I am still working on the half inch house, but at Tessie's insistence, I am also finishing off the 1" scale wicker pieces that I found in the drawer.
I am nothing, if not sneaky. I picked the plant stand. It was the closest to done.
All I had to do was finish wrapping the legs, trim all of the wires, braid and then put the braid around in three places.
That doesn't sound like a lot. But then the braiding takes longer that you think.
I speed it up quite a bit by using a clipboard.
It also helps when Tessie keeps reeling in the finished braid. The clipboard is like a third hand.
Ta da! One down! Well really it's not down yet. This just means that I will, at some point, have to pull out all of the flower making materials. I like this type of planter with nice bright geraniums.
Tessie already has a spot for it. I am afraid that all of the unfinished pieces are going to show up in the townhouse or go in Tessie's stash...
I stained the roof on one side darker this morning. It still needs a lot of highlighting and other shading if I go with this color. I am almost tempted to turn it into slate...
I have to think on it for a while...
See you tomorrow.
