Roped and Hog Tied....
I just didn't like the way it was swaying. Not enough bracing and the ropes were going to warp it even further. I think that's the hazard of turning this one into the mini.
I decided to put a bit of extra bracing under the rope area. I know it's not authentic, but I am not to worried about the bed police coming to take me away. By the way, I used #5 DMC pearl cotton for the rope.
Then I went to get it. I knew immediately where it was.
Thank goodness for one of a kind beds in different sizes.
The mattress was a wee bit too large. I absolutely am not going to remind her that the coverlet is removable....Let's just let her think that she will have to make a new one.
Don't you dare tell her either!!!
Meanwhile, I am going to have to go make another mattress and put her to work on a coverlet.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
