  1. What are you up to today? This week?

    Sounds like everyone has been busy as usual!  I have been doing lambing and maple syrup making.  I had 3 lambs born one morning during chores, One ewe is older and had a huge black ewe lamb, she has some nerve damage that occured during the delivery, so I have to help her up several times a day, she is slowly improving, the lamb is doing great.  The other ewe I have been watching because it looked like only one side of her udder was bagging out, she had twins, both white one ewe and one ram, I ran up to a neighbors and got a couple of yogurt containers of colostrum he keeps frozen all the time, and fed the twins, about 4 oz each several times that day, and yesterday.  Last night I checked the mom and it looks like she has milk, but I am reserving judgment on the amount.  The twins seem happy and fat so maybe I just checked after they devoured all the milk.   I usually make 5-6 gallons of syrup each year, it makes good gifts!  I use lines and 5 gallon buckets, so half new and half old.  Lugging the 5 gallon buckets on snowshoes is good exercise!  The first day I got a lot but it has been slower the last 3 days because it didn't get down below freezing at night.  Last night was marginal on the freezing it was just 32, but today had a brisk wind and clouds, it is better when the sun is shining.  I visited my neighbors Tuesday and helped put wood in the big evaporator they have and watched the final boil down, it kept foaming even though she added butter several times.  She has a really bad burn on her hand, 2nd degree, from hot sap.  her husband was blowing out a clogged line and she was holding the bucket.  She is lucky she didn't get it in the face.  Their lines run right into the evaporator.  I just do mine on a small deep 2'x2' stainless steel pan. Been back to sanding on the fairy house, takes a long time to get such hard wood sanded the way I want!
  2. Exterior almost done!

    This is a womderful project, I love all the detail, and the color is perfect, looking forward to seeing the inside
  3. Wagon side finished

    Beautiful, I also love the blue, being my favorite color!  The detail is wonderful
  4. I spent some time in a craft shop looking at a whole aisle of scrapbooking paper and they were all way too large, so far I can't find anything I like, I may have to resort to trying to make my own.  Still waiting for the rock siding I ordered quite a while ago, picked up some paint in the colors I want, but been way to busy with diasters to do much.
  5. The taco is Done

    Looks great!
  6. Fancy wood trims, needed

  10. What are you up to today? This week?

    Had to go get grain and "stuff" today and went with a friend, when we got back home and I was dropping her off she said come in and see this dollhouse someone dropped off at the clothing store, if you like it you can take it home.  I went in and it is a Greenleaf kit, still in the box of Santa's Cottage, looks to be in good condition, I will have to check to see if it is all there but looks like it.  There is also one of those greenleaf furniture kits, not sure it they are quite my style but may be useful in gauging sizes for me.  I think I am gathering dollhouse kits into a stash lol
  11. Dawn of the Fairy Forest painting

    Beautiful!
  12. Chandelier question

    16 little e-packets came in the mail today!  I was surprised that they are here so quick but excited to see them!  Still a few more to go, guess I should go and see about the LED's I want to use for lights.  
  13. Lacquer paint

    That sounds like it came out good!  I ended up getting a spray can of black lacquer on one of those ad on offers on Amazon.  I really like the idea of a black piano even though other furniture may not be black.
  14. The main colour

    I love your main color, any shade of blue is great with me!
  15. How do you tongue and groove for minis?

    Does that mean you put groves in the board on the 4" side, not on the edge?
