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.
Here are a few photos of all that is going with to Castine, I finished a tilt-top candlestand yesterday that I started a few weeks ago and I quickly built a roombox yesterday and this morning to display the furniture in.
Casey, this one is specially for you, the seats were needle pointed.
The fire screen is also finished.
The screen can slide up and down and stay in position.
The back of the screen.
I am off to the airport in 3 hours, I don't know when I will have internet access again, thanks everybody who send me good wishes for Castine, I appreciate that so much!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, my fire screen is almost finished, it just needs a final sanding, stain and a finish. Two of the corners of the frame will only be glued once the stain and finish has been put on if you are wondering about the gap.
I am quite pleased that the frame can slide up and down and stay in position, I was worried that it would want to fall down to the bottom.
Well, the drawers what can I say, except that it was quite a job, the drawes are only 3/32" (2,4mm) high. I am really happy at how it turned out. Only 4 days left till I leave for Castine!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
