A lot has happened in the last two months, and this blog post is long overdue. The most exciting thing to happen on the miniatures front was this:
The title of the article, "Two is Company and More," is a play on our business name, Two's Company Miniatures.
The other big event was Mom's graduation. For the past three summers, she's been in an intense master's program to become a principal/school administrator. This was my graduation gift to her.
I used a man's slipper pattern kit (designed by Bobbie Schoonmaker) to get the basic slipper shape. Since Mom already had a finished pair of the kit slippers, she asked me to make a pair with foxes instead. I charted the fox heads, then added hounds to the side. Since I had Mom approve the design and colors, the slippers weren't really a surprise, but I did manage to surprise her that they were finished!
