Not weaving yet ...
Summer hobby - a kit doll house,
called "Fantasy Villa"
to which I built on 3 rooms.
(Kitchen, bathroom and study)
It has taken me 3 years, but now,
it is painted, has window panes and
curtains and I managed to collect
the furniture that is available in
this small size and in my price range.
The house is in
half inch/ 1:24 scale,
50 cm tall (19 3/4") x 56 cm (22")wide.
I built the sink in the
kitchen myself and still need a small
cupboard or meat safe to make it complete.
Also still missing is a small spiral stair case,
which I am still working on, - to lead from
the music room to the attic and the study.
Note: The rugs in the bath room, bed room and
study are hand woven (yeah! :-)
My friend's DH also made me some books
for the study (he is a book restorer).
Below a place for friends and a cuppa
on the balcony and new home made pot
plants for the porch
Here is the house key,
if you would like to visit :-)
If you are still with me, :-)
I am warping my small loom "Imp" for new
table runners. I found I had given all the
light coloured ones away for presents, and
feel kind of "down" with navy blue,
dark green and dark brown ones
I found enough light coloured "left over bits"
creates an adventurous warping experience!
(I need to measure out all one colour to find
out how many warps I can get from it, and
then I have to split the bundle,
because I want equal colours on each side ...)
Warning for beginner weavers:
This is not the right way to warp! (chuckle)
I'll be all right! I'll prove it next time!
Have a good weekend!
