Love the figure.
Probably someone else will have to offer tips, though . . .

Greetings to all...

Here's my version of the cottage with balcony that Maria shared with us...mine is slightly different...but very similar...I did add a chimney and my fence style has not been decided on just yet...I'll be posting other pictures later...and hopefully a pattern sheet...stay tuned...

Howard...

PS...I've not been very creative for the last several months...my life was "rudely interrupted" by some medical issues...but hopefully most of that is history...
