It’s been a whole 3 months since I finished my French Country Windmill and I can’t take it any longer. I have been wandering around the house, pulling out other discarded crafts to occupy my mind, and it’s just not enough. Nothing else offers me the daily creative challenge I need like building a miniature. I have tried needle felting to make my own creatures to populate my houses. Here is Arnold, my French mouse, coming home with a single rose for his soul mate. I just haven’t made her yet, but I will……He’s not exactly how I wanted him to turn out, but he will do for now. Practice makes cuter mice…..
So, my new project is The Baslow Ranch from Greenleaf. This will be another structure I can customize and keep casual. It will mimic a hunting & fishing getaway in the Great NW. My grown son, Greg, will be collaborating with me on this remotely from Ohio. Right now I’ve punched everything out and sanded. I’m still in my design stage of making diagrams of alternative layouts so I can make any adjustments at this stage before I start gluing walls together. I also make initial materials decisions at this time to make sure I get the look I’m going for.So, this should occupy me for awhile. I’ll be posting my progress as I go along. Until next time…..
