    This 2" long chest is fully jointed with dovetailed drawers, working lock and trade label printed on period paper. The tools are all functional, the rule folds, the saw has 160 teeth to the inch, the dividers and calipers have friction hinges. This took nearly 1000 hours to make in the late 1990's.

    I think Annelle's petit point really compliments the William and Mary cabinet made by Bob Hurd so well.

    Designed and stitched by Teresa Layman. This was one of my IGMA Fellow submission pieces. The design was inspired from the end papers of a children's book called, "The Lady and the Lion" by Laurel Long. The piece has approximately 2000 French knots per square inch and took about 800 hours from start to finish.

    Lisa Salati stitched these chair seats using charts from Annelle Ferguson which she adapted to fit the shape of the chair seats and also changed the colors of each chart to harmonize with each other so that the chairs can be used as a set. The chairs were made by David Booth.

    Decorative plaster work, known as "pargeting" was the fashionable way to update your tired old half-timber house in 16th century England. Inspired by Henry VIII's Nonesuch Palace, designs could range from simple geometric shapes to faboulous fantasy creations, depending on the skill of the craftsman and the taste (and budget) of the homeowner. The craft of pargeting is enjoying something of a revival in England today. This house was build from 1?32" birch plywood, with gesso used to simulate plaster. The floral design is my own, but as it took me over 10 years to come up with a satisfactory technique for achieving small scale pargeting, I'm keeping the process under my hat for the present! The windows,chimney pots and column section near the door are modified N scale castings; the door and plant bench are scratch built from N scale basswood strips; the shingles are heavy textured paper. The landscaping is primarily Woodland Scenics materials and natural stones, with a rosebush made from etched brass in the same way as the Midsomer Cottage example. Height to top of roof: 2 1/4"
