First of all I want to welcome the new followers of my blog. I hope you like it here and love to read your comments.

Forgive me for not posting earlier about my Castine experience...it's really  time to share it with you guys/girls! But you know how things go during the summertime.

I will keep this post short and show you the pictures of the things I made.
So here we go......

 The sofa was made in Nancy Summer's class and the Spathiphyllum by Hiroyuki Kimura. His class was wonderfull, the leaves of his plant really move which makes them very realistic.

The cart was made during Francine Coyon's class a really wonderfull French lady with a great sense of humor! 

And this is of the Trimmings Class from Jane Davies a very interesting class   where we've talked about 18th and 19th century trimmings how they where made and other sewing skills. 

I've learned a lot during this wonderfull week and met wonderfull people from all over the world. It's I place I look forward to go back to.

  7. Fantastic classes Jeffry! I just viewed 521 photos of this year's Guild School, it really is THE best miniature event there is. I so wish I could afford to go back... Oh well, I am lucky to have been there once. I spotted you in a couple of the photos ;-)

    I love what you have made. I could use that sofa myself and if I ever go back to Castine I would love to take a Kimura class and the Trimmings class as well!

  8. @Isabelle:
    Merci à la voiture en osier était amusant à faire. Francine et donne une bonne leçon. (Mon français n'est possible que via google ne fera pas de bonnes excuses).

    @Ray: Thank you it was a wonderfull experience and hope to go back there someday. Glad to hear that you like the drapery treatment, that curtain was a lot of work. The dolls they are so much fun to do.

    Gracias a la banca que realmente quería para mi casa de muñecas.
    El bordado fue realmente muy divertido y educativo.

    @Gee: Leuk dat je zo meedenkt Gee.
    Het zou zeker leuk staan in het winkeltje maar waarschijnlijk komt het straks op "zolder" te staan in m'n poppenhuis.

    @Margriet: Ja het heeft veelste lang geduurd hopelijk was het het wachten waard ;-) Het was een hele bijzondere week, kan het iedereen aanraden een keer te gaan. Als het goed is komt Francine van het wagentje volgend jaar naar Apeldoorn!

    @Josje: Thank you! Where did you find all those photo's...I can't seem to find them:-( I hope to go back there as well.

    I know......that sofa was a must...it will be perfect for the livingroom, it needs some tiny adjustments ofcourse. You should his classes are wonderfull...Debora and I really enjoyed the Japanese music during class! Jane Davies is wonderfull....she knows so much about fabrics/history etc. it was a treat
