It is now the pattern for the floor. I decided that the time doing the ceiling would be better spent doing a floor that would be seen without headstands.
Tessie and Zar dropped in to see how the windows were coming.... They aren't.. I am still thinking on that. I have a couple of ideas, but I can't find my soutash braid...
You may be asking yourself how quilting comes in...Here it is.
I happen to be a fan of hexagon quilts and have used this template for them for many years.
I went and dug it out of the quilting stuff in the closet, laid it in the very center of the hexagon and marked everything on the template.
That gave me a starting point and lots of reference points on the floor. I can use them to make sure that the design in all six sections are the same.
I am using the "dots of glue" method to attach the veneer. This will keep the floor from warping.
After the wood is laid and the finish is applied, I will simply glue the whole thing in place. Much easier than trying to get my hands in the tower to do it.
As you can see, I just started...This could take all day just to lay the veneer. So....I am going back to work now.
See you tomorrow.
