Design Change....or Tessie Tattled!
I started doing the smoothing along the edges of the stone work, with spackle.
As I worked, Tessie read me the letter. And I quote.
Dear Ones, It has been called to my attention that the cottage will be rather plain. Tessie sent me the drawings with her ideas. I LIKE crenelations. I WANT crenelations on the edges of the bays and tentatively elsewhere as well. And I want LOTS of stonework! Maybe all stone. Get on it! NOW! As Ever, Daisy Eulalia. P.S. I am now in England, checking out stonework, if you need to get in touch.
So.....I went back to work and started with the center of the kitchen bay window frame.
Tessie inspected everything I did. She knows that she has clout with Daisy now and she is going to be unbearable to live with. What is more, Spike is backing her up. I guess he likes crenelations as well. He can look out over the edge without the fear of falling off.
Notice the pose that Tessie is striking. She somehow got her cuff working...I suspect that Daisy told her how to do it.
That just leaves Zar climbing ladders. And me making crenelations...
See you tomorrow.
