I spent most of the weekend peeling, cutting and dry packing apples for freezing. I am grateful for the apples to use all winter. I am also grateful to be nearing the end of putting away food. How fortunate I am to have had such a successful garden this year. We shall be eating healthy food this winter :) I did manage to work just a couple hours on Bernard's house. I started his kitchen island. Bernard's house is 1/2" scale, but my furnishings are turning out a bit large for the scale. They fit Bernard though, which is what matters the most to me. I do not think I shall be switching to 1/2" permanently though! Anyhow- here is the start to Bernard the Bear's kitchen. Much more work to be done, but I am pleased with the start.
Bernard looks ready to serve up some treats to visitors, doesn't he? Not too sure about my paint job on the upper cabinets- might be changing my mind there. I can't decide if I should shabby them up, or what I should do- any good tips or ideas?
On another note- my needlepoint rug for the 1/12th scale dollhouse is almost done!!!!! Hopefully there shall be pictures of it in the living room of the dollhouse soon! Of course, Bernard has already put a couple of orders in so I guess I should not put that needlepoint needle away any time soon :)
