A Little Bit to the Right....
It's hard to sleep when a tiny voice is shouting...."No! Not there! A little bet to the right(or left)."
As you know, Tessie is really good at ordering other people around...The words Drill Sargent come to mind.
She was sitting on the roof, telling Zar where to put the tassels when I first heard her.
I took a quick photo with the flash. Then I went back to sleep...Mind you, they were working in the dark with a flashlight. Most annoying.
I growled at her and went back to sleep with a pillow over my head.
I peeked out and saw that, to my surprise, the gold was back on the front.
They braved the workroom mine field and found the gold embossed paper.
It looks pretty good, but I am not too sure about the plain old straight stuff at the top of the roof....Boring, to say the least.
At least it will be easy to change. If I want this stuff to stay put, I will put a sealer over the whole mess to hold it in place. That's when I gave up. Tessie was shouting again..."A little more to the right!!!"
If I hadn't rushed to the rescue, Zar would have been on the floor, about four feet down from where he was working. That's about four stories of building in mini speak.
I have the booth sitting on top of my jewelry chest/embroidery supply chest...Not enough jewelry and too many embroidery pieces started. What can I say? Some of the drawers were almost empty and the embroidery drawers were overflowing.
Anyway, I did one more of the many swags that I have to do.
Tessie and Zar pinned that up to see how it would look.
Only three more pieces to go on the back wall....Then I start all over with the front wall. I may not do much to the side walls. They will not really be seen much. Maybe some shelves or something.
I still need to do more to the Chinese table too...I had better get back at it now.
Who knows what else they are trying to finish?
Did I mention that Tessie is now trying to hire the nameless gypsy that resides on the second floor of the Witches Warehouse to work in the booth....She already has a couple of other projects in mind....She told me, "I can't spend all of my time looking at the lines on people's hands, the bumps on their heads and tarot cards. I have better things to do!"
It's just a good thing that this is a quick project. I think that Tessie's attention span is getting shorter than mine!
See you tomorrow.
