it off, so thats been taking up more time than Id like too!
So enough of excuses!
But poor Susan has been dying to show her creation she made for me off, and has waited patiently so here it is for all to see and I think you'll agree its simply breathtaking .
A while ago dear Kat the Hat sent me a pic of a prop from the Alice movie of a ribbon /thread holder that was used in the Hatters Hat making room scene.
I fell in love with it and kept looking at it and imagining it in miniature ( as I do most real life things!!)
I emailed Susan with the pic as I knew Susan had made some orrerys and suchlike in the past and thought she was the perfect person to ask if it could be done. Lucky for me, Susan came back with a definate YES and she was excited herself to begin designing and making it.
I was figuring on quite a wait , but nope, within a matter of a week or so back came a photograph of this awesome creation all finished! Isn't it absolutely beautiful, full of reels of ribbon and thread, with the tiny pin cushion on the top!
I cant quite get over it myself! Its exactly like the real life version, made with such detail and precision!
I could not be happier and neither could Susan who really enjoyed making it and is going to make herself one as she was loathed to let it go once made!!
I had wanted to make my table scene for it this week, but illness has set me back so apologies again but here it is for you to see and once its in its proper home Ill take new photos! The table scene is the one Susan took but the pins wernt in place at that time.
SO a HUGE thankyou hug to the talented Susan, who made my dream come true and has made quite simply one of the most treasured miniatures I will be lucky enough to own!!
Now its over to Susan who Im sure can tell you all how it was made etc and I know it dying to post herself about her wonderful design and creation!
