And she's back.....




Hi everyone,

well that was the longest break from blogging - a six-month haitus - but I do have a good excuse, planning a wedding drained quite a lot of my time and energy as you can imagine!  I also took some time to work on my miniatures without being near a computer, so that I could catch up on a lot of things that needed done.  There will be more surprises soon.  I'm starting back after the break with the exterior of Daviot House, which I have worked on a lot recently.  Lots of DAS clay!



A lilac branch has suddenly turned into a small cherry tree...



And a sprig of dried thyme became a windswept shrub ....


And here is the front of the house so far...



The roof still needs a lot of work, and I am in the process of creating the chimneys.  On the right hand side you can just about see the edge of a turret. I'll show you that when I've finished the infernal DAS-ing!  

In the meantime, here is a 'before' shot taken in June 2012, just to remind you how it all started...
