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 went to my local saw mill today to buy some African Blackwood that I want to use in turning knobs for the sewing table and for the chairs that I will start in the new year. It sure was my lucky day, the manager at the mill gave me a bag full of African Blackwood offcuts and one with the Mopane wood that I have been using for the sewing table. This mill specializes in supplying wood for the making of musical instruments so it is choice wood and well seasoned. The best thing is that the mill is only 10 minutes drive from my home and they asked that I give them photos once my tables are finished to put on their website.
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.
