Tulips for Dad

I am still working away on my flowers for the Garden shed, but I've been mainly concentrating on red and yellow tulips, they were my dad's favourite flower.  My dad was my mentor for my model building.  A good carpenter himself, he built several model ships that he proudly displayed in our family home and cabin.  He helped me assemble my first dollhouse and assembled the roof and glued on every shingle on my Queen Anne Victorian.

On the eve of Father's Day, I miss him so much, only having lost him in the past three months.  I can't look at a miniature project without thinking of him.  My entire Garden Shed project has become my tribute to him. He loved to work in his shed.

I've made over 60 yellow and red tulips to place around the garden shed with the many other flowers.  It's been a tedious job, but an absolute labour of love.

To every mini maker out there, if you still have your dad in your life, give him a big hug this weekend, I would love to be able to do that to my dad.

Until next time...........

These are lovely miniature flowers. What I can't imagine is how much time it took to make them!
