Reporting in........

I've been busy.  I'm off to Sydney on Thursday to run a little workshop working with paperclay - which I am so looking forward to.  The workshop itself will run over three days which gets us home again very late on Sunday night.  Then on Friday, we are off to the Sydney Miniatures Fair.  I shall definitely have lots to show and tell in the next couple of weeks!

In the meantime, I have been working on Willunga and here are a few pics.

Willunga front declared finished


The lights have yet to be installed - but that is a job for next week!  This is going to be exhibited at the Sydney Miniature Fair so it will be ready!  Hahahaha!

My shed!

This little shed was a project of our miniature club.  We were each given the supplies to build this - and they all look so different.  The club is exhibiting the sheds too - I will take pics of them all at the Fair.
The floor in this shed looks blue - but it isn't really!  It's a concrete floor and is grey-ish!!

I have also been working on baskets - maybe I'll get a chance to show them before the madness of the next 2 weeks starts - and maybe not!!  We shall see.

I hope everyone is keeping well.  The weather here is cooling down nicely - daytime temps are down to 23-24 degrees and nights are just great for sleeping now!  Which means that all you people in the northern hemisphere must be getting some warm weather happening - soon at least!  Take care everyone - and cheers!


  1. Both pieces are great! I like how the gate opens saying, Welcome! :-)

  2. Good luck on running your workshop! The Willunga looks terrific! You've done a wonderful job.


  3. Oooooh Lidi! These are fantastic! I love them both. I look forward to seeing you new baskets too. Thank you for posting this.

  4. Willunga is looking wonderful mate! You already know how much i love your shed! Have loads of fun with the workshop!!

  5. Willunga is looking fabulous and I look forward to seeing photos of your club's shed projects.

  6. Good luck with the workshop. I found out about it last week, but unfortunately can't attend because I'm attending ANZAC Day with my family. Any chance you will be holding another one in the future? It looked so fantastic I would have loved to have done it.

    1. What a shame you couldn't make it!! You could always take a little break and visit Nambucca for a long weekend and do a one on one!!
      Cheers - Lidi

  7. Hi Lidi! I think that your little Wilunga looks cool and inviting! That arm chair appears to be very comfortable and I know that I could be sitting in it while I "just rest my eyes" for a moment and find myself fast asleep in no time. :D
    This little home looks like it has a long history and the solid way that it is built looks like it is meant to go on forever! The entire property is beautifully finished and presented and so is the shed.
    I wish you a great time at the workshop and at the Sidney Show!
    Take lots of pictures!!!!


    1. Thanks for the kind comments - I was really happy with the way the furniture came together - all the pieces were made by me bar the what-not stand in the corner - which I hashed and repainted. So all in all - quite happy!!

  8. Looking fantastic and so much character! Had fun the the Sydney show!

  9. it looks wonderful! I like how you separated the bedroom and gave it a very homey feeling :)
