My mum is still waiting for treatment to start, she had a biopsy last week and then hopefully we will know what they are going to do.
I will admit I have been very depressed, which is unlike me, but this time when normally I can switch off and get on with other stuff, for my own sake I had to get back to doing my miniatures, so I have decided to do something that I had an idea for some time ago,
I want to do a stable with a small tack room, a small area for the horses and a shop that sells all kinds of horsey stuff, but also specialises in Arabian horse costumes, there I have told you now, so I must do it. I have not made it easy for myself, I cannot find much in miniature in this subject, so I am using my imagination and hopefully it will work.
So let me show you what I have been up to.
|this is what I had to make into my stables|
|one of my horses, I made a dividing wall, the smaller side will be a little tack room|
|using egg cartons for the outer stone work|
|I used lolly sticks for the floor|
|base colour for the stone work|
|I used mount board for the roof, cut and shaped to look like tiles and then base colour added|
|saddle holder and saddle|
|2 saddle holder made from balsa wood|
Well there it is I have started.
