I've been making these sewing pins, which I talked about in the last post. They are so efficient when I quilt and sew. This past week I introduced them to my quilting guild and they bought them all. I needed more and necessity met opportunity. In Nature you find fruit. How hard could it be?
I've never done much in the line of miniatures. I'm not a girly-girl much and have always thought of miniatures as a way of making little charms life cupcakes and Pokemon. Well, aren't I the surprised and humbled child when I attempt making these small versions of every day fruit. I tried making a cane of orange slices. That did not go as well as I would have hoped and we won't even mention the poor version of the strawberry cane. I know that with a little more practice I will be fine. I lift my hat to those who make these to be so realistic and yummy looking.
Therefore, I offer my humble creation of oranges, lemons and apples. They will serve their purpose of making pinning fabric much more comfortable on my poor hands and that is a much appreciated purpose indeed. These challenges are about growth both artistic and personal. I have met mine, bowing to those who have made creating miniatures an art. I will study the masters and keep trying. I may even start my next challenge's project earlier this time to give myself more leeway. Stranger things have happened!
