  1. Best Thing I Ever Made!

    Please let's not get off on any political topics!
  2. What are you up to today? This week?

    Cool tree, Jackie.
  3. Making porcelain dollhouse people

    One of the reasons I think I'll keep on with the polymer clay is I never know who or what will emerge from the clay, but, by golly, they have lots of personality!
  4. Grandpa's new project

    I think postage is high most places.  I don't send goody packages to my overseas friends any more; the last time I about fainted when we paid the postage on a very small, lightweight package.
  5. 1:24 Scale & 1:144 Scale Lighting: How?

    Why would you light your micro house?  If you must, I suppose you could rig something with fiberoptics.
  6. What are you up to today? This week?

    I had a gas stove in Havana, I hated when it died and I replaced it.  The oven has electronic ignition, so it can't be used to bake or roast when the power is off; at least I could light the burners to cook on top of the stove when we lost power.  I'm no fan of electric, but it's what we've got here.
  7. Best Thing I Ever Made!

    It shows.  What's Ben doctor of?  PhD or something else?  It's so nice to have a scholar in the family.
  8. What are you up to today? This week?

    Errands today and grocery shopping.  We finally scraped enough $$ together to go out and order my new stove today, to replace the 30+ year old GE I found at the Habitat for Humanity Restore when we moved here.  I found another one online almost exactly like it, only brand new.  I want front controls and coils on the cooktop, NOT glass.  If we had a nat gas line handy I'd prefer gas appliances for efficiency, but I can cook on either.

    What was in the first picture?

    Colin, unless you decide to make all of your windows yourself, ask the various suppliers if they make ALL of their 1:12 components to a single standard.  Considering that many dealers have their components manufactured "overseas" in unnamed countries, there may be no guarantee.of uniformity.
  11. What's everyone working on?

    Harbor Freight sells loupes really, really cheap and in addition to mini needlework I wear mine for the removal of miniscule splinters.  In addition to the drawing salve that might be a handy thing to keep by.
  12. Am I being too picky???

    You could paint it after making fills & repairs, or you could return it to the seller and request a refund for the stair (and the postage to return it), pointing out the condition it was in when you received it (including the cut out labels).  Was it sold as mint condition/ NIB?
  13. First Room Box

    What does your room box tell you it wants to be?  Will there be a view through a window?  Stairs behind a door?  That sort of thing?
  14. What are you up to today? This week?

    Have a wonderful time!  DH & I rode the train the day we went to Blue Ridge.
  15. What are you up to today? This week?

    I did, and thank you very much; I'll definitely show your PM to the hubs for the next time we're over that way.
