Welcome to my new Blog

Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats, Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

The walls inside

Yesterday I veneered the inside of the cabin walls with mahogany veneer and everything went well, see below

Outside looking in, veneer glued in place.

From the inside looking out, if you get my drift.

 Much better to do this flat and then put together than trying to fiddle inside the cabin when its made up, I think?

Did a stupid trick yesterday , charging batteries ( "AA" ) to go to the lake to-day I put in four rechargeable and four old non rechargeable, and of course next time I looked the non rechargeable were leaking and the charger was well cooked in their positions, lucky I never leave chargers on when we go out or we could have had a fire!!
So its off to buy another charger to-day on the way to the lake, as I don't trust this one now, got a good offer on at Maplins at the moment, £10 off the price of a charger making it £19.99  Plus 8 "AA" and 4 "AAA" batteries can't be bad.


  1. Very nice, Duckie

    It would be a nice fancy feature, if a thin bead of veneer could be added somewhere....or even a diamond shape......just to break up the surface

    And don't forget a little framed picture or two, stuck on, with a neat picture frame
    The worlds your Oyster now!

  2. There is a magazine out with dolls house furniture given every week and the opening offer is only 99p with lots of plates so could put some on the table and some on the walls hey. this week its a welsh dresser but the price has gone up to £3.99 still not bad though is it!.
