  1. Color Choices Real and Mini Houses

    That pop of red is what makes it!
  2. Finished 18th c Pennsylvania stone house

    The exterior is fabulous! Great job on the landscaping. If I didn't know better, I'd swear that cottage is life-size.
  3. My Mother's Childhood Home in 1/12th

    Can't wait to see the progress you'll make with this project. Love the old photos! I don't remember my paternal grandmother much, but I treasure one of the old photos I have. She actually looked a bit like that old actress from the Thin Man movies, Myrna Loy.
  4. William Morris style rug (half scale)

    I'm with you about the wool! I'm terribly allergic and break out in hives if I even touch it. And if I smell it, my nose plugs up and my eyes start to stream! Great job on the carpet. I have that book and several of her pattern packs waiting in the queue. She really has a nice variety of designs. I use my handy DMC color sample card which has all but the newest colors on it to do my conversions. I even took little snippets of every color, which took a while, and taped them next to the samples. Now it's super accurate!
  5. A broken bone.

    You're not the only one. My aunt, when she was in DC recently, fell and broke her wrist. They set it there, but now that she's home in FL, they tell her she needs surgery to fix it.
  6. Painting

    Also, if you're going to wallpaper, you really should paint the wood beforehand, as gluing the paper on the bare wood can lead to paper discoloration over time.
  7. I bought an RGT Queen Anne kit!

    That's a beautiful one. I've always wanted one myself. Can't wait to see what you do with it!
  8. Miniatures in Marble

    Hello and welcome! That sounds great. I'm always interested in mini statuary.
  9. What are you up to today? This week?

    About halfway through the caladium pillowcases. I took a break to make some beaded jewelry. Love how it turned out; the beads are frosted colored plastic that look like candies in very happy colors. Making stuffed shells for dinner. Avoiding heat at all costs. And, I had my 36th birthday this past Sunday.
  10. 3 Blind Mice Show(s)?

    I went to one a few years ago in NC. Small, but everyone was friendly and I had a good time. Got some cute goodies too.
  11. IMG-9202.jpg

    LOVE the lemons! Where'd you find the supplies? More info, please!
  12. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    Now that is just tragic! 
  13. Happy Independence Day

    I had a nice holiday. Had dinner with my parents, my dad barbecued steak, had a baked potato and some nice fresh corn on the cob.
  14. Hello from Florida

    No, you're not. Speaking as a former Floridian, I too hibernate in the summer and avoid heat whenever possible. I live in NC now, but this summer is worse than usual; yesterday's high was in the upper 90's. I only went outside after 8pm, and that only for a quick run to my library to return and replenish my stack of books.
  15. What are you up to today? This week?

    Congrats! Obviously they can tell you put a lot of work and love into it.
