A Work in Progress

This is a roombox that I'm working on for the Craft Retreat in 2013.
We are 25 or so who will be making these roomboxes.
When one is finished with the theme all the boxes  will be decorated for Christmas.

The fireplace & mirror are made from a pattern in Jane Harrop's book " Edwardian Era". The copper work is constructed by using an embossing folder.
The chair, plantstand, revolving book case, library stairs (can't see), floorlamp, hall hat & umbrella stand are made from Jane Harrop's Kits.
Fireshade stand and Victorian kakestand are also made from kits.
I'll come back to this Roombox occationally as the outside and Christmas decorations are finished.

Time for an update..............

                                                   SEAGULL  COTTAGE

My first finished doll'shouse was a kit from "Real Good Toys" and titled "Country Lane". What a job it was to get all the corners as right angles. Now it is more or less finished and standing on our tea-wagon in the corner of our living her in Norway.

The seagull on the attic window sill was made on commission by Odin.
