I was working on new rug designs last night. As I did, I kept looking at the Clockwork Cottage. Since Zar moved back to the caravan, why am I working on that big monster...? It's so boring.....
Then I started thinking about what my friend Anne said last Wenesday.
Then I remembered the stash, under the bed. There is a Storybook Cottage that has been hidding under there for a few years...It would make a perfect little garden cottage for doing my minis and other arts and crafts. I'm not sure that it's big enough for all of them, but I am going to give it a try.
I started this morning....I made one mistake. I left the box out where the Terrible Two could find it. I guess it was noticeable. The Clockwork Cottage had disappeared and this was in it's place.
Not only did Tessie, Zar and Spike notice, even Widget had a go at seeing what I was doing....I think that Tessie called him.
I have all of the pieces punched out and labeled. The lableing part is VERY important, even though I hate doing it.
The pile that you see on the floor is all waste. I will save that until I am sure that I don't need any of it for adjustments.
I am very anxious to get going on this. Maybe, if I let them help, Tessie and Zar will approve. Wish me luck...
Meanwhile, here's the latest rug. I am still working on it, but I thought that you would like a peek.
I am going back to see which of the pieces fit together. I wonder if I could do it in a month, without getting bored? It might be fun to try. Let's see...miniatures, beadwork, knitting, crochet, doll making, basketweaving......It's going to be hard to get everything in there....The mind of the six year old wanders a lot.
"Tessie! Zar! Spke! Come in here. I need help!"
I was scolded yesterday for not putting in a daily reminder to go vote, by a couple of commenters. Even Tessie was miffed. If I don't watch it, she will be out on the street carrying her sign again. We don't want that. She might get lost.
I am going to go glue pieces together now....My favorite motto is, "If all else fails, read the directions.". Has anybody seen those silly pieces of paper anywhere? Oh well....
PS....Oops! I forgot. Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of this blog...I haven't missed a day! That's a lot of blogging!!!
See you tomorrow, with a cottage.
