Robert,

I've read them all. Rand is rather long winded and I get the point way before she gets to it. If you do Courtland without Roark's exact design, it'll get destroyed.

I'm a mid century architecture fan. By far the best IMO is John Lautner's projects. He studied under Frank Lloyd Wright but got the math right on the difficult projects. Wright's Falling Water has had structural problems since the house was finished.

Yeah, the dots would be time consuming but not all of his stuff was the dot comic. The foundation might come after me for emulating his work even though some of his work emulated copyrighted disney stuff. Ironic that the foundation threatens people with infringement just downloading a picture for reference.

Here is a peek at what I am working on now... all surfaces are embroidered, and many items in the interior will be finished using trompe l'oeil in embroidery.

Wow, Robert that is amazing, fantastic work! So are you embroidering on stabilizer or something else to size then adhering it to your wooden model and is it for someone special?

Would love to see more of what you come up with especially the interior bits and bobs. Great job!

Thanks LinenLvr! This is the project that our blog will be formed around. Once it is up and a few posts I will share the link.

Just sewing on cut away pellon. Actually it is a marketing piece... A Victorian house.. back when craftsmanship mattered and was expected... when Honesty was the norm... 2X4s were actually 2 X 4... not engineered lumber like today.. etc. Figured this and a couple of large pieces would be all I would need as a small booth at shows.

Also am hoping to market the individual pieces that are created... rugs, curtains, etc.. to dollhouse fans. Niche marketing.

The mother of a friend (now in his 40's) found some of his EARLY artwork. I saw it and decided it would make a super embroidery design. I made a sample using variegated threads to try for the same effect as the original, but decided to do one in solid colour and metallic threads for myself.
I am still waiting to get a shirt or sweater from him in order to make him his own.
If you like this I'll put on others with my fun digitizing.
