I’m always sharing photos of what crafty things I get up to, but thought, for a change, I’d share some pictures of what some other family members get up to.
Readers know that the husband likes to keep busy out in the garden, but he’s not averse to messing around with a paint brush too.
Of late, he’s rediscovered a cake tin full of lead soldiers (he used to play Wargames) . . . and has been having lots of fun painting those.
They’re troops from the Napoleonic wars, but that’s about as much as I know.
Only 28mm tall, so the husband has a steadier hand than I do, to get all the details done.
Here’s a close up of one of the groups I rather like . . . getting the canon reloaded and ready for battle!
And then . . . over in my sister’s home . . . you’ll remember she got remarried in May this year, and that I crocheted a bride & groom doll for the occasion.
Well . . . I was rather pleased when my sister told me that they loved the dolls so much, they wanted to have them on permanent display! Her husband is a very handy woodworker, so he made a little case for them, and dolls now stand in pride of place in their living room.
