CONGRATULATIONS! Where on earth did you find the time to do all this in the midst of packing, moving and unpacking? Do you ever sleep?! What a great job. Very creative, beautiful and meticulous - as usual. You are totally on your way to becoming a leader in the miniature world industry. Have you ever thought about writing instructional books? I would love to have all your knowledge at my fingertips via a great book!

Ah…the in progress pictures…those are my favorites. I’m in the process of wiring with conduit…hadn’t thought about junction boxes. Junction boxes! Of course!

I was expecting you to take first place &#59;) Fantastic work, as always. It’s the little details that show how much thought and care you put into each piece.

Absolutely brilliant.
I cannot believe the amount of detailed work you accomplished in such a short time. I think I would like a retreat like Roland’s in the top of the real life clock tower next to door to me.
Thank you for sharing - this may be my new favourite build of yours!

This post is as good as the final product! Seeing the work in progress, and reading all of your tricks and techniques, is really inspiring.

I was truly not surprised at your winning first place. Also, some credit needs to go to Roland for keeping everything neat and tidy- at least until you had time to take the photos.

I wonder- does a microwave allow wood to be bent? I can see the attic as a Parisian garret. I can’t wait to see what you are creating. I know it will be exquisite:

That is a pretty impressive microwave, I must say. I am very curious to see what you are cooking up with this technique. I am sure that it will be interesting and creative, as usual.

brae [Member]

Hi, Beth - sorry for the late reply as I was moving. Are you trying to put the hoop over the stitched portions? That might be too bulky to hold the fabric tight. I’ve been using hoops larger than the stitched area, so I don’t have any other suggestions.
