This week I didn't have much time for miniatures. On October the 28th we had the worst storm in our country since 1976, or 1990, depending on the expert talking. How wonderful living on the border of a forest can be, that day was quite frightening. Two trees close to the house went down. We were very lucky: we had almost no damage. A little bit more to the right or left, and it would have been so different.
We already had a list of trees that are close to the house and form a potential risc by being too rotten, too high, too alone or having too shallow roots. This week we hired men to bring all those trees down. They left the wood and branches were it fell, we'll be clearing garden ourselves, leaving us with firewood for at least 5 years.
Anyway, I decided to use our kitchen oven to bake the Fimo, opening the oven door every time it got too hot. But it didn't work very well. The Fimo isn't hardened well enough. Two mice and a little birdie broke. I just got one mouse left. It is ment to live in one of the boots of my conservatory. I've made the boots from Fimo and fabric some years ago.
The sooner I bring my oven back to the shop, the sooner I'll be able to work with Fimo again. But walking down a city street carrying a heavy oven is not something to look forward to...
Probably a bit late, but does anyone go to the dollshouse fair in Assen tomorrow?
Have a nice weekend!
