Now I have nothing to do....Well, OK, that's an out and out lie. I have plenty to do, but it is just such a feeling of relief to have the things in the mail that I feel like I am free...for today anyway.
Of course, as soon as Tessie found out that I was done, she started in about her latest dollhouse. It was mine until she saw it. Now it is hers....no arguing about it....HERS!
I took the pieces out of the bag to make sure that they were all there. They were.
Then I started painting the outer shell. The parts weren't even dry when Tessie started trying to put them together. All the time, she was complaining that they were wobbly and warped. I had to sit her down and explain that they wouldn't be if she would just let them dry.
I don't remember who makes this kit. There was no label on the sack. I think that it is Laser something....or something Laser.
It is too bad that they don't make the pieces out of thin plywood like some of the railroad models are. I have to admit that these really do warp a lot! They will flatten out when they are dry, but it is a nuisance.
One thing I do like about the kit is the windows and doors. They are cut from a separate sheet and fit behind the brick wall. That part can be painted and then glued to the back of the brick wall. Therefore the windows are set back from the brick and look very good.
That is as far as I have gotten today. I am contemplating either doing some yard work or cleaning the workroom....Have you looked in there lately?
I don't understand how it can look like this when all I am doing is a couple of pieces of wicker....
I tell you it is a nest of gremlins that come out at night and mess things up for the fun of it!
Oh! One thing I forgot to show you. Yesterday, after I finished the wicker, I made a place for the weaver's room box. I still have to do a few things to it, but at least it now has a place to live.
I rearranged things in the bookcase so that it can sit next to the Early American kitchen. At least, now it won't have to sit on the family room table for the next six months....I can easily slide it out if I feel the need to work on it.
I guess that I should go back to work now....I don't wanna!!! I want to vegetate. That would be a lot more fun....Decisions....Decisions....
See you tomorrow.
