The forum has how many members? My forum experience comes from participating in a Petitpointers Yahoo group, and collectively this international group of guys and gals are the most proficient miniaturists that I have ever had the honor to know! As Spring is Dawning here in the US, my thoughts are always optimistic at this time of the year, and I dream of those blocks of uninterrupted time to create. Luckily, employment keeps me in a balanced state and humbled by my lack of progress. (I do have a legitimate excuse!) So all of you who are new to the forum, or you haven't posted in a while, we would love to hear what is on your bench.... I have many unfinished projects. I recently spoke to another miniaturist on the phone and he asked me what I specialized in... hmmmm... I replied starting something new... well at least I am true to my creative soul, and only wish I could specialize in finishing what I've started. This is what is on my bench... Whitledge Burgess roombox kit received April 2015, - that has not seen the light of day.... what were they thinking? This was a 4 day class? R-E-A-L-L-Y????? I'm thinking 5 months of evenings or I need to stay home from miniature traveling and take a week off to concentrate on this one. A needlework stand from GS 2015 - more turning practice is required to get to that exquisite place where I am pleased with the results. I did recently purchase more rosewood and it has been planed and cut into nice pieces for more practice. A more accurate conversation with myself at 12:30 am...... how many turnings do I have to create to get two to match..... ha.... I don't turn at 12:30 am... just contemplating my projects. A Belle-époque dress from GS 2014 - I'm still looking for that perfect piece of antique lace... A Guild Study Program overmantle - still need to make wallpaper color decisions for this room, that will become a bedroom in my dream miniature build. Do I want a muted yellow or use the authentic yellow - customized colored wallpaper is expensive.... I'll be taking my silk fabric samples with me to Chicago to see if I find any options. As I am hopeful that I will not bring home an unfinished project from GS this year, and I won't be in equipment acquisition mode when I return home, I am optimistic that I can get 2,3&4 finished this year, subject to family responsibilities... I hope I can get some of you (lurking miniaturists) to post about something you want to create, finish or start in 2016... What is on your bench? Tamra
