This little item has been more problematic than any of the past knitted animals and furniture items for the animated film.  It's a tiny chandelier, a mere 4 inches square, with real light up bulbs.

It's been constructed from florists wire, blutac, florists tape, crochet yarn, buttons, beads and a great deal of blood, sweat and tears!

The little bulbs are LEDs that are supposed to be inserted in balloons and are for one use only - therefore the little crochet holders are made for easy bulb change.

This made the cuckoo clock's construction seem like a walk in the park!

Still painting every spare minute of the day - one down and two to go with 10 days left ticking on the clock.........

Good Lord, I can only imagine how fiddly this way! But it is so sweet, you should be very, very pleased with it. :)
