At last I am making some progress on April Cottage. I have nearly finished the fireplace. This is made from a block of styrofoam that I cut to the proper size. I then covered it with a thin layer of LaDoll airdry clay and shaped the stones into it. Once it's fully dry, I will tint it to match Cotswold limestone and then I will put a back on and a base on. It'll go in the parlor of my cottage.
I live in Upstate NY near a beaver pond and marsh. By day, I'm a small animal veterinarian. I enjoy making and crafting things, vegetarian cooking, and collecting dolls. This blog showcases my sewing, embroidery and other needlework projects, as well as the occasional bit about life in my little piece of the world.
