I need to return my workroom back to a spare bedroom so I have decided I can't continue with 1/12th doll housing. I am a tidy freak and there is no where else in our small house where I can work on this stuff without it looking untidy all the time. It isn't too big a wrench because, unlike most other people, I don't keep my houses when they are done. Our house just isn't big enough to display doll's houses hither and yon, so when I start a new one I have to sell its predecessor: selling The Willows half done is just sort of like having to sell it a bit early!
I hope to continue in the hobby and carry on going to shows and writing for DH & MS magazine but I shall be working in Quarter Scale (1/48th). Fingers crossed it grabs me.
My starting project is a bit of a challenge for folk who know what they are doing - nothing like jumping in at the deep end. Take a look at: The Gatehouse and follow me there if you want to see how I get on.
Meanwhile The Willows has gone to a lady who is organising her own doll's house fair this month and it will be on show there as a work in progress and will be completed and brought back next year to show the finished project. If you can possibly get to Rochdale on 25th August do try to support her (and her husband's) hard work. It sounds as if it will be fun.
