Walking the Plank
I am close to running out of planks again. I got the back wall of the second floor timbered. Some of the side walls. A little of the outside. Some of the basic ones in the bottom floor.
I am still nowhere close to being finished.
I talked Tessie and Zar into taking down the blue tape, after everything was dry...I don't think that they will voluntarily do that again....They both looked like Blueman mummies when the tape was down.
I have a very limited pallet of silk thread. I am going to have to go find some green at the quilting store soon.
This time, I did a bit of a sampler.
In the space of less than a square inch, I have seven different stitches. From top to bottom, there are rows of stem stitch, blanket stitch, herringbone stitch, feather stitch, stemmed french knot, fly stitch and single french knots on the end of the fly stitches.
Now back to the regularly scheduled program...
I want to finish all of the half timbers, with the exception of the connecting timbers. Then I will do that.
It is coming along. Slowly but surely...At least I am not bored, working on two buildings at once.
Back to work now.
See you tomorrow.
