Hi, my name is Elga and I live in South Africa. I love dollhouses and miniatures. My two biggest passions are furniture making and embroidery and of course the two combined. Welcome and enjoy browsing my blog.
I am busy making 1/12 scale footstools (my first commission). The bottom photo is of a full sized footstool that I am recreating in miniature. In the top photo you can see my progress so far. First I cut a piece of wood into thin strips and then routed a groove for the base in it. The strips were then mitred , glued together into a square and the base added, I also decided to make some rectangular ones. The next step is to router the outside curves and top lip, after that is done I will turn some hamburger shaped little legs. The square footstool is 1 9/16" in size and the rectangular one is 1 9/16" by 2 3/8". Keep watching to see further progress.
I am married and the mother of two grown up daughters plus two dogs and two cats. I love working with my hands and enjoy furniture making, petit point, doll making, crochet and knitting and I am also building a dollhouse to house all my treasures.
