Tessie was following me around like a hungry puppy all day today. I started with painting some of the windows to put into the quarter inch house that I was messing with yesterday....No. I didn't get them painted at the meeting yesterday....Can we say sidetracked? Again?
OK, I confess. I was roped into working on the Kumihimo...Get it? Roped in....Please stop groaning.... No more puns, honest.
I did find a photo that will add to the atmosphere of the house and can easily get all of the windows that I need from it.
Now back to the kumihimo. I tried out some of the silk cord. that is the braid that Tessie is holding. She keeps petting it and murmuring, "Smooth and soft. Smooth and soft." Then she throws in a "Shiny" once in a while for good measure. The other core is interesting....I used a variegated yarn and it keeps changing color from an orangy red to blue green. That one is done with "Watercolors" over dyed cotton thread from a regular needlework shop.
I am having a good time trying different combinations. Each one turns out different from all of the others. Poke the photos if you want to see them up close and personal.
Now the good news....For Tessie anyway. I actually started working on the townhouse a little while ago.
I am cutting trims for the interior.....With her help it is moving kind of slow.
She is whistling a happy tune.
I am listening to rolling thunder outside. I am thinking that it might be a good idea to cut this short and move away from the computer for a while. I still have a work room to clean. Back to the grindstone.
See you tomorrow.
