drawings and dressoir

I am very glad and proud that John also became a follower of my blog, welcome on board, John!
Excited that the 3 miniaturists who's work and personality I admire and like so much are now all 3 followers of my blog.
A big thank you, guys!!  this is really motivating!

Today I finished the sketch for the cupboard or in fancy french the dressoir, whatever you like to call it.
Tomorrow I will probably cut some of the veneer; my plan is to work on the top first, it's a design with bands, a swirl, flowers and leaves, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well AND that I don't cut any fingers off in the process ;).
I hope to have enough time to work on it this upcoming week, if so I will post a first photo towards the  weekend.

Speaking of weekend... hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Hi Gee! I was glad to see your new post pop up on my list this morning --some blogs do, some don't (for some reason) but it's sure a lot easier to 'follow' this way. Your 'dressoir' project sounds pretty ambitious --good luck, take lots of photos and watch your fingers!

  2. Thanks for wishing me good luck, sure need it!
    Made a start on cutting the veneer yesterday and boy oh boy it is definitely more of a challenge than I expected it to be.
    But don't want to keep making furniture from paintsticks forever :)

  3. Hello Gee,
    I can't wait to see your work. It sounds absolutely fantastic. I hope it all goes well. It is an ambitious project from yuo told us, so don't give up or get discouraged. I know you'll do a fantastic job of it./
    I repeat, can't wait to see it.
    Have a great week my friend,

  4. Thank you, you are always so optimistic!
    I hope it all goes well too :D
    The first strips of veneer are on and drying as I type this, but that is the easy part.
    I am as curious as you guys are how it turns out LOL

  5. Now that I have seen your enthusiasm, I am following too! :) Good luck with your dollhouse, I'm sure it will turn out great! :)
