    A big WOW! I can’t even imagine how long it took to make all of those books.  The rugs and art are such the perfect touch.
  3. Finally finished my Sagamore Hill Library room box

    Who cares how long it took?  You so totally nailed it!
  4. Axminster or Wilton loom carpeting

    For texture I read this trick to use with magazine ads for rugs; use one layer of facial tissue, smear your cotton with clear-drying white glue and press the tissue layer over the top and when the glue dries the print should show through.  I would think some of the fat quarters would have suitable prints in scale.
  5. Project Updates - PROGRESS!

    My dear mother (a Yankee, bless her heart) beat it into me that if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all, which temporarily cured me of bluntness; it has worn off over the years, but old habits die hard.

    Oh, good on you AND her!

    Beautiful work.  I just order some kits from Janet Granger.  It will be my first attempt at doing needlepoint in this scale. I may ask you for some advice once the kits come in since you do such nice work.

    Standing ovation!!!!!!  This is such a fantastic project, and your progress on it has been a joy to follow. Excellent work! You should be so proud of what you accomplished.
  13. Seeking a book

    FOUND! Long story short, I was able to get in touch with the author and get a copy directly from her!  
  14. Amazing model horse book

    From the album Creatin' Contest 2019

    Jasper and I are reading up on tack for mini horses. So happy to have found this very hard to find, out of print book.

    Looks fantastic!  Amazing detail for the scale!
  18. RoomBoxExterior2.jpg

    Beautiful box!!  I take it that the box is wooden with a nice vaneer over the top?
  19. That is beautiful! I love how you contrasted a real-life picture with your recreation of it. Makes it doubly impressive. Brava!
  20. Finally finished the Sagamore Hill Library room box in half scale.  It took 16 months, which was a little longer than the year I predicted at the outset.  For my final set of pictures, I included some comparison shots with the real room.  You can see them here:   http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=browse&album=8269

  27. Axminster or Wilton loom carpeting

    Wow, I've never seen that site. No velvets or wools I can use but I ordered these two cotton prints. I'll let you know how they work out. If they're too chintz shiny, I'll throw 'em into my next ten loads of laundry. At this point I'm willing to try just about anything that has a glimmer of a chance of working.
