Upcoming projects

Currently, I am finishing Miss Lillian's and the Fairfield. I've put aside the Whitney/Primrose for now.

I am also working on the Stone Glencroft Cottage, which I am electrifying.

I've had an idea for a while now about making a workshop, and have a Primrose kit, furniture, and accessories to do so.

I have a half-scale Van Buren kit, which is slated to become a summer/vacation house.

Still have one more 1/4 scale house kit, and two book/boxes which will be made into two-room room boxes in 1/4 scale. One of these will probably be my family Christmas swap item.

And, big step for me, I'm going to enter the Greenfield Spring Fling. The kit and additions have been ordered, and I've got an idea. The deadline for this contest is Oct. 31, so I've a bit of time to get it done.

NAME is offering a swap, and I thought I would try that also. I'm planning to make needlework pillows - two each if I have time. I need 20 packets to send to the swap. I'll be working on those and Spring Fling accessories/furniture at camp this summer, and building the SF entry during the week when I'm home.

Catching up - the Frightening Fairfield.

This house is nearly finished. I'm trying to either make or find in my price range a suitable tree for the yard. I have wrought iron fence to install, pillars and a gate to construct.

Catching up... Miss Lillian's.

It's been a while. I've been through carpal tunnel surgery, trigger finger surgery, and then two weeks ago I broke my left pinkie finger. It's been quite the challenge this winter.

Miss Lillian's Feline Cottage, slightly more furnished. I made a cloth screen to separate the bedroom from the bathroom.

Better picture of living room details.




I'll post more up-to-date pictures once I've taken them.
