Well, I had a really productive weekend again! First I got down to business and really cleaned up the house so I won't have to feel guilty for playing when I should be doing the housework. Then I was even more well behaved and I went out and weeded my hubby's tomatoes and green beans! Now I had earned my play time for sure! I worked a bit on the candy house- I put some of the siding up and finally went for it and glued down the porch posts and attached the balcony. Next, we put up the largest of the dormer windows- when it is dry I'll be able to add posts to the balcony that will help hold up the dormer. Thank goodness for masking tape! After we applied all the glue and I had to wait for things to dry I decided to work on Bernard the Bear's house- his poor house has been neglected for a bit! I made him a coffee table and a side table, and glued some printie tile to his counters in the kitchen. I need to finish more of the kitchen, but it's a start at least!
Here's a weird little picture of the rug I've been working on for Bernard's living room. I am so impatient, so once I had the general shape done I had to take it off the hoop and fold it under and just stick it in the dollhouse to see if I liked the way it looked. I think Bernard likes it, but he reserves final judgment for when it is done.
Last, I'm doing a swap with Ira from http://merryjingle.blogspot.com Ira, if you want to be surprised don't read further. I am pretty new to flower making, but I love working on them. I'm trading some blood red and white lillies for some flowers - or whatever she wants to make really, I love surprises! I am hoping that they look okay- still not totally confident in the flower making department, but I think they look pretty realistic. The white ones are from a kit and the red ones I cut by hand-they are the ones I am worried about. I still have some more to make, but this was a pretty good start! What do you think- are they okay for a swap or should I keep practicing? Oh, how bummed I am to go back to work today and not stay home to play!
