In response to Bill's challenge, here is what's on my workbench today. My workbench is my kitchen table, and it has overflowed onto the kitchen hutch. The petitpoint in my hand is actually further along than that now, but the person who commissioned it has asked me not to show more recent pictures until she can show it off herself. When I finish that, I need to finish the stockings and rug to send off to another customer. The stacks of wood are the first miniature lumber I've cut myself, and it still needs to be thicknessed. It's for several different projects - a 1960s credenza and a 1930s dining set with expandable table that has the two leaves stored inside. The copper pieces are for a Stickley rocking chair. The brick in progress is for the hearth/wall in the Dick Van Dyke Show living room. If you look closely, you can see evidence of real life projects too, namely some painting in the kitchen (had to take down the brass towl bar and the switch plates). (The stockings are on 48 ct gauze, the elephant rug on 40, and the one in progress is on 72.)
