New Directions....

 The living room wallpaper is out...I couldn't find any fabric that I liked with that shade of blue.  It was sort of dusty and most of the stuff I have just didn't work with it. 

So....I pulled out a lot of fabrics that I thought that Daisy could live with....I don't know about Daisy, but Widget took an immediate liking to them.
I went out to get some more coffee and when I came back, he was almost asleep in the middle.  He seems to like the mini leopard print best....

Well, I should do something....else.
I threatened to do it and I did!  I cut out curves in the corner pieces just now.  It certainly does make a difference in the view.  Before, you couldn't see any of the bump out in the kitchen.  And from certain angles, that corner post in the living room blocked quite a bit of the view. 

The cottage is chattering away at me now.

But so is the workroom....Maybe I should spend a bit of time in there, in self defense. If I don't do something quickly, I will not be able to get in there to get needed supplies. 

Back to the grindstone...

See you tomorrow.

I read your blog everyday and I admire your work and your passion for miniatures. You have so many brilliant ideas. It is a real pleasure to me to read about adventures of your dolls after a hard day. It is my reward :-)By the way, the armchair you have made recently is absolutely fantastic.

I didn't quite understand yesterday what you meant about cutting out curves and such but I knew it would become clear and it did! Daring move but it does make a big difference! Very smart solution. I love following this build, I learn so much!!

This is so much better! Now we will have a good view of the interior!

Hello Casey,
I am almost ashamed to admit I never would of thought of cutting the pieces to that shape. It looks just wonderful!
Big hug,

I love the cut outs - they add so much more interest to all the straight lines. I'm quite tempted now to try something radical with the kitchen back wall of my Lily (instead of a square cut out). You are really inspiring me - thank you!

veo que mi gato Ron no es el unico al que le encanta dormir sobre cualquier trapo, lo de los materiales revueltos son solo es cosa tuya , es una pesadilla muy comun
veo que la casa va avanzando
