    Try to make your seams at the corners rather than wrapped like a package. In other words cut the fabric like a cross and glue each corner together from the inside.
  3. 11/03/05 Where Are You??

    Lived in Enid, OK, Spokane, WA, Savannah, GA, Staten Island, NY, Fairfax, VA, Plantation, FL, Ridgefield, CT, Port Chester, NY, Rochester, NY and finally settled in Parkland/Coral Springs and Vero Beach, FL.
  4. What are you up to today? This week?

    Heading bank to Vero again tomorrow. I’m having the AC ducts and coil cleaned of residual concrete dust. Also, the Xfinity guy is coming to figure out why the new line is causing tv distortion. On Friday, hubby and our best friend are coming up to help put the artwork back up and then finally have a laid back weekend on the beach.  First thing I have to do when I arrive tomorrow is to purchase thank you gifts for my three neighbors. They were awesome during the whole renovation. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to call each of them to close windows and/or doors which the contractors had left open. I have a camera in my place that assisted me with monitoring stuff like that. We have some fabulous gift shops so deciding what to get each of them will be a challenge.

    But is the back seat still big enough?
  7. 11/03/05 Where Are You??

    Well, after posting that I was in Missouri, we moved back to New Orleans ... and now I'm near Atlanta.  It's just the gypsy in my soul

  11. Lake View BoatHouse 07.jpg

    It's looking fantastic!  I love this house and I love that you're doing it with weatherboards!
  12. Lake View BoatHouse 08.jpg

    Here in NZ we have a load of weatherboard buildings.  Most of our 'old' houses here are weatherboard - it was something we missed when visiting the UK last year.  We don't have 'old' like UK's old however and I loved all the stone buildings over there.  We don't have those here!!  Our house is white weatherboard - very traditional looking for here and Australia.

    Or, like the enablers we are, we could keep encouraging Lita to build a hacienda next!  Lita, keep the hubs and lose the dining room.
  22. The Alison collection

    I’m not sure how to answer that, I mean I usually see a chair I like and think I can replicate it.  I study it, find measurements if posible and as many different angles of the chair.  Scale down the full size measurements and cut and sand the wood to size and glue it.   I need to get better at taking progress pics.  I do have a pic of my latest chair frame in my furniture builds thread.  Thank you for checking out my work and your kind words.

    Not having much luck but I know in Key West they use assorted tiles. Also, yours could be a cousin of Cuban Tiles, see below. Also, See Robin Carey’s treatment of Key West stairs:

    wow so amazing .   
  28. Spanish tile staircase

    I think you’d be fine with those steps in a Caribbean house. The islands are filled with so many cultures, Spanish, Dutch, French, English...I bet I can find a real life Caribbean house that has those steps. Search is on.
