Back from the Guild School

Actually, I've been home for nearly two weeks, but I've had a lot of bad news lately and I haven't felt much like blogging. Things have been looking up in the last few days, so I'm going to try to start updating fairly regularly again.
I loved making this tiny 1/144th scale garden cottage in Nell Corkin's class. Nell brought the cottage walls already cut (we had to cut the windows!) and the weather vane already assembled. Everything else was made in the class.
 Constructing the trellis was fun, but I didn't like adding the climbing roses nearly as much!

 I may add some taller laser-cut flowers along this side now that I'm home.
 There was even time to make furnishings! The chairs were difficult- the first time I tried to put them together, I glued them all wrong, and then I painted them with a half-dozen coats of the wrong color by accident. But in the end, it all worked out.
 It was so fun to see all the finished projects at the end!


  1. Wow! These are wonderfully tiny - but what an amazing amount of detail you created! Incredible! :) x

  2. The little house is amazing! So detailed and complete, I can't imagine how much patience was required in this class!
