The forum is so quiet, and at least I think we do have people checking in - although I can't see statistics for the website... Welcome to all the new people who have recently joined the Fine Miniatures Forum. I love the new year from a perspective of my modeling adventures - it is always a time to examine my progress or lack of progress. So what is everyone working on? What is the one project that you would really like to start or finish this year? I have a really, really long list that I keep as a memo on my cell phone... 2017 is my year to clear some of these projects off my list, so the first two things that I am working on finishing for 2017 are: - applying a finish to wood in the cold winter weather is very challenging here; I don't have the facilities or warmth that I perceive I need to spray finish on wood in the winter, so I am experimenting with hand rubbed finishing processes... I have hat stands that I turned in 2015 and 2016, and some boxes that I made in a Boorum class that I am using as test subjects. I am doing the trial run before I apply the finish to my 2017 Williamsburg Spice chest. - I started a Grandmother's hexagon quilt a long, long time ago, that I am on the last outer row of quilting and then the quilt will be finished and I just have to decide about the pillows! So these are the items I have been working on first quarter 2017... I am hoping to have a couple of photos for the forum by the end of March! I have to get the quilt finished so I have something to share with my petitpoint friends for show & tell at the Chicago International... What are you working on? What do you want to finish? What do you want to start? (My humble attempt to get you to post?!!!)
I am happy to report that the forum has its 525th member! 525 people worldwide who love collecting, playing, and making fine scale miniatures. I would love to have at least 20% of you post to this topic and tell us what you are working on...I would be thrilled if we got 50% of you to share what you are working on now. Its the dog days of summer here in the US...and the middle of winter south of the equator... The weather is / has been perfect here in the Midwest for the past week and it looks like I'm going to get another week of beautiful days and cool evenings... so it is perfect time for me to be in the workshop. Here are my current projects: I'm committed to 100 hours on my lathe, so I'm hoping to spend some time with my wood lathe this weekend. I want to make some post turnings for practice. I need to finish the boxes from Pete & Pam's class from the NAME Convention, and I need to make a Christmas gift for my club exchange - that I have not started that is due in 2 weeks. Maybe I'll give a box?? or a turning? I still haven't tried any face plate turnings, and I still need to work on finishing my class from Guild School...since I'm employed and have 4 generations of family in our little city, miniatures are interrupted by working and real life. Is it a structure? A piece of Furniture? a beautiful textile project? I have a long, long list of things I'm dreaming of making....hope you have time to share with the forum... Tamra
