Off on another adventure!

Wow, it is ages since I have posted, life has just been very hectic, both on the work and personal side. BUT, it is that time off the year again, time to travel a bit, I am leaving here late tonight for a few days in Amsterdam, will see Elly and Josje and attend the Rheda miniature show in Germany. On Tuesday I will go to New York for two days and then on to Castine for Guild School, I am really looking forward to my trip.

Here are a few photos of some of my work of the last few months.

Two foot stools that will be covered in petit point by their new owners, the Black wood one will join one of the wing chairs I made last year.

I finished this piece of petit point that I showed you in progress some time ago.

And then a very special commission, I was asked to repeat the sewing table I made last year, this is piece is special to me, as it is the first time that a piece of mine will go to a museum, it is to become part of the Kathleen S Browning Miniatures Collection at the Kentucky Gateway museum in Maysville, Kentucky, USA.

I changed a few small things this time round, I made the drawer with dovetails and changed the petit point so that it would fill the screen better. I also changed two or three of the colors and like the darker warmer background color a lot more, it ties in better with the wood color. The big drawer looks very light in the photo but it is darker in real.

Have a great weekend
