  1. Vintage Kitchen Inspirations

    That is a really neat link-- thanks, Kathie.
  2. What are you up to today? This week?

    Sorry, holly, not quite done yet-- but have hit a milestone of sorts-- have finished all the rosettes. Just did that little blue one on the upper right. All the rest is filler. (Yes, including that space right underneath that little blue rosette, according to the design that I've found.) After looking at some finished "la passacaglia" millefiori quilts online (there aren't many), I have decided to fill out (stitching in a random-ish patchwork) to the edge of the furthest finished rosette on each side. (Well, we'll see how far I get. )
  3. Pepperwood Farm Exterior - Advice/Opinions Please!

    For a wonderful paperclay stone treatment, check out Bogie's Glencroft; this and kellyannmo's stone Rosedale were the inspirations for my 1/2-scale stone Rosedale in paperclay. Looking forward to seeing your progress!
  4. What's everyone working on?

    Still plugging away on millefiori quilt top, but took some time this weekend to make another upholstered chair like the ones I've made before-- my own design heavily advised by Kris' techniques-- for a secretary at work who is retiring next week. Hope she likes. (The teddy bear, I made back in 2011, apparently!
  5. Magnolia

    Had to look through my build pics-- I made my own trim for that opening, out of basswood strips. Don't recall any trim being provided in the kit.
  6. Half Scale Rosedale!

    I'm glad if they're helpful-- I am just now realizing that it's been four years since I did that build! Wow-- time flies. I do vaguely recall that the second floor install did give me fits until I figured out something about the correct way to twist it out of plane, apparently...
  7. Half Scale Rosedale!

    Here are my 1/2-scale Rosedale stairs: Looking forward to seeing your build!

    This is going to look so good in white.

    Welcome, Joan. Would love to see some of your quilting projects! I've been doing some English Paper Piecing lately, some in miniature:  
  10. Wood floors

    Thanks, Joanne-- sorry about the small pics in the album; maybe these are better, from my blog post: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=blog&module=blogs&controller=entry&id=1865
  11. Wood floors

    Yes, the Beacon Hill drawing room:  
  12. Ebay, Etsy & Craig's List Links

    The Willowcrest has some tight spaces in it-- notably, the first and second floor landings. This and this, respectively, are about the best views that you can get of them. I believe I'd spend that money on a Willowcrest kit and make it from the ground up.
  13. What are you up to today? This week?

    Thanks, Holly-- it's slow going, that's for sure. Would help if certain furry people didn't make me have to replant things.
  14. Stained_Stairs.jpg

    Beautiful-- love the stain and white combo.
  15. Greenleaf Willowcrest Third Floor Question

    Looking through my Willowcrest build pics-- haven't done this, but looks like it wouldn't affect sturdiness. You'll have to patch holes in the 3rd floor and in the roof, though.
