Now Open For Business...

Tessie and Zar put up the sign this morning... NOT ONE customer in sight.  I do believe that the neighbors were frightened away by the shop warming party yesterday.

Anyway, they had to borrow Reggie's ladder that he uses to get to the roof of the Forest Fantasy Cottage and the ladder that Daisy uses to get up to the Time Machine Station on her roof.

Between the two of them... They managed to do it without too much damage....

I made the sign in my "Print Shop" program and then put an edge on it with fancy gold paper tape.

They refused to get out of the way, so that you could see the sign.  It says, "Tessie's Weaving &Zar's Woodworking".  That's all I could talk them into. 

Here's a little better view of the workshop.  The chair that Tessie is sitting in is one of hers from the townhouse potions room... Zar got it glued and screwed back together where she tore off a leg, dragging it around...

She plopped down in it as soon as he was finished.  Glue is NOT dry. 

She proceeded to try to warp the inkle loom that I made for her... So far, she has included her head and both hands in the process.Before she started, she gave Spike the end of the yarn.  That was a precaution.  She figures that he can always run outside and down the street to untangle her...Always thinking ahead...

I do believe that the Terrible Two are going to be each other's best customers. 

Tessie is always in need of furniture repair.

Zar is always in need of a new shirt, pair of pants or just a blanket.

It was a wise decision on my part to finish this project.  The two of them will be keeping each other out of my hair for the next few weeks... Maybe... We shall see. 

Back to work.

See you tomorrow.

of course they could always make woven wood baskets...

Awwww, they both look so comfortable and industrious in the Workshop. Personally, I think that it is a good thing that they not only enjoy being in each others company, but also that they both NEED each other's company! :D

Hi Casey. You always make me laugh! That first photo was quite amusing! I'm happy
to see that shop completed. Since they need each other services, I hope they can
remain friends.
Thanks for replying to my questions.I have a few places where I need to use that
technique. If I close up the stairway hole in one cottage I was working on, I can
continue working on it and not be concerned on how they are going to get to the second
floor. I have a problem with doing stairs. I could also decorate and leave the floor
hole and worry about the stairs later.

They already do, Karin. I am over run with baskets! But that's a whole other shop.LOL

Phyllisa, this building was supposed to have an outside stairway. I just left it off. If Tessie wants to get to a different floor, she can just zap herself to the other place she wants to be. Surprisingly, the only people that ask where the stairs are, are children. They always want to know where the stairs are and the bathrooms. They know what is important!

Elizabeth, those two wouldn't know what to do without each other... Nobody else could or would put up with them!LOL
