Leaning to the Right...

I didn't get as far as I thought I would yesterday.

I am trying to decide if I want wood steps or wrought iron.  That would be the plastic canvas sprayed with Krylon mat black Fusion. I am leaning towards that.

 I ran straps of black quilling paper around the tree where the steps will be attached and drilled holes above each one.  I forgot to dust before I took the photos.  They will look a lot better when I finish.
I plan to use the dowels, out of a place mat, painted black for the outer supports. 

This is a VERY rough idea of what is going to happen.  The dowels will run through the steps and also be the handrail.

See?  The yellow tape did come in handy... Just not for measuring, so far.

I am going to have limited time again today.  The witches are coming here this afternoon.  Lunch and minis.  I have to go get ready.

See you tomorrow.

Is the picture of your Daisy? I am really interested in the steps. I have some I am just not quite happy with and looking for a better idea. You have lot of them! Better ideas

Katie, the woman in the photo is similar to my grandmother, but its not the real one. My grand mother wasn't around when that photo was taken. Although, if Daisy is time traveling, it might be her. I just don't recognize her as she looks whilst wandering around 1880s AZ.
