Saturday was an all day workshop for members to work on their trailers for the September Show and Sale display "A-Camping MEE will go". Tina MacD. led those members who were interested through building cabinets/kitchens in 1:12 scale.
As with all our workshops, we hope that those members who aren't doing that particular item or scale will still come and take advantage of the camaraderie and learning experience of the day.
Lorry and Sunni were finishing up their small scale trailers (from Betterley plans in, I think, Miniature Collector).
|Sunni's (she built an LED light in the ceiling of hers)|
This is the start of Barb S.'s kitchen base cupboard. The area on the left hand side of the counter will be the stove top.
Marg is working on this beautiful Gypsy Wagon. (Love the colours!)
This is the lovely 'crazy quilt' she was making on Saturday. The silk pieces were set in place then she used stretched Bunka to outline the pieces. When we spoke, she thought she would use the Bunka to further divide the pieces of silk. A beautiful quilt!
Inger's trailer is coming along well.
Somehow I didn't get pictures of Joanne's Bookmobile trailer...which is a shame since the outside is papered with shelves of books! When it comes together, it will be great!
All I accomplished during the day was making 11 of my "City of St. Albert" books (gave one to Trineke) to take along on my upcoming trip to Ontario and Nova Scotia.
Former club member, Liliana, came to sell more of her stash due to health/vision problems. It's such a shame as in the past Liliana did the most incredible fine painting of small models. (The Father Christmas in the counter of my Christmas Shop is one of her pieces.)
|Bought this for $1 for DBIL Grahame. He's a sailor and has a collection of ships!|
|Paid $3 for this little basket.|
|Bought 4 bags of these stretchy metallic wire pieces for 50 cents each....great Christmas garlands!|
Then on to the contents of my three $2.00 bags:
|this wonderful corner cabinet!|
|two RL brass Christmas ornaments that I'll give to Jonah and Holly|
|two decorated plates, plate and pitcher, two vases (actually drawer pulls that need flattening and/or bases, 10 glass plates|
|cake on stand, gold cup, brass ornament, white sneakers, football, patinated Buddha, (?), scissors, plumbing wrench, clothes hook|
|(first three) miniature glue gun with coloured glue sticks; perfume vial; onions; cookie sheet with gingerbread cutters; water taps (better than any I have in my stash!)|
The perfume vial from one of the bags turned out to be sterling silver! Here it is partially cleaned.
Reutter shop front.
Several of us who bought the bags from Liliana knew we would not use some of the pieces so we 'passed them on' at the time or plan to do so later.
I passed these pieces on on Saturday and almost all of them were picked up.
Good day all around!
