Brilliant work! Thanks for taking the time to share…and to remind me again the benefits of using what I learned in Geometry class many MANY years ago.
This is great!

Sweet! I had a sunburst in a gable over my front porch on my old RL house…. (but we overlapped the clapboards so they would be weather-tight) it always gave me such pleasure! I think your project is looking very lovely in the glimpses so far!

A small portion of the space looks amazingly perfect. A cat makes it very realistic. I admire!

Isabeau is indeed a Beauty! I love the inquisitive expression on her kitty face although she appears a bit shyer than your Ophelia, however some cats are like that until they get to know you.
Your entry looks nice and bright Brae and I also like the detail of the kick plate on the door.

Hi Brae, I am putting together my precious contest entry. I am trying something different. I have all the pieces in place so now I am painting. I think everything you are doing is so fabulous and cannot wait to see your next entry.

Happy Birthday Brae! Your bouquet of tulips are lovely and will give you pleasure far longer than real ones would and will be a cheerful reminder of your Special Day, regardless of where they are planted. :)
Also like the new tools for the garage.

Early Bird Shopping Begins August 9th, 10 PM, MST. The show opens to all on August 11 and runs through August 14.

This is my first time participating as a dealer. I believe there will be a link once the show opens to all on the 11th. If you want to be an Early Bird, you’ll need to click that link and sign up (for a fee).

Lovely indeed! I am slowly putting together a garden sitting room as the potting shed is full of, well, pots. I think I need to figure out access to the upcoming online sale.

Gorgeous results with this technique Brae! I love brown paper for the finishing polish on wood that i’ve sanded. it seems to smooth down the grain nicely. What a fabulous colour match you achieved.
