Through the eye of a needle...

If you spend much time in Mexico you will see some wonderful things...things that you can hardly believe are possible. I am always amazed by some of the miniature dioramas like those of the Nativity Scene that are so small that they are contained in a nut shell. However, after seeing the video below I think there is no limit to what people can do no matter where they are. There is a man named Willard Wigan in England who makes tiny dioramas so small that they fit into the eye of a needle. I am truly humbled. You will be too!

WOW!! Twenty million dollars, his life's work. Man oh life I just couldn't believe how he could do such small and precise work. There is something in all of us that sooner or later comes out. Thanks Bob. I just stopped by on my way to other blogs to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Take care, eat well, and be merry.

You made me hungry for a grilled cheese and tomato soup!
