  1. Past Hour
  2. New Project

    Needs some cleaning up with sandpaper and maybe a touch of filler but this is my first shot at making the molding using curved veneer. Not Sobol quality but it is a start. I went with concave molding instead of convex like in the drawing. A bit rough but I learned a lot from it

  4. Curtains, arg!

    The important lesson I learned with mini curtains is that polyester and other synthetic fabrics won't hang or drape in mini like natural fibers.  Old polyester neckties work da bomb for mini upholstery, but cotton and silk are best for drapes & bedding.

    Thanks for the views and encouragements every one. It will be a few days for another update. More soon though.
  6. Curtains, arg!

    So, I used to own a seamstress business. "Curtains will be an easy thing", I told myself.  I figured I'd need a lightweight fabric, that hung well. Put my hand on every bolt of fabric at Joann. I decided on some high end lining. Super thin, tight weave, but enough weight to hang. Grrr. So I think I've got window in 2 rooms figured out. And now I think the others will just get swags or valances.  And for the attic, since its Addams Family inspired, boards across the windows! There, problem solved.

  11. building for low income children

    wish I had better pictures but I never thought I would enjoy building them so much. It is....for the most part....very relaxing. Also the little girls that have recieved them have so much fun. These kiddos would never had one otherwise.    When I first started I was doing pretty well financially. Due to ending up divorced I just don't have the means to buy the kits....even in the rare instance I find one on Craigslist. If anyone has one that has missing pieces I coulf make that work for the little girl I plan on building it for.

    Thank you!    The primer coat actually bonds to the fuzzies and makes it easier to sand them away.

  19. Post teller progress

    From the album Creatin' Contest 2019

    Continuing to revamp a vintage Realife Miniatures post teller. I've always liked these kits, but this one in particular is more challenging and not in the best condition. I've remade parts and continue to alter to fit my small post office interior.
