Last visit, we were in the studio, this time, we can have a chat in the living room. As you can see, this is where the owners relax and entertain themselves.…
|All cosy on a Summer's evening|

The kitten likes the comfy Bespaq sofa, although I think that he may have fleas. He is always scratching!
|Good books, comfy chair and snacks|
Since it is Summer, the fireplace is sporting a fire-screen, which I made yesterday from a laser-cut kit which I purchased from one of my favourite suppliers of mini-goodies: Dragonfly International. It was such a nice change to spend a little time making a mini for myself, after having spent nearly 3 months designing and teaching workshops :-)
I am very pleased with how the fire-screen turned out, this time…In a moment of inattention, I lopped off a chimney when cutting out the graphic, the first time I made the kit :-( Even though I tried, I couldn't camouflage the damage I had done, so I said a few rude words and ordered another kit. This time, I paid close attention to what I was doing! I just love the graphic of the row of vintage dollhouses and I think it fits in with the country-cottagey-antiquey feel of the place.
The original plan for the house partitioned off the stairs, which made the upper room really small and pokey. I could have gone the easy route of building a half-wall to surround the stairs, but no, I wanted railings. I had a heck of a time with them :-} I am not good with wood, I am not good with angles, but I am persistent, so eventually (after a lot of mumbling under my breath), I had my railings…
I moved the club chair to show the screen better. I will forget to put it back, if I don't do it now, so I think I will close and run downstairs to replace it :-)
Next Time: A peek in the bedroom.
