Sorry that it has been so long since my last posting..................life has a way of interfering in one's favorite pursuits! I have had health problems over the last 3 years but in the last 4 months, things became worse.........I need to have a hip replacement and in fact, will have my surgery on August 29!! A miracle because I got the appointment almost a month to the day from seeing the orthopedic surgeon (thanks to my dear Doug who got me on the cancellation list and also the fact that the bone is crumbling as we write). I will eventually need to have my other hip done in a year or two.
I have been unable for a long time to sit for more than 20 minutes at a time which really affects me with the computer and keeping updated on 350 blogs and Pinterest, that I follow (yes, I am crazy.........but I love to research!!). Also, my petitpoint has been very affected and I have only managed to do a few things in the last while (more on these later). So, I am going to have to be more creative in how I do these things.............with the help of my dear ones!!!
Even though I have been down and out, I have been thinking about my miniatures and planning my 'petit chateau'....................still haven't got it down on paper yet because I am having a hard time figuring out the layout of the interior................if I put in everything that I want, the chateau would be too large to get through the door. Since I am only going to build this one dollhouse, it has to be perfect to me!! Actually, the logistics of this are what has held me up for so long. Wish me luck!! Any ideas on this would be appreciated, for sure!
Well, I will now show you some of the things that I am working on in petitpoint:
This will be the Salon rug when it is finished (unless I change my mind again!!!).................

Next is a darling teapot from Sally Meekins Ceramics! I have adored her work for a long time and it is wonderful to see it in reality...the little teapot lid is removable. Hope to order more in the future, for sure.
Now, last but not least, are some pieces from Christine Lourier. These are so perfect in detail and wonderful. Again, I will be ordering more soon.
Well, I have really overdone it on this posting but I am not sure that I will be able to post again for awhile...........so I wanted to update everyone!
Till we meet again, I look forward to your comments.
