Mini Working, Starting Now...

First of all, this is the flower stalk from one of my succulents.  I threw some green paint on the stem.  Missed a few spots, but over all, I am satisfied with it.  I will have to add leaves, but if sprayed with fixative, I think that it will work for minis.
 I scotch taped the outer screen pattern in place.  It fits.

I cut the two pieces of ceiling tile that I need for the divan.  Those fit...

Tessie informed me that she allows Mic on the divan...Mic sits anywhere he wants.  No arguments.
She also is standing over me with a whip and a chair, in order to get the divan finished so that she can take a nap on it.

Here's the first step. 

I am wrapping the front of a half inch strip of card stock with batting and then fabric. 
these will go over the sides to make the mattresses.

Here's the bottom strip, in place. I am thinking that I will tuft the top of the mattress.  That will mean cutting another piece of card stock to fit the top and covering it with batting and a larger piece of fabric that will wrap around the sides.

As you can see, certain people(and animals) are anxious for the North African room to be livable...

I didn't have the heart to tell them it was mother's day.  So....I will be tufting as soon as I am done here.

I'm done now. Back to the mattress. Happy Mother's Day to you all.

See you tomorrow.
