The Russians Are Coming!
When we got back, I worked on the Russian rug for a while...
A black background is always good for showing off needlework... If it doesn't move.
I got lucky. Kota was not in the mood to move just because I laid something on his back. We won't talk about the look of disgust on his face...
I am missing a samovar that I made when I was working on this before... I have the feeling that it is on the floor behind one of the bookcases that the cottage was living on over the past couple of years.
The balalaika and the furniture are all pieces that I copied from the real thing.
The bed slides under the roof on the right side in the daytime.
Tessie did try it out when I first made it and approved, even though the cottage is not for her.
This house will live here until April gets a larger real house.
This and the western movie set that I made a long time ago are hers... There is just no room for them at her place right now.
I also have to frame the windows and build a door.
Back to work.
Lots to be done.
See you tomorrow.
