holy cow ashgrim!!  You sure put a lot of hours and thought into you house!  Love the orange roof topper things...and the ptery looks very scary with his makeover...like a demon from hell!

The little tombstones outside are also a nice touch...

Can't wait to see more!

Such a fabulous job Ashgrim! Love the house and all those little details. Those headstones are an amazing find Smiley

ashgrim, this is a printable for an oriental rug in 1 inch scale. http://www.printmini.com/printables/rugs/rug1.shtml They have other scales as well. You could print it on canvas or print a transfer and iron it onto the texture you desire. They also have several styles to choose from. I might try a transfer on cream felt.

I never would have thought of doing a heat transfer to fabric! Thanks for the idea!

Well I've read all 150+ and ladies (sorry and gentlemen if there are some) you are a super talented group of people.
I'm dripping with envy and so jealous...grr!

So is it too late to join this adventure?
I lost my dollhouse, a massive field stone farm house, in a house fire...and yes, the real house went to ashes with it. I use to make miniature food, cake, and Russian Punch Point rugs but when the houses went, my desire went along with it. I had just completed the house, the mini, a few days before the first.

But let's not sidetrack too much. I just ordered a new house, a small one and a camper. I know which direction I want to take them both, so I can't wait to get started. This looks like a great place to spend time with people who loved the same thing and there is just a wealth of information.

If it's not too late...I'd love to join. You'll have to bear with me...as I've not done miniatures for about 25 years, so I know I'm a tad rusty.

My house is going to be a gathering place with the local "old doll's" of the community. Like the Red Hat Society...there will be tea's, cakes and assorted other offerings on the bottom floor. The top floor is going to be an apartment that will be shared by two very lovely ladies whom shall I say, are fond of each other. The camper, is to satisfy the gypsy in me, I'm going to turn that into a Gypsy Trailer/Camper.

Now to get started.

Nice to meet you Ravens Snow and welcome! I don't think it's ever too late for this particular project, people seem to start and complete projects and start new ones all the time! I'm beginning to suspect this mini thing might be addictive, and possibly contagious....

I'm so sorry about the fire, that must have been devastating Sad I'm glad you've decided to start again, your two projects sounds wonderful and I can't wait to see your pictures!

This week I'm focusing on the bedroom, and I got a little bit done over the last couple of nights. I decided that my little bed needed a little quilt, celestial themed of course.

I used liquid starch to get it to drape correctly over the bed. I also made a little pillow.

Originally I had envisioned the bed being messed up, but I couldn't get the fabric to drape correctly that way. I like it looking neatly made, too, though.

I'm just getting back into miniatures as my post says but to get my bedding to lay exactly where I wanted, whether perfectly or messed I put a layer or two of Aluminum Foil sandwiched between the top and back of the quilt. I use the cheapest brand or Dollar Store, as it's thinner and doesn't add unwanted bulk. Most of the time I've ended up using 2 layers. That way you can press it into whatever shape your looking for and it stays. I also use it under a table cloth which usually has a mind of it's own and wants to stand out at the corners.

What a clever idea!  I am sure your experience will be a great help to all of us!  I love learning new tips and tricks since I am new to this wonderful craft of creating a fantasy house!  It is hard for me to stay focused and keep my interest level up when I get frustrated because I don't know where to start or what to do!

Thanks Ravens Snow--I hope you will share your crafts and give us more ideas! Cheesy

Thanks for the warm welcome Madra and alwaysinmyroom.

I have a question regarding adhesive's/glue.

It's been many years since I constructed my first house and adhesive's and glues have certainly changed a great deal and have came along way for crafter's and woodworker's.

I think basically the only choice for dollhouse construction was wood glue.

I was wondering what everyone's choice was regarding this...is one better over the other. I love woodglue, reminds me of many hours spent with my father in his workshoppe. But...it takes so long to dry and clapping is truly a pain and takes so much time that could be spend doing more fun things.

I'd love "veteren" house creator's input.

Thanks in advance...
Raven
