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.
Well, I know it doesn't look like much but trust me this are two days work. I managed to turn the one back stretcher on Friday, at one stage when I was almost finished it threatened to break but fortunately didn't. Yesterday was spent on the side rails, first making the jigs and then cutting them out. I cut the rebate with my Excel knife on the one seat rail, that is slow and careful work. Off to some more work, I am making the chair for the PetitPointers chair challenge and the due date are Thursday, 31 March, so I hope to have it finished by then.
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.
