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.
Yesterday I cut and grooved all the parts for the sliding frame, the embroidery part will be able to slide up and down in the side posts.
The straight sides were cut from 1/8" square stock, the curved parts are 1/8" thick and 3/32" wide, so it was rather a challenge cutting 1/16" grooves in the delicate pieces. The straight edges will stil get a rebate cut in them so that they will fit into the groove in the side posts.
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.
