I have not been doing a lot of miniature work lately. I did manage to work a bit on the staircase for my house for Bernard the bear. I decided that the staircase would need a railing or a wall- he could fall off of an open staircase if he was too tired! I built a wall out of skinny sticks and metal washers. I have not attached it yet- still trying to decide if I like it or not. I also made a second staircase out of skinny sticks and basswood. It's not perfect- but it matches close enough to the set that came with the house I think. I think that if a dollhouse has stairs to one floor that there should be stairs to every floor, or no staircases at all. Just my opinion. I have also been working on my tea cozy. This is for my regular "human" teapot. I drink a lot of hot tea in the winter, so I stitched this tea cozy for my tea to stay warm in between cups. Unfortunately, after I made it I had the teapot too close to the stove and my hubby splashed bacon grease on it. I love this fabric- and I had already done all the beading you see on the edge of the cozy, so I decided rather than throw it out and start over I would just keep stitching on the cozy until the bacon grease is hidden. I'm still stitching on it, but here you can see the progress I have made so far. I have to say a big thank you to everyone that read my previous post all the way through and commented. I do not have a lot of friends in real life- definitely not a lot that would want to hear about my weight and health issues, so support from blogging friends mean a lot to me. Walked yesterday and had a very healthy dinner with some strawberries as a snack, so I am heading in the right direction hopefully.
