    The top is finished for the sunny block quilt. Now to cut it out and sew on some backing!

  2. From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    The porch section is glued together, but not glued to the house. I still have a few corners that require some spackle. My two guardian nutcrackers are plain white - not sure if I want to paint them at this stage.

Mine are very good so far,but I don't look forward to another session of chemotherapy today-or at least the aftermath! Just hang in there and keep trusting in God,Sarah,and you'll get through today fine! Lots of hugs,Kat

  6. From the album: 1/2 Scale Ravenwood Hall a First Lady by RGT

    I took a break from my Creatin' Contest house to dry fit my First Lady, I've been itching to do this.... and OH MY it's a MONSTER! Where in the heck am I gonna put this one ('cause my plans at the moment is to keep this one) .... YIKES! I am going to do this one Gothic... and I am going to leave one panel of the tower roof off so you can access the tower. The room dividers are just sitting in place at the moment... I haven't decided what I am going to do with the rooms yet (and they are holding the floor in place at the moment too, since this house has to be glued and nailed in place)....

    Here is an idea of the ceiling height it what may be the "servant's quarters" ... it would be really easy to lift this roof height though (which I may do???)

  12. Over that kitchen area would be a super place to dry herbs, hang the meat, string the veggies up and have baskets and bags of flour and of potatoes, etc. A larder, of sorts. I think a cool little secret passageway could be created between the third floor tower room and the triangular room next to it in the V of the roof. If you then moved the straight wall over to the left a bit to create your 2 regular rooms, that triangular area could be a completely secret-ed off area. Maybe they keep the crazy family member locked in there or all the gold or liquor or the ghosts. I have a vivid imagi

  15. I grew up in a rather strict and straight-laced environment where teachers sat right beside God and enforced all the rules (or wrote new ones) when He was too busy. Not a good environment for a creative child with a vivid imagination!! So in early adulthood I was still afraid to think outside the box, or rock the boat. However, it didn't take me too long, after my school years, to realize I was not going to please everybody - nor was I obligated to please everybody. Therefore, as long as am pleasing God, the rest of the world can take me as I am or leave me alone! I love Popeye's song -- "I

  16. We grilled dinner again this evening. I also burned some of the chopped up vines and brush I have been cutting down. I can finally see the back of the property from a distance. I also spent some time looking up tree house materials. The anchor bolts are kind of expensive- $119 each, and it will take a minimum of 4 just to build the main platform. They're very long, heavy metal rods with threading on one side to hold the rod in the tree, a metal ring that serves as a spacer between the lumber bracket and the tree, and threading at the end for a nut to lock in the bracket. It sounds

  17. My collection lists are on page 4, so I won't list again. I just wanted to jump in on the hair thing. I have always had long hair and I love it. When it all fell out I was at such a loss and as it grew in and was trimmed I discovered I REALLY hated short hair. It took about 2 years, but it all grew back just as long and thick as it was. Call me happy. Back in the day, women never cut their hair, but once they were married, they wore it up. I have to be careful when I say I dislike short hair to include the 'on me' part. Some women take it personal, like you are insulting them. I also
