The BIG Huge project!

I've been busy during all these months that's why I was so quiet and did not post. Moreover I've been involved into the Facebook machine .... Facebook the blog killer!!
My busy time was spent into the BIG Huge project that right now is on hold, taaah daaah:



It's a book about my mini animals with lots of pictures and the patterns to make them.
This is still a draft but took a lot of time to make it.
If you want to see something in person I will be next week-end at the Kensington Dollshouse Festival in London. My table is in the main hall, come to say hello!

The House at Pooh Corner

Been busy in the last few months, in "real life" and in "mini life" that's why I did not update the blog.
Next week I will leave for the Chicago International and I'd love to share with you some pictures of my latest works.
The first one is a book "The House at Pooh Corner" which is a 1/144 scale roombox:




It is  an old and worn book that has a little suprise inside:


Pooh house:


On the second floor there's is the bedroom,  a tiny bed, one chair with pillow, a night table with a candle, a carpet, and a huge picture of Pooh's best friend Piglet.


On the first floor there's a fireplace (I've added a picture on it after taking the picture), a cupboard with tiny dishes and a honey pot, another carpet and little Pooh:


On the back of the roombox there's a map of the 100 Acres Wood and the last page of the book:




This Pooh is the smallest one I have ever made, it is just 8mm tall! It is full jointed, the head turns and the limbs move and it took me forever to make it because of the size!



I made other three books approx like this one, another Pooh house, Piglet house and Eeyore house but they are in 1/48 scale (my eyes still hurts after making this 1/144 scale one LOL)!
If you stay tuned I will post pictures in the next days.

Sheldon ..... ?

Looook:


Doesn't he look like Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory?
I am making new little dolls with cold porcelain. I work on them in the morning when everybody is out (except fo the cat who is sleeping on the top of the sofa) and there is calm and silence all around. While I work the tv is on and I watch (I'd better say "hear") The Big Bang Theory so when I finished this doll, I looked at it and said "it's Sheldon!!!"
Then, while taking some pictures, I realized that I made a little Leonard too:


What do you ThinK?
I also made little naked babies, Bimbo One and Bimbo Two (Bimbo means baby in italian) I don't want to decide a name because then it's difficult to part from them (infact Sheldon will remain with me!).



If you are coming to Miniaturitalia this week-end please come to my table and say hello!

Miniaturitalia Workshop

Hello and hello, and happy new Year too!
I have been quiet during this period because I am working on something new for the Milan show (Miniaturitalia) of 9th and 10th February.
I will be teaching a workshop to make this little cutie:



All the participants will get all the material needed to make this little bear: the pattern, threads, hook,  stuffing, eyes, needle and even the stuffing tool .... they only have to take a pair of scissors!
If there's anybody interested in attending it you can sign in writing to info@miniaturitalia.it
Hope to see some of you in person!
