Mindy the New Miniaturist!

Having recently met a very talented young lady who makes all kinds of beautiful crafts and needlework Oly and I invited her to join our dollshouse club and challenged her to make some miniatures. She is a natural at scaling down full size and her work is so precise and neat. Look at what she's made already! Mindy made these bags and then a chest to store them in.
 I can't believe these are her first efforts.
 The boxed jewellery is lovely but my photos are not good.
 I just adore this little felt bear wearing his warm scarf.
 I think her embroidery hoops are wonderful, I've never seen any realistic working hoops in miniature before and she even did her first miniature embroidery.
It's fun having a new member of our club and Mindy has new ideas and offers fresh inspiration for Oly and me. I can't wait to see what she makes next!
