Two Tiny Gremlins...

Slowly but surely I am getting there...

I think I am spending more time washing and peeling glue off of my fingers than I am building trees...  Maybe that's why they say that only God can build a tree...

Don't bother suggesting that I use disposable gloves.  Those are even worse.  They stick together and to each other when working with both hands...

Work five minutes.  Wash hands for five minutes... The time is about equally divided...

On the last side, I am trying to decide if I want two more trees in the middle...Probably... It depends on my stick-to-it-ive-ness... Hush!  I can hear the groans from here!

You can tell that I get distracted when I am not having a lot of fun... The gremlins come into the picture...
Literally! I am not sure what they are up to, but when they start appearing in my drawings, I have to put the pencil down and go do something else...
I did manage to get one of the branches on the left to come out towards the viewer.  I am going to do more when I see if the thing is steady when the glue dries.

I used copper telephone wire.  I wedged one end into the string of the trunk and the other end got glued to the rafter that sticks out. 

I will probably do it in a couple of other places if it works.

I am pleased that the windows still open and close with the branch coming across the center.  I have to do another one of those on the other side too.

"Strung out." is the phrase of the day...

See you tomorrow.
