Hi Su,
Nice to see you in a 'miniatures' mind at the moment
I am really looking forward to seeing your progress and ideas on your Jenny Wren projects. I love that little house myself! I agree that we can escape from stress and everyday life by working on our miniature projects and in the process make something lovely!!

Lots of love and hugs,

Oh fab your mojo is well and truly back doll! hope it sticks around for a while! cant wait to see what you get up to! I love the cafe scene the 'resindents' thats genius.....NOT!!!! ... they look so realistic they are fab would love a group photo of the wholle lot or in groups of similar just to see your whole collection so if I spot any new ones on my internet travels I can give you a shout!. The grey brick wall in the florists scene is fab, surely that is not a paper? the 70's bedroom furniture is so familiar from childhood and I hope it doesnt fall apart like the real life version always did! xx
