This month has been pretty terrible for me, for various reasons, and as a result, my miniatures have suffered from neglect.
But to celebrate the birthday of my sons, I received this beautiful miniature painted on ivory. I've chosen to hang her in the parlour, and I think it is just the touch I needed to get on and start finishing the decor of this room!
I like the added coral red colour, and I think I'll try and add that to the room when I do the soft furnishings and upholstery. I think it is a good foil for the turquoise and slate blues.
Still nothing is finally fixed down (there are so many gaps in the woodwork) but I think it gives a good idea of the proportions. I added door handles and a latch from Sussex crafts and granite steps. I am still waiting for architraving!
Next on the list for this room is a chippendale sofa that I need to upholster, but I have so many sewing projects on the go that I have banned myself from even thinking up a design!
I hope you have had a better October than I, and I would just like to say that all of your comments and support have been SO appreciated.
Also, a big welcome to new members, I will try to get my blog activity levels up again after this pause,
