Time has flown by since my last post and truth be told I haven't had much time to work on Windward house. I decided to stop teaching Miniatures Classes and also to no longer sell my work in shows. It was a tough decision after 20 years of it. But it was time to do something that produced income for a change so I went back to work in the "Real World". It's a good thing! I am hoping to get back to work on my miniature house soon.......it has been sitting idol for many months and I see it everyday and want to move it forward.
Here are a few pictures that many of you have already seen.....so stay tuned for new ones soon.
We drew the railings in AutoCAD on the computer and had them laser cut. I have found a local company that does Photo Etching and I plan to have more intricate French style railings made for all the windows and balconies. Thank you Jean Claude for posting that wonderful French foundry source!
Thank you to everyone who looks at my work. Though silent......I have been enjoying my many blog friends work over the months. This last weekend I had the privilege of a visit from my dear friends
Giac and Jo! Yes.........Late Victorian English Manor Dollhouse: 1/12 Miniatures from Scratch, was with us for the entire weekend and of course we did Minis! They are dear and talented friends and we were honored to have them visit on their Anniversary!
Until next time........
