The minis are here to stay!

In the autumn I had a question on one of my Facebook photos “Have you done any small animals other than mice?”. That was it. I decided to have a market night. Featuring only highly detailed, stitch sculpted pieces out of painted cotton. I had so much fun creating these wee miniatures and all of a sudden I felt a bit of a weight lifted. My pieces had been getting larger and larger and it was so much fun to put my massive zebra to the side and try my hands on tiny. The market night was a great success with pieces selling out within 10 seconds. Minis are easy to place, less money and so much fun!

The mini sculptures opened up a new creative world to me. I've never been scared of experimenting and making unorthodox decisions but now I do exactly what I want. I love how the stripy tusks turned out.
